Cervical erosion/ectropian

I wonder if anyone has any experience of this?
In 2014 (roughly) I was diagnosed with cervical erosion after having painful sex for a period of time. I had it cauterised at the time which unfortunately didn't help but it did remove the cells.

After having my two DC, sex finally became enjoyable again, and in January I had the mirena fitted. It took a little while for my cycle to resettle but it did eventually. However, I've begun to bleed after sex again which is so disheartening after a few years of it being almost unbearable.

Does anyone know if it's possible for ectropian to reform after cauterisation? I do have a doctor's appointment the week after next for an issue with my thyroid, so I will mention it to her then, but I'd be so appreciative of any input anybody can give me

I suffered for years with this, began when I was about 20, went to the doctors and was fobbed off. Then finally at the age of 26, i went back and asked for a female doctor and she detected cervical erosion. I was referred to a gynaecologist who ended up carrying out a procedure were the erosion is frozen, no painful, just an odd feeling! Did work but a year later it returned and they changed my pill and since then it has been okay. Definitely worth chasing up with your GP, you shouldn’t have to leave with it!
