Perfectly normal.: I would recommend that you limit sexual activity and core exercise issues It should be greatly improved by 14-21 days depending I on how many biopsies and how deep. Hope this helps

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 cervical biopsy mon & was told to wait 3-5 days before sex tired to have sex Thur & didn't continue due to cramps & later blood discharge am I OK?

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. Just refrain from sex for another 3-4 days, and it will heal, but you might have some minor spotting or even bleeding, but no harm has been done. ...Read more

Had a cervical biopsy done now im having a tissue discharge. Looks kind of like skin and its been going on about 2 days now. Is this normal?

Maybe: Sometimes coagulated blood looks like tissue (it's the plasma portion of your blood, that when coagulated takes on a stringy, tan appearance). Cervical biopsies are typically not too invasive, just a pinch or two of tissue. I would be worried if you have a fever or are soaking a pad in 2 hours or less, or bleeding more than a period. Otherwise, weird discharge is probably okay, just blood. ...Read more

I had a colpo with one cervical biopsy doc told me to wait 3 days for sex. I did now im bleeding again after sex should I be worried? I Did Usecondom

No: During colposcopic cervical biopsy a small piece (about size of a Nerds candy) of the surface of the cervix is removed and usually medication is applied to prevent bleeding. So imagine if someone were to take scissor to cut off a small piece of your nose, then put pressure and medication to stop the bleeding. Then 3 days later someone punches your nose - bleeding is somewhat expected, right? ...Read more

What kinds of cervical biopsy are there, and do they hurt?

Several: A smear / brush shouldn't hurt. A little local anesthetic is plenty for an incisional biopsy. A conization for attempted cure of preinvasive cancer is more but won't be nearly as annoying as a wisdom tooth and gives a strong likelihood of a cancer cure. Good luck, and I'm pleased that you are taking a proactive approach to your health. ...Read more

Green discharge after cervical biopsy, why?

Chemicals: The cervix and vaginal area produce mucus when irritated. This causes a discharge while healing occurs. The biopsy frequently causes some bleeding and this is stopped by applying a chemical to the cervix. The blood, or the chemical, or a combination of both can give you a colored discharge.

If you have fever, pain or other signs of infection, have it checked out. ...Read more

Biopsy: A cervical (cone) biopsy is a fairly large piece of tissue so a topical is unlikely to help much. Also, the local anesthetic could theoretically change the appearance of cells under the microscope for the pathologist.
