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.

Good luck! ...Read more

Usually, at least 6 months should pass before biopsy and the next pap. Alternatively, sometimes an hpv test is done after 12 months. Ask your doctor what your result was (it is best if you get a copy) so you can review yourself. ...Read more
