Thanks for posting your query.
The erosion is a superficial loss of mucosa exposing friable tissues underneath, it bleeds when touched or when the penis rubs on it.
It is a cumbersome problem and you should follow up with your Gynecologist because it is she who has seen the erosion.
If it does not heal with medicines then may be it would need to be cauterised in OT.
You should understand that there are fare chances that you would get an HIV infected child which would make the life miserable.
frantic efforts to get pregnant would rarely help, rather understand the ovulation rhythm from your Gynecologist and try to do sexual intercourse during the ovulation phase.
Still if you want to be pregnant that is up to you, keep a regular follow up with a Gynecologist and your physician.
I hope your query has been answered. I will be happy to solve your further queries. In case you are satisfied with my answer, please close the discussion and put a rating for it.
