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.

What does mildly increased lymphoplasmacytic cells mean in my stomach biopsy results?

Common nonspecific: a completely normal stomach biopsy is supposed to show essentially no inflammation. However, it is extremely common to see very mild degrees of chronic inflammation (lymphocytes and plasma cells). Active gastritis due to helicobacter pylori would have acute inflammation, which was not reported in your biopsy.
