Answer

Radical vaginal trachelectomy with pelvic lymph node dissection is appropriate for fertility preservation in women with stage IA2 disease and those with stage IB1 disease whose lesions are 2 cm or smaller. [8] The principal problems with pregnancy after trachelectomy are premature labor and the need to undergo cesarean section for delivery. [67]
