Should be ok now: There are small sore spots on your cervix from the biopsies that should have healed by now. It's unlikely that you will re-open the sores and cause bleeding. Unfortunately, you may have some yucky discharge from the chemical we use on the biopsy spots, but that's about it. Even if you do have some light bleeding or spotting, it's not dangerous, just wait another week before trying again.
