It's been 3 weeks since my cryotherapy and I have mild cramps and light bleeding. I'm not sure if it's because of the procedure or my skipped period?

It's been 3 weeks since my cryotherapy and I have mild cramps and light bleeding. I'm not sure if it's because of the procedure or my skipped period?

Cramps: cryotherapy: Cryotherapy causes cramps when performed, and perhaps for 45-60 minutes thereafter, Bleeding from cryotherapy is because the treated cervix is fragile and when healing will easily bleed. Get a serum pregnancy test to be certain your "skipped period" is not caused by pregnancy. Cramps "three weeks later" may be due to early pregnancy, and an ectopic pregnancy needs to be ruled out. ...Read more

Gyno says its normal to have heavy bleeding after cryotherapy. She says its because I'm on depo. I haven't had a period in a year. Normal???

Gyno says its normal to have heavy bleeding after cryotherapy. She says its because I'm on depo. I haven't had a period in a year. Normal???

Errr...: It's normal "up to a point." heavy bleeding for LIMITED times soon after cryo is likely normal, prolonged heavy bleeding or bleeding months after a cryo is likely NOT normal. Depo-Provera does not cause heavy bleeding tho many women describe it as heavy because it's frequent. Keep a close watch on the bleeding and talk with your doctor again if worried. Good wishes. ...Read more

What is the difference between cryosurgery and cone biopsy?

Great: With cryosurgery, the affected area is frozen, which destroys the tissue. How deep this goes depends on the length of the freeze, although there is a limit to that due to the warming effect of the circulation. A cone biopsy, now done by loop excision, removes the affected tissue in pieces. It has an advantage in that the margins can be examined by the pathologist. ...Read more
