Depends: First there are three types of conization (laser, cold knife, and LEEP). All may be associated with some light bleeding, though it should get better with time.

See your doctor: What you have been told is true in that the cervix may be shorter after a cone biopsy. There are ultrasound protocols that can determine when and if you may need a "stitch" after conization (known as a cerclage). Ultrasound monitoring of cervical length is helpful. ...Read more
