Colposcopy in Pregnancy:

Best practice and insider tips

Join Dr. Mary Rubin, BSN, MSN, PhD University of Pennsylvania and Clinical Professor of OB-GYN UCSF, as she shares her experience of more than 40 years performing colposcopy during pregnancy.

Performing colposcopy during pregnancy can be daunting for many clinicians. However, it is very safe as long as you follow the appropriate guidelines.

3-6% of Pap tests performed during pregnancy have abnormal results and cancer occurs in 1:2000-2200 pregnancies. 

In this guide you will learn:
  • When to perform colposcopy in pregnancy
  • Physiological changes
  • Risks of bleeding during biopsy
  • Treatment options for abnormal findings

“Remember that in essence there are two patients instead of one – both the mother and her unborn baby.”

MobileODT Women’s Health Special Populations Project

MobileODT has the honor of working with women’s health clinicians around the world. Increasing immigration and shifts in social norms have led many healthcare providers to interact with patients from unfamiliar backgrounds with unfamiliar considerations.

Our Special Populations Project taps into the collective knowledge within the network of EVA System users that spans 42 countries, to give other clinicians an insider’s view on certain special populations.

These guides are intended to start the conversation and to give clinicians an initial sense of the issues involved. Official protocols and local guidelines should be adhered to in every case.
