Does Previous Leep Cause Cervical Insufficiency
Having my 3rd leep in 10 years for recurring hsil cervical polyps (1st leep was for mild). Should i be concerned? Should i look into a hysterectomy?
Surgical Risk?: In general, hysterectomy is much more invasive and puts a patient at significantly greater risk than a leep. Further, hysterectomy should only be used when a leep is insufficient, i.e. Positive margins. I do understand the frustration/anxiety entailed by recurrent hsil though -- hysterectomy may be reasonable if your gyn can perform a lower risk procedure, like a laparoscopic or vaginal surgery. ...Read more

Position/pelvic: Certainly get a GYN/ pelvic examination. The cervix can be irritated by deep penetration of a large penis. I would suggest ample foreplay, lubrication, position changes and avoiding any sexual manipulation/penetration,which feels uncomfortable. It is unusual to actually have cervix pain during intercourse, since the cervix is quite posterior in most women. Please see a GYN. ...Read more
I was told during my pap today that I have a downward tilted cervix? What does this mean? Could a leep procedure have caused it
Had a d &c 4 months ago with leep, emb, ecc- chronic inflammation of cervix. Last two cycles I have light pink spotting cd16-18. What can cause this?
Healing: A leep procedure involves removing a section of the cervix for evaluation & treatment of abnormal pap smear and/or cervical biopsy findings. It can take a while for the cervix to heal, especially since the normal vagina contains bacteria and is usually moist. The other biopsies may contribute to spotting as well. ...Read more
