I had a LEEP for CIN I-II three days ago. I've had only slight cramping and no bleeding. Is this normal? I thought i was supposed to bleed a lot.
Great outcome normal: A LEEP is a surgical procedure that removes part of the cervix that is abnormal. For Cin1 and Cin2 there was probably no need for a top hat or extra procedure to remove deeper tissue in the canal. You have had a good outcome and it is normal to have minimal pain or bleeding. Follow your physician's advice on after care to prevent any late bleeding. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can a woman with abnormal cells (cin 3) pass this on to her husband in any way and then if he sleeps with someone else can it pass to her?
CIN3 may come first: A diagnosis of CIN3 may be the first diagnosis, even with previously normal pap smears. The CIN classification is used to indicate the amount of abnormal cells or "dysplasia" present. That is done by determining to what level of thickness (bottom to top) in the cervix that the abnormal cells have grown--e.g. CIN1~1/3; CIN2~2/3; CIN3 full thickness. HPV infection causes CIN1 through CIN3. ...Read more

Needs follow-up!: Cin 3 cervical dysplasia means pre-cancerous cells were found on your pap smear. It's caused by hpv, a virus. The next step is a "colposcopy", which means a doctor looks at your cervix with a microscope after putting vinegar on it. Sounds weird, but the vinegar makes early cancer turn white so it can be removed. This will ensure you don't get cervical cancer later! don't be scared...

Have had a CIN 3 reading b4 & had loop biopsy proceedure done but having pain after sex now & heavy clotting..Could it have returned?
Not likely.: You've just had a cervical biopsy. This is a procedure where some of your cervical tissue is removed. It grows back and there's no harm but it can result in bleeding over the short term, especially if you've resumed activities like intercourse soon after. So try to take it easy for a few days and it should be better. If there's still an issue or if you're still concerned see your doctor. ...Read more
