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?

Vaginal : Vaginal bleeding after sex is often caused by the friction of the penis rubbing against the cervix, so the bleeding is not surprising following your biopsy. 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. You should call your ob/gyne (or the doctor who performed the biopsy) right away. They may want to examine you to determine the cause of your symptoms so that you can have the right treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Green discharge after cervical biopsy, why?

Chemicals: The cervix and vaginal area produce mucus when irritated. This causes a discharge while healing occurs. The biopsy frequently causes some bleeding and this is stopped by applying a chemical to the cervix. The blood, or the chemical, or a combination of both can give you a colored discharge. If you have fever, pain or other signs of infection, have it checked out. ...Read more

Had a cervical biopsy done now im having a tissue discharge. Looks kind of like skin and its been going on about 2 days now. Is this normal?

Had a cervical biopsy done now im having a tissue discharge. Looks kind of like skin and its been going on about 2 days now. Is this normal?

Maybe: Sometimes coagulated blood looks like tissue (it's the plasma portion of your blood, that when coagulated takes on a stringy, tan appearance). Cervical biopsies are typically not too invasive, just a pinch or two of tissue. I would be worried if you have a fever or are soaking a pad in 2 hours or less, or bleeding more than a period. Otherwise, weird discharge is probably okay, just blood. ...Read more
