Leep Causing Abnormal Pap
I got abnormal pap test immediately following leep procedure. Did the procedure cause the problem?

So handle these as 2 separate issues for the sake of treatment. I would say hysterectomy is not indicated for treating the cin3(it can be manged with leep). Heavy menses/periods can be often manged with hormonal therapy with help from your gyncologist....Hystrecto last resort. ...Read more
