Cramping After Cervical Biopsy
After a cervical biopsy over a week ago I had sex when the bleeding stopped. It started again and has continued for 6 days. Help cramps, abdominal fever and consistant bleeding. Is this normal?
Vaginal: Vaginal bleeding after sex is often caused by the friction of the penis rubbing against the cervix, so the bleeding is not surprising following your biopsy. However, the cramping and fever are much more concerning symptoms - especially lasting for almost a week. I'm concerned that you could have an infection. You should call your ob/gyne (or the doctor who performed the biopsy) right away. They may want to examine you to determine the cause of your symptoms so that you can have the right treatment. Good luck! ...Read more

Cervical biopsy: The cervix has many small blood vessels, so the bleeding is expected following a biopsy, especially if irritated by sexual relations too soon.

Possibly: Every one heals at different rates from procedures.

If symptoms persist for more than 24 hrs or worsen, always a good idea to contact your md or their nurse to get advice. ...Read more
