Silver Nitrate Side Effects
I have cervical ectropion. Dr. treated it with silver nitrate yesterday. Moderate to heavy clotty bleeding today. Is this a normal side effect?
Why Treated?: Cervical Ectropion is usually a normal, asymptomatic variation of the cervix, rarely requiring treatment unless vaginal discharge or post-coital (after sex) bleeding is very bothersome. The 1st treatment is usually to stop OCPs (like Yaz) which are often the cause of this phenomenon, Otherwise electrocautery is performed to ablate the bleeding vessels.

Silver nitrate can seal prominent blood vessels on the septum but if none of the above factors change, the bleeding can recur after weeks, months, or years. ...Read more
