Can You Have Sex Right After A Cervical Biopsy
After a cervical biopsy over a week ago i had sex when the bleeding stopped. It started again and has continued for 6 days. Help cramps, abdominal fever and consistant bleeding. Is this normal?

However, the cramping and fever are much more concerning symptoms - especially lasting for almost a week. I'm concerned that you could have an infection.

Healing: Your doctor wanted to give your cervix a chance to heal from the procedure before exposing it to further trauma. The cervix needs to re-grow its protective covering. Depending on the extent of the biopsy, not allowing it to recover could expose you to bleeding, pain, and possible infection. ...Read more
