Cervical Ectropion Symptoms
Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?
Not typical: Cervical ectropion is usually just an anatomic variant and not an abnormality. It is possible that this could cause bleeding but is not a common cause. I would confirm the diagnosis. Cervical polyps, endometrial polyps, fibroids, infections and many other things are a more likely cause.
Does cervical ectropion go away on its own? Does it affect chances of getting preg? How serious is this issue?
Common: Cervical ectropian does go away and it does not affect the chances of pregnancy unless doctor has confused ectropion with inflammation from a std, for example. If you're worried, make sure you're free from stds, otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. We see it all the time and is a normal variation.
Can a cervical ectropion bleed daily & abundantly? Been diagnosed with one due to be treated by laser; bleeding has become much worse in past weeks.
Chlamydia testing: A heavy bleeding from a cervical ectropion sound unusual, but I would not completely dismiss it. I would want to be sure, other factors have been ruled out, e.g., a chlamydia infection, and I would want to be sure that testing for HPV is negative, making is highly unlikely that this could be cervical dysplasia.
It makes sense to: Have them removed. Get treatment as well for possible vaginal infection. Take care!
I have cervical ectropion. Dr. treated it with silver nitrate yesterday. Moderate to heavy clotty bleeding today. Is this a normal side effect?
Why Treated?: Cervical Ectropion is usually a normal, asymptomatic variation of the cervix, rarely requiring treatment unless vaginal discharge or post-coital (after sex) bleeding is very bothersome. The 1st treatment is usually to stop OCPs (like Yaz) which are often the cause of this phenomenon, Otherwise electrocautery is performed to ablate the bleeding vessels. Silver nitrate is not as effective.See 1 more doctor answer
Why do I have vaginal bleeding after intercourse? Could it be because of cervical ectropion? I don't have any sexually transmitted diseases
Could be: Cervical ectropion is a possibility especially in a teenager. Cervical infections like chlamydia can do this. Cervical warts from hpv, cervical polyps, irregular periods, hormonal imbalances are some of the other possibilities. Hopefully you are using condoms and are taking birth control. Please schedule a visit to determine the cause and to prevent an unplanned pregnancy.
No: Those are different things. A cervical polyp is a specific piece of tissue growing off the cervix. Ectropion is a normal finding where the internal cells of the cervix are exposed to the vagina.
Bumpy rough are around cervical os, currently 20wk pregnant but noticed this before. Last smear was 9 months ago, all normal. Ectropion? Cancer?
Nabothian cysts: These are likely Nabothian cysts, which are normal and can become more prominent during pregnancy.
At 4 weeks 5 days my 1st hCG was 313, 2 days later 250, my cervix was closed had slight bleeding from ectropion. Am I going to misscarry?! No pain
Possibly yes: In a viable pregnancy the beta hCG concentration doubles every 48 hours. If that is not the case or HCG concentration decreases then the likelihood is that this is not a viable pregnancy.
Bumpy rough area on cervix around the os, currently 20wk pregnant but noticed this before. Last smear was 9 months ago, all normal. Ectropion? Cancer?
My doctor noticed somthing on my cervics and sait was ectropion cervix will this affect me tryin to get pregnant? Also what is it?
Cervical Ectropion: This is a normal variant, and should not affect your ability to get pregnant.
Had a part of my cervix cauterize even though my pap was normal&i now I'm hearing now it wasn't necessary cause I didn't have ectropion. What will happen?
Probably just fine: Ectropion is a common cervical finding that is rarely associated with any worrisome condition. Cautery or laser treatment to the cervix is generally reserved for early abnormal changes to the cervix (such as moderate or severe dysplasia) that are discovered by biopsy if one's Pap test is abnormal. The cervix almost always heals well after cautery. Rarely pregnancy/ infertility issues can arise.
Do you need it?: Usually no treatment is required. I doubt the cause is the guy being big. If it's uncomfortable, a gynecologist can remove it as a simple procedure.
Bleeding after sex - US & cervical screening clear 2 months ago, treated for ectropion but bleeding resumed. Could it be vaginal cancer?
I have spotting between periods. I am 18 months post-partum and still breastfeeding. I have had cervical ectropions in the past. What could it be?
Ectropion v. BF: Definitely either ectropion or breast feeding could be the cause. When a woman breastfeeds, she has elevated levels of prolactin, a hormone essential for breastfeeding. Prolactin can interfere with a regular cycle. Ectropions (benign) can also be associated, but more with post-coital spotting of bright red blood. If you're worried, see your doctor for an exam! Be well.
