Bleeding 5 days post leep?

I had a leep done on Wednesday afternoon and came home feeling crampy, but had no bleeding. My doctor mentioned I'd have discharge -watery, mustardish looking or spotting, but should not be more than a period. I have had watery discharge since Wed night and on Friday, I began to have the mustardish discharge which he said would be the monsel's solution -there was some clotting, gooey pieces mixed-in but not very heavy. That stopped and I went back to just a watery discharge but today I passed a very large (size of a quarter) blood clot and have had some bleeding since. Again, not heavy, but it makes me nervous since I had not bled prior to this. I'm waiting for the doctor's service to call me back, but that can take up to 3 hours, so I was hoping someone here might have some experience they can share. I'm pretty freaked out and would appreciate any help.

I think they start to get worried when you are bleeding so much that you are soaking a pad an hour for more than a few hours. If this is happening, or if you have a very foul odor or fever, you should go to emergency.

Is it possible you may be getting an early period?

Re: Bleeding 5 days post leep?

I'm on birth control pills and still in an active pill week; my period isn't due to start for another 12 days, so I don't think that's what it is. It's tapered off quite a bit and I have no odor or fever, just slight cramps. I was on my feet more today than any day since, so I'm wondering if that might have been a factor

Glad to hear it is tapering off for you. That's a good thing! Certainly being on your feet more could be the culprit, I think you should still mention this to your doc just to be on the safe side, but i think you are okay

Re: Bleeding 5 days post leep?

I also bled some after my leep. It is completely normal. I had discharge and/or bleeding for a good 3 weeks after my leep. It was never a foul odor and I was told it was completely normal. Good luck and try to stay positive. Everybody reacts differently to the procedure so as long as you are not filling a pad like karen32 said and there is no foul smell you should be ok. If you still think that something is just not right...definitely call your doctors office.
