Hi! If you were my patient, I would try to schedule the biopsy right after your menstrual period, so that your cervix can heal before mid cycle when you would be expected to be ovulating. HPV is sometimes pre-cancerous and needs to be followed up. Often it is something that can be carefully watched with Pap testing and need not affect your plans for pregnancy. Follow your doctor's instructions, but be sure that your doctor knows that you want to conceive too, for the timing and type of biopsies to be done. Good luck! Dr B
