Objective: To estimate if cervical biopsy at the time of colposcopy changes the management or outcome of abnormal cervical cytology during pregnancy.
Conclusion: Biopsy of suspected cervical lesions can be safely deferred until after pregnancy because there were no significant changes between antepartum and postpartum CC and no missed cases of cervical cancer were detected.
