I had an abnormal pap 2 weeks ago so they wanted to do a biopsy...

Wednesday they did a biopsy of my cervix to make sure that there were no pre-cancerous cells. Well that was a little painful and very uncomfortable. Said I would see a little discharge of the stuff they put on my cervix to stp the bleeding but it is nothing to worry about. I saw this on Thursday. They also gave me a shot of Gardasail to help protect me from the HPV virus, although I am married I figured why insurance covered it 100% anyways...this left me unable to move my arm very much. Well the doctor precribed me a pill for a yeast infection also, which I took on Thursday. On Friday I had a brown on the last day of my period. I knew it was blood but it wasn't fresh...later on I got a heavy flow of blood and it hasn't stoped. I guess this is my period but it is a little weird. The first day of my last period was March can I be having it again this month? That never happens. I am always regular. Could they have brought my period on? Could that pill have anything to do with it? I am getting menstral like cramping but it is constant, it doesn't come and go like usual and the flow is more than usual. Is this normal after a cervix biopsy? I am a little freaked but trying to not worry about it. I have been VERY stressed lately which I suppose could bring it on too.

Some vaginal discharge and bleeding as you have described is normal for up to 1 week after a biopsy of the cervix. You should use sanitary napkins instead of tampons during this time. You should also avoid intercourse for a period of 1 week. If you develop heavy bleeding, a fever, or increased pelvic pain you should see a doctor.

Yep, it's normal. I think I had that for about 2 1/2 weeks off & on. Your doctor should have told you but mine didn't either. Actually his nurse had me sign something & should have had me read it, then given me a copy but she didn't. It's a good thing I read it myself when I saw it. You can take some Advil or Ibuprofen for the pain
