    Lots of bleeding post LEEP

    Is this normal? I've gone through one pad every hour for the last 3 hours . I have had one large clot looking mass plop out, 3 smaller ones and one medium one. Way different than my normal period. This is day 3 post LEEP. I called the doctor's office but they never called back. Just left a message with their emergency call line.

    I've also been extremely sick to my stomach for 2 days, throwing up once .

    I don't think this is normal...

    I went through the same thing and this is not normal. You should get in touch with your doctor right away. I ended up having to go in to be sutured two weeks post LEEP because of continued bleeding. Let me know how you make out and good luck!!

    Definitely go back to the doctor. When I had my LEEP, one of the things she told me to look out for was heavy bleeding that soaks a pad in an hour or less. She said if this happened, I needed to contact the office right away.

    Update: Lots of bleeding post LEEP

    'm doing okay. I had a pretty rough evening. We ended up going to
    the ER around 7:45 and got home pretty late. The dr told me that I
    *may* bleed which is normal but if it were more than a period or if I
    was soaking through more than 1 pad an hour, to go to the ER.

    I started vomitting Sunday morning around 4:00am and didn't feel well
    all day. Monday, I nearly vomitted at 9 and started to bleed around
    10:00am . Too many people commented on my pale complexion so I knew
    something was wrong. Around 3, the bleeding got really heavy and
    when I went to change, I had the largest clots come out that I've ever
    seen - about the size of small plums. I broke down in the bathroom and
    luckily, one of my employees came in after I did so she was helping me
    calm down. At the time, I had no idea what that was and all I could
    think of was that I was losing big parts of my cervix . I waited
    another hour to see if my pain and bleeding would ease up and then
    called the doctor at 4. No one called me back and I came home around
    4:45. I was still clotting really bad and, of course, bleeding
    through a pad an hour. Each time I'd change, more large clots. I was
    also trying to get a hold of my friend who is my nurse midwife (we were TTC when all of this displaysia happened). At 5:45, I called the emergency
    line at the doctor's office and they said that should go to the ER. I waited for 2 more hours to see if it subsided but it never did.

    Off to the ER we went. Dr found 3 more very VERY large clots - bigger
    than I had discovered. So much that they had to pull them out before
    they could make sure my cervix was okay. In the end, they said that I
    wasn't hemorrhaging which is why they wanted me to come in in the
    first place. But they had never seen such big clots before and that
    was probably a big cause of the massive bleeding. She said that I was
    "oozing" pretty good but it was ok. They gave me a Vicodin (sp?) to
    ease my cramping and sent me home.

    I had 2 more clotting episodes when I got home but did really well
    overnight. Still swollen, fatigued and cramping but the worst seems
    to have subsided. Hopefully that will stay the same today.

    SIDE NOTE: 2 different doctor's last night said that my LEEP was a
    "good size". I'm mad about that b/c neither one of the doctor's made
    it seem that 2cm wide and 1cm deep was that big of a deal. But when 2
    ER docs comment on it - it makes me concerned with TTC and all
    afterwards I heal. They were really surprised to see ANY clotting
    because of it too. They were going to give me an injection to stop the
    bleeding but because it was such a large area, they said that it
    wouldn't do any good .

    Re: Lots of bleeding post LEEP

    I went through the same thing you did after my LEEP, but I hemorrhaged. I had a constant, light stream of blood that kept coming. I just wanted to let you know that I had emergency repair in the ER (cauterizing and sutures) but the only way I finally healed was to take it really easy. I think I stayed off my feet for five days. Even then, I spotted for weeks. I hope things start to get better for you now.
