Love Island star Amy Hart has admitted she was “worried” she would have to terminate her pregnancy after discovering she was pregnant following her HPV diagnosis.
Just weeks before she found out she was expecting with her boyfriend Sam Rason, doctors had told Amy not to get pregnant because she has the STI human papillomavirus (HPV) and they wanted to remove abnormal cells from her cervix.
Speaking exclusively to OK!, Amy said: “I’d been told under no circumstances to get pregnant until these cells were out, so I was googling and messaging friends who are midwives but they hadn’t heard of it.
“We spent the whole weekend worrying we were going to be told we’d have to terminate the pregnancy to get the cells out, or that they’d leave it but I could get ill. But Sam said: ‘Your health comes first always.’”
Amy, who has CIN1 and CIN2 cells which can become cancerous, has now been given a consultant who will monitor the cells and check if they are progressing to a worrying level throughout her pregnancy.
The 30 year old continued: “I’ve been given a consultant and they said there is a one in four chance of miscarriage if they remove the cells in early pregnancy.
“But they said if we manage to hold out until 36 weeks and you’re the one in four then that’s just an early labour and you have a viable baby.
“So they said they will leave it as long as they can and keep monitoring them.
"I’m hoping they can be removed after I’ve had the baby. It doesn’t affect the pregnancy but it is quite scary.”
“And at my scan the other day they also said I have four fibroids [non-cancerous growths that develop in or around the womb] but they’re on the outside, so they shouldn’t be competing for space with the baby – but that’s a worry, too. There’s just all this drama with me.”
Amy found out she was expecting in on July 1 and announced the exciting news on last week’s Loose Women.
The star has previously spent £12,000 freezing her eggs and has been open about her fertility struggles, going on to admit the news was “unexpected” as she and Sam weren’t going to start trying until next year.
