Cervical ectropion due to be treated by laser; symptoms much worse - bleeding daily & abundantly, not related to intercourse. Potential other disease?

Cervical polyps, endometrial polyps, fibroids, infections and many other things are a more likely cause.
Can a cervical ectropion bleed daily & abundantly? Been diagnosed with one due to be treated by laser; bleeding has become much worse in past weeks.
Chlamydia testing. A heavy bleeding from a cervical ectropion sound unusual, but I would not completely dismiss it. I would want to be sure, other factors have been ruled out, e.g., a chlamydia infection, and I would want to be sure that testing for HPV is negative, making is highly unlikely that this could be cervical dysplasia.

Please schedule a visit to determine the cause and to prevent an unplanned pregnancy. Read more...
