Abstract: While abnormal Pap smears are not uncommon during pregnancy, the presence of cervical cancer is much less common. The purpose of colposcopy during pregnancy is to exclude invasive carcinoma. Endocervical sampling and endometrial biopsy are contraindicated during pregnancy. Only invasive carcinoma requires treatment during pregnancy. Postpartum, the 2006 American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) evaluation and treatment guidelines are recommended.
