Had a part of my cervix cauterize even though my pap was normal&i now I'm hearing now it wasn't necessary cause I didn't have ectropion. What will happen?

Probably just fine: Ectropion is a common cervical finding that is rarely associated with any worrisome condition.

The cervix almost always heals well after cautery. Rarely pregnancy/ infertility issues can arise. ...Read more
