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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I have cervical ectropion. Dr. treated it with silver nitrate yesterday. Moderate to heavy clotty bleeding today. Is this a normal side effect?

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. ...Read more

Please can I have info on cervical erosion. I never got any kind if treatment when i was told I have it. Confused? Is there a way to heal it on my own

Outdated term: In the us, this term isn't used, as it doesn't have a specific definition or cause.In other parts of the world, it's been used to describe a red appearance of the cervix, which may be caused by infection, stds, or may be normal.See a gyno now, and ask if there's any abnormal appearance, and get tested for stds if needed. Then use condoms in the future if you may be at risk for stds. ...Read more
