There is no data about the safety of gynaecological laser procedures during pregnancy or when conditions such as cervical cancer are present. A simple urine dipstick test is performed on all women being assessed for a gynaecological laser procedure. In certain instances other tests might also be recommended.
All women aged between 18 and 69 who have ever been sexually active should have regular pap smears. We won’t perform a gynaecological laser treatment unless your last pap smear was normal and less than 2 years ago.
A pap smear is best done by a general practitioner as part of a women’s health check, including other assessments such as a breast examination.
If you are unable or unwilling to see a GP, the doctors at Remedy Plus can perform a pap smear if required. This can be done at the time of your assessment for one our our laser procedures.
Whilst there is no evidence to suggest gynaecological laser procedures might be harmful during pregnancy, the are no studies to show they are safe. For this reason we don’t perform these laser procedures on women that are pregnant.
It is better to be safe rather than sorry so, during assessment for any gynaecological laser procedure, a simple urine pregnancy test is performed on all women of child bearing age.
Only when there is absolutely no chance of pregnancy (sexual abstinence, menopause, vasectomy of sole partner etc) is this test not performed.
