Does cervical ectropion go away on its own? Does it affect chances of getting preg? How serious is this issue?

Common: Cervical ectropian does go away and it does not affect the chances of pregnancy unless doctor has confused ectropion with inflammation from a std, for example. If you're worried, make sure you're free from stds, otherwise, i wouldn't worry about it. We see it all the time and is a normal variation. ...Read more

Can a cervical ectropion bleed daily & abundantly? Been diagnosed with one due to be treated by laser; bleeding has become much worse in past weeks.

Can a cervical ectropion bleed daily & abundantly? Been diagnosed with one due to be treated by laser; bleeding has become much worse in past weeks.

Chlamydia testing: A heavy bleeding from a cervical ectropion sound unusual, but I would not completely dismiss it. I would want to be sure, other factors have been ruled out, e.g., a chlamydia infection, and I would want to be sure that testing for HPV is negative, making is highly unlikely that this could be cervical dysplasia. ...Read more

At  4 weeks 5 days my 1st hCG was 313, 2 days later 250, my cervix was closed had slight bleeding from ectropion. Am I going to misscarry?! No pain

Possibly yes: in a viable pregnancy the beta hCG concentration doubles every 48 hours.if that is not the case or HCG concentration decreases then the likelihood is that this is not a viable pregnancy. ...Read more

Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?

Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?

Not typical: Cervical ectropion is usually just an anatomic variant and not an abnormality. It is possible that this could cause bleeding but is not a common cause. I would confirm the diagnosis. Cervical polyps, endometrial polyps, fibroids, infections and many other things are a more likely cause. ...Read more

I have cervical ectropion. Dr. treated it with silver nitrate yesterday. Moderate to heavy clotty bleeding today. Is this a normal side effect?

I have cervical ectropion. Dr. treated it with silver nitrate yesterday. Moderate to heavy clotty bleeding today. Is this a normal side effect?

Why Treated?: Cervical Ectropion is usually a normal, asymptomatic variation of the cervix, rarely requiring treatment unless vaginal discharge or post-coital (after sex) bleeding is very bothersome. The 1st treatment is usually to stop OCPs (like Yaz) which are often the cause of this phenomenon, Otherwise electrocautery is performed to ablate the bleeding vessels. Silver nitrate is not as effective. ...Read more

Had a part of my cervix cauterize even though my pap was normal&i now I'm hearing now it wasnt necessary cause i didnt have ectropion.What will happen?

Had a part of my cervix cauterize even though my pap was normal&i now I'm hearing now it wasnt necessary cause i didnt have ectropion.What will happen?

Probably just fine: Ectropion is a common cervical finding that is rarely associated with any worrisome condition. Cautery or laser treatment to the cervix is generally reserved for early abnormal changes to the cervix (such as moderate or severe dysplasia) that are discovered by biopsy if one's Pap test is abnormal. The cervix almost always heals well after cautery. Rarely pregnancy/ infertility issues can arise. ...Read more

Can having palomar laser skin resurfacing under the eyes - in the dark circle region - cause an ectropion? I was told it could, but not sure about it.

Can having palomar laser skin resurfacing under the eyes - in the dark circle region - cause an ectropion? I was told it could, but not sure about it.

Possible but unlikel: Ectropion is an out turning of the lid margin causing the lid to lift away from the eyeball. Tightening the lower lid in a vertical fashion can cause it to turn outwards but it is very unlikely that the laser could cause this degree of tightening and lid rotation. Ectropion usually occurs in the older population due the muscle laxity. The treating doctor can eval you for any laxity. ...Read more

I have spotting between periods. I am 18 months post-partum and still breastfeeding. I have had cervical ectropions in the past. What could it be?

I have spotting between periods. I am 18 months post-partum and still breastfeeding. I have had cervical ectropions in the past. What could it be?

Ectropion v. BF: Definitely either ectropion or breast feeding could be the cause. When a woman breastfeeds, she has elevated levels of prolactin, a hormone essential for breastfeeding. Prolactin can interfere with a regular cycle. Ectropions (benign) can also be associated, but more with post-coital spotting of bright red blood. If you're worried, see your doctor for an exam! be well. ...Read more
