Would there be a problem if I had sex two weeks after a leep/ cone biopsy procedure?

Bleeding: 2 weeks following a leep is a little early for intercourse. You may disrupt a healing cervix and cause bleeding. Give it another couple of weeks and then only if your doc agrees. If you do experience bright red bleeding 1-2 weeks after a leep, call your doc asap. ...Read more

Biopsy (Definition)

Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Had a leep cone biopsy doctor billed for vaginal wall repair, is that right?

Need more info: A cone biopsy isn't a vaginal wall repair, but perhaps your physician did both. Ask, or get a copy of the operative note and see what is described. Billing for a procedure not done would be fraud and most physicians are honest, so it may have been done or could be a coding error. ...Read more

Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive. Endocervical margins clear. Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?

Leep shows hsil cin3 w/ endocervical gland involvement. Exocervical margins positive. Endocervical margins clear. Pap in 3 months or cone biopsy now?

At least PAP, may: Require bone biopsy later. From the information you provided, you have residual abnormal cells in the cervix and at a minimum you need to monitor the process by pap. Three months is not likely to cause irreversible changes for the worse and you can wait to see the pap results to decide, in consultation with your doctor, if cone biopsy is needed. ...Read more

2 weeks ago today I had a cone biopsy and endometrial biopsy's. I'm still bleeding is this normal?

2 weeks ago today I had a cone biopsy and endometrial biopsy's. I'm still bleeding is this normal?

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. I usually see my conization patients two weeks post op, so you might need a follow up as well. If the endometrial biopsy was for abnormal bleeding then this could be more of that also. ...Read more

What if you are HPV positive and have a cone biopsy to remove dysplasia, but then you get it again?

What if you are HPV positive and have a cone biopsy to remove dysplasia, but then you get it again?

Hpv: Hpv infection like any viral infection can not be cured! Only thing one could do is to have a regular follow up with pap and hpv screen (high risk)! also reduce exposure to multiple sex partners who may bring other strains of this virus to your body. Additionally please rule out the possibility of immune deficiency (diabetes, lupus, HIV, hep c).You could take dietary supplements like curcumin/betacaroten. ...Read more

I've had a knife cone biopsy op & been told when pregnant I may need a stitch, im now pregnant what happens next?

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

I had stopped bleeding from a cone biopsy I had and then 2 weeks later I started bleeding again. Period or from procedure?

Either is possible: At 2 weeks, wounds are usually half way healed and if they are traumatized may bleed again. If it is not yet time for your period and you have no reason to consider trauma then you sould consult with your Gynecologist ...Read more

I have had quite a large piece of my cervix removed during a cone biopsy. Will the hole grow back to normal size or will it stay the same?

I have had quite a large piece of my cervix removed during a cone biopsy. Will the hole grow back to normal size or will it stay the same?

Cervical composition: The cervix is made up of fibrous tissue that generally does not regenerate. Once the cone biopsy removed that tissue the opening to the cervix will still be intact. However, studies have shown that with future pregnancies, premature delivery and miscarriages are a greater risk in extensive cone biopsies. ...Read more

What are some more extensive evaluations and followup procedures to expect after multiple abnormal paps, cone biopsies and a leep procedure.?

What are some more extensive evaluations and followup procedures to expect after multiple abnormal paps, cone biopsies and a leep procedure.?

You named them: The procedures used to evaluate for pre-cancer cells of cervix are: paps, hpv dna probe, cervical biopsy, leep and cold knife conization of cervix. Typically a doctor will remove affected tissue of a cin 3 biopsy until the margins are clear of abnormal cells. At 29, docs should be conservative and try to remove as little tissue as possible, so not to ^ ur risk cervical incompet and preterm birth. ...Read more

Cervical bx: High grade changes (CIN 3) often occurs in a background of lower grade changes (CIN 1 and 2). They go together. So it is possible that the area of CIN 3 was removed by the first biopsy (if that is what you had) and there was only the lower grade changes left when the cone was done. ...Read more
