heavy bleeding and cramping after pap smear

Is it normal to have bleeding and pretty severe cramping after a pap smear? I just went to the gyno wednesday for my 2nd annual and pap smear, and about thursday afternoon I started noticing a little dried/brownish blood and some cramping. By friday morning it was all out heavy bleeding, but it was bright red blood, and has been ever since. I am on birth control and I will start my period this wednesday, and when I do, it will be a light three days with no cramping, just like it always is with my birth control. However, this heavy bleeding and cramping I am having now is like the periods that I used to have before I started taking BC. I've went last year and it wasnt anything like this... Should I be worried?

Re: heavy bleeding and cramping after pap smear

I would call your Dr. I know that some people can bleed after a pap, but if you are in pain and bleeding heavy, you should call your Dr. especially if it is still going on and not getting any better. hope you feel better.

I had the pap done wednesday afternoon and now it's monday and I'm still bleeding. I wouldn't be so concerned if it was only spotting, but it isn't. I guess I'll give my doctors office a call today.

Let us know what they say. Heavy bleeding definitely does not sound normal to me...
