Heavy Bleeding After A 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

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

I had a simple cervical biopsy of a prolapsed into my vaginal canal mass thought to be a large fibroid! Still bleeding with cramps is this normal?
Prolapsed fibroid: If you have a prolapsed fibroid then it will need to be surgically removed. Since your doctor did a biopsy my suspicion is that they wanted to confirm the diagnosis before proceeding with surgical management. The irregular bleeding and cramping will likely not resolve until the prolapsed fibroid is removed ...Read more

No fun: The pain from a cervical biopsy can be fairly significant after the procedure. I would take tylenol (acetaminophen) if you have no allergy - try 500 mg every 4 hours tonight.
