Re: LEEP and infection

I didn't have a LEEP, but had a cone. I don't have any real answers for you, but wanted to say Hi since I hadn't seen you around in a week or so. :waving:

My doctor would have done my cone whether I was on my period or not. I wasn't, as it turned out. She also did not have me on antibiotics. I'm sorry I'm no help.

Re: LEEP and infection

Yes, you are right about all of that stuff in your last paragraph.

When my doctor did my cone (and all the other stuff she did: ECC, D&C, uterine biopsy) she finished off with singing the edges where she'd cut for the cone. This greatly reduced my post-cone bleeding. I'm so glad she did that! I bled for 2 days (light) then oozed (clear, brown-tinted discharge) for 2 weeks. I never had bleeding problems others have had. I chalk it up to my doctor essentially doing a LEEP after the cone. Oh, she also put in a stitch or two at the arteries so they wouldn't bleed.

Take care!
