lletz in early pregnancy?

i think that i may be pregnant, i have all the symptoms but even blood tests take up to 6 weeks after conception to confirm - now would only be about 2 weeks! I am going in on monday - 6 aug - for a lletz procedure - i want to know the risk if i am currently pregnant ...!
Help please!

You should not have the procedure if you are pregnant. You could miscarry. Rather postpone it till you know for sure. Remember that a blood test will be positive on the day of your expected period.

You can take a blood test 2 weeks after conception (as soon as you've missed a period). You can't do a Lletz whilst pregnant - phone your gynea to take the tests and discuss your options.
