If you had abnormal cells in the pap smear, then this needs follow-up. What did your doctor say that thenext step should be?
You are right that there can be genetic problems in the children if you are closely related. If you are willing to take this risk, you should see a gynaecologist for further tests to assess why you are not falling pregnant.
