Will the needle or i.V. Hurt during the loop electrosurgical excision procedure?

Will the needle or i.V. Hurt during the loop electrosurgical excision procedure?

Minimal: There is very little pain with a leep procedure. I do them in my office using a paracervical block which requires an injection on each side of the cervix. Most of my patients do not feel that injection. If I do the leep in the operating room, those patients have an I.V. Which does require a neele stick for its placement - still only a needle stick - minimal pain. ...Read more

Can I do full bikini laser hair removal after 2 weeks of my dilatation and curtage?

Ask your OB/GYN dr.: You want to make sure that your area is not sensitive or inflammed from having the d and c done. So check with your ob/gyn.

So for best comfort, make sure you are at least 3-4 weeks out before doing it, in case you have discharge coming out too. ...Read more

It just happens to some women. Be sure to follow up with your gynecologist and follow all their recommendations. If family h/o uterine, ovarian or breast cancer then ^ surveillance. ...Read more
