The aim of this study is to present our clinical experience about fertility-sparing procedures in early stage cervical cancer and its obstetrical and oncological outcomes. Between the years 2006 and 2016, a total of 22 early stage cervical cancer patients who underwent a fertility-sparing radical abdominal trachelectomy in our clinic were retrospectively analysed. The median age was 33 (range: 28-39) years. The median follow-up was 47 (range: 22-125) months. Five patients (22.7%) had Stage IA1, three patients had (13.6%) Stage IA2, and 14 patients (63.6%) had Stage IB1 disease. Only one patient had a recurrence. A pregnancy was obtained in five patients (22.7%) and one of them (20%) had a live birth. A pregnancy was obtained spontaneously in two patients (40%), whereas assisted reproductive techniques were used in three of the patients (60%). A miscarriage occurred in two patients (40%), and one of them was within the first trimester and the other was within the second trimester.
