Infection After 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

What kind of biopsy does a gynecologist do for women with long lasting vaginal infections would it be a cervical biopsy or endometrial biopsy?
Neither: A biopsy of the cervix or endometrium would not usually help understand the reason for vaginal infections. They might assist in diagnosing persistent cervical of uterine infections (respectively). A vaginal biopsy might help understand some types of persistent true vaginal infections in certain rare cases. Generally speaking, however, cultures help diagnosis infections, not biopsies. ...Read more

Biopsy: A cervical (cone) biopsy is a fairly large piece of tissue so a topical is unlikely to help much.

This is often done under significant sedation of a spinal anesthetic. ...Read more
