In brief: Unusual
Any stress on the body, such as surgery, can prolong or alter the next menses.
It would be unusual for a colposcopy to cause this. However, if a biopsy was performed, the biopsy site can bleed lightly, usually for a day or two. Prolonged bleeding should be addressed by the gynecologist.
