after treatment

Hi, I hope someone can help. Four weeks ago I had treatment for pre cancerous cells. Afterwards I had a very watery discharge for about two and a half weeks that got better when I finished my period. It has now been four weeks and I am starting to get a heavy discharge again. It isn't watery now, just a normal consistency but a lot more of it. Do you think after 4 weeks this is normal or is it time to visit the doctor?

Re: after treatment

What kind of treatment? LEEP/biopsy? And is there any chance that you could be pregnant?

It's probably nothing to worry about as long as it's not a weird texture, smells bad, or is causing you pain or to itch in anyway, but if you have concerns, see your doctor. Your body could be simply re-adjusting itself, so to speak.

Re: after treatment

Hi, thanks for your reply. I'm definitely not pregnant as the fear of having the treatment and not knowing what was wrong with me made me not want to have sex for months beforehand.

I know it sounds daft but I don't actually know the name of the treatment. As far as I was concerned (until I came onto this board) everyone just got their pre cancerous cells removed the same way. I was so glad at the time not to have anything that couldn't be treated I just went along happily with the treatment. Even the aftercare leaflet I got didn't give the exact procedure name.

Re: after treatment

I don't blame you for just being happy that there was treatment! I was, too Shame your doctors didn't provide you with more information though.

Dysplasia is dealt with differently depending on age & the severity of your case. If you were CIN I than you were probably treated with LEEP (Loop ElectroSurgical Excision Procedure), but I'm just guessing here. No matter the treatment, the watery discharge is normal for up to 6 weeks, and since you've already recovered from that, it sounds like you are healing well Cause for concern would be heavy bleeding (more than one pad in an hour), having severe lower belly pain, or a fever. Course if you have concerns, don't hesitate to see your doctor!

Best of luck
