Customer Question

i have had a deep leep 8 weeks ago 2cm dia about 2cm deep.
i am only 25 but they said i should be able to get pregnant but may need a stitch.
I can feel a big crater in my cervix, will that fill over? Does the cervix stroma ever regrow or is that gone for good?
They never said they would take such a big chunk out, but had to do that CIN 2 type 2 TZ

By 8 weeks, the cervix is most likely about the way that it will be from now on. It may fill out a little more, as healing continues for longer than 8 weeks. But I think there will always be a crater.

The stroma regrows to some extent, but most of that process is nearly done now.

You may or may not need a stitch when you become pregnant. It's very difficult to predict, and the body does amazing things. Best wishes.
