I'm still feeling bad 5 days after my colposcopy, biopsy, and cuterage my symptoms are nausea, tired, and sensitive stomach especially after a meal, is this normal?

I'd say see your Dr.: It may be normal to feel nausea and sensitivity after all these procedures, but they should subside after a week or so, and if you don't feel better soon, like in a couple more days or so you should see your doctor soon, to be sure no damage was done during those procedures you had. If there was an unintended woung made, you might have internal bleeding, so is good to see your dr. If not better.

Hello. I had colposcopy done last tuesday I had coffee like bleeding for about four to five days. Its gone for about five days now I have odor?

Follow up with your: Physician for specific advice. Many physicans use a solution to coagulate the biopsy sites that resembles coffee grounds when it dissolves. The presence of blood in the vagina raises the ph and can lead to Bacterial vaginosis which is associated with odor. What you describe is not unusual after cervical biopsy. An exam would make sure all is well.

Infection: A vaginal discharge that is "fish like" often is gardnerella. This is a bacteria that although is not a sexually transmitted disease it is sexually associated. You should get seen.

What could it mean if your colposcopy test results come back normal?

What could it mean if your colposcopy test results come back normal?

Excellent news: This means that you will need a pap smear and hpv test in 12 months. It means that the abnormal pap results do not indicate cancer or pre-cancer. It's a good thing.

I had a colposcopy Friday and I start bleeding yesterday is really dark and today I have little pieces black coming out. Is that normal?

Perfectly Normal: We usually warn that spotting for up to a week is normal after cervical biopsies. Your cervix has to heal and any spotting will turn darker over time. Silver nitrate is often used to control small bleeding areas (cautery) and this is most likely what you're seeing. No worries and be sure to go back for your results. Take care.

Get checked out: There should really be no reason for a foul smell or bleeding 2 weeks after colposcopy. It sounds like you may have an infection. It's best that you see your gynecologist or family doc to get that evaluated. Best of luck!

Do I need annual colposcopy for bad HPV forever?

Do I need annual colposcopy for bad HPV forever?

No: If your pap smear is abnormal, then colposcopy would be the next step. Otherwise, use the pap smear as a screening tool for the need for colposcopy since hpv positive patients do not always develop a abnormal pap.

Is vaginal cancer diagnosticated only with a normal visit or needs a colposcopy? Thanks

Is vaginal cancer diagnosticated only with a normal visit or needs a colposcopy? Thanks

Yes a normal Gynecol: A pelvic exam by your doctor can reveal the tumors. You do not need to have a colposcopy which is mainly done for early detection of the cancer of the cervix.

ASCUS diagnosed, do I have to wait 6 months for cells to return to normal, or can I order a colposcopy right away?

Possibly: Many times an ASCUS is simply due to an infection or inflammation. It is important to see if the HPV or Human Papilloma Virus, result is positive or negative. That will give you more data on whether you want to aggressively request a colposcopy.

What could it mean if your colposcopy test results for HPV come back normal?

HPV: Colposcopy is a procedure where the doctor looks at your cervix with a microscope and biopsies anything that appears abnormal. If your results are negative, that means that the virus hasn't caused any damage yet. Stay strong and healthy, don't smoke and get regular paps to catch any abnormalities that may occur in the future.

E6/e7 detected colposcopy showed one tiny area of cin1 & transformation zone was normal. Better that I ask for hysterectomy?

No, that's overkill: CIN I is just the very first stage of abnormality and studies have shown that it often reverses itself during long term MD monitoring. If there are other GYN related problems such as recurrent ovarian cysts, abnormal pap smears, endometriosis or pain then consideration can be given to more definitive surgery like hysterectomy. Otherwise, that surgery would be gross overkill at this stage.

Had colposcopy and biopsy today and now have small black almost scab looking things inside me coming out when I wipe. What is it and is it normal?

Monsels: After a biopsy, we use a product called monsels. It helps bind the blood and decrease bleeding. However, it comes out like coffee grounds and will stain everything it touches.
