Discomfort, bleeding: Discomfort level varies depending on medications you take/are given during the procedure. After the procedure, unless your doctor advises against it, Motrin/Advil/ibuprofen/Aleve/Naprosyn/naproxen will be helpful. Bleeding amount varies but call your doctor or go to ER if soaking > 2 pads/hr or you have signs of severe anemia. It usually goes away within a week but may return 2-3weeks later.
