Doctor insights on:
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
Too high: As far as you need be concerned, if you neglect a CIN3 lesion, just assume it will kill you -- and it won't be pleasant.

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

How fast can CIN develop? CIN of the cervix. I previously had CIN 3, but no HPV detected. Can it grow back quickly? Thanks
Varies: Many things influence how fast or if it grows back. A healthy immune system with normal levels of folic acid and vitamin D helps keep it in check. Tobacco smoke, even second hand makes it grow back faster. Eat right, get your exercise, avoid tobacco, get plenty of rest and just generally take care of yourself and get your exams and you should be fine. ...Read more

Why did my leep show all 3 cins? 1,2,3? Does that mean that the CIN 1 is still progressing to sin 2 and and will progress to CIN 3?
In a way yes: This is common in patients with severe dysplasia different areas will have no dysplasia and some areas will have mild dysplasia. These findings are better than having severe dysplasia everywhere. All these areas should be removed completely sometimes it is difficult to remove mild dysplasia at the margins margins. Does removing all the dysplasia can be a care. ...Read more

Periods getting slightly heavier on day 3, not on contraception, clear smear after cin 3 (treated) 2 years ago, is this normal? 30 yrs old 3 kids.
Likely: What you described seems to fall within the normal variations in menstrual periods. Due to heavier bleeding you are at risk of iron deficiency anemia. You may consider taking oral iron supplement and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
If I had abnormal cells (CIN 3) which was removed with lletz, how come my recent check up smear was normal with no hpv? I thought I'd have HPV still.
Iv had multiple colposcopys and a CKC. Been diagnosed when cin 3. Pap just came back as ASCUS favor benign. What will happen next?
Continued follow up:
Depending on how long ago, the cone biopsy was, continued surveillance with Pap smears every 6 months to a year is appropriate. When the Pap result is ASCUS, typically HPV testing is done as reflex testing, was this done?
In summary, you need not worry, no further treatment other than continued monitoring is necessary. ...Read more
