I've just got my referal appointment for the gynae clinic (in 6 weeks) due to cervical erosion. Has anyone got any experience of having this treated? Any ideas how long after my appointment I'd likely get the treatment, or whether they'd be able to do it there and then?
I saw a gynaecologist just the once after having been referred by my GP and he treated the erosion there and then. Treatment involved the erosion being cauterised which sounds a lot worse than it is. They use these little sticks of silver nitrate to cauterise, it takes about 5 minutes, smells like burning hair and is a bit achey for a day or two afterwards, a bit like period pains.
It's never bothered me since. IME it's nothing too worry about and is very effective.
I saw the GP this morning, and I booked my referral appointment straight after. I was worried that it would be another wait after seeing the gynae, but it sounds like it might be in that appointment if they feel it's necessary!
I really hope they do treat it, I've had it on and off for over 2 years andignoredit only complication is we've been ttc for 5 months (putting it on hold now until after appointment) but I hope they say I can still get treated even though I'm hoping to get pregnant as soon as possible afterwards.
I wouldn't have thought it would make much difference to TTC except you might be a bit sore for a few days so won't fancy DTD.
Coincidentally, I gave birth 8 days ago so having had an erosion and having the treatment didn't stop us from having another baby. It did take a while to get PG but i'm pretty sure that had nothing to do with the erosion.
