Cervical Biopsy (TMI alert)!!!

OK, I had a biopsy on 2 different parts of the cervix plus a smear today. Right, you have been warned, TMI. My appointment was at 9:45 this morning. Since I've came home I've had a lot of bleeding, similar to the first maybe 2 days of my normal period (which is quite heavy at first).

Apart from that.....can't believe I'm saying this.....I have been having big clots, about 1.5-2cm long. Am worried about this. And it looks different from the kind of clots I get when am on my period blush blush blush

Is it normal after a (double) biopsy?

Hmm, I would ring NHS direct tomorrow.
I get clots when am menstruating, not that big.
It could be par for the course, but best to ring and check, eh?

The advice post birth used to be to report any clots bigger than a 50p so I'd follow the same rule here I think. No harm in calling NHS direct now.

I had a single biopsy but didn't get anywhere near that much bleeding and no clots. I'd get back in touch with NHS direct and see what they say. Hope it's all ok though.

I physically feel totally fine (apart from in my head where I am worrying like mad). I was really shocked when I went to the loo earlier. Think I will see how things look in the morning and give NHS a call. I am the squeamishest person in the world so anything out of the ordinary for me is like shock [OMG]

Oh sweetness, that sounds really scary- I'd be freaking right out...can you ring the useless tossers NHS Direct now? Or get yourself to a walkin centre? It is more than likely you'll be fine by morning, but you wouldn't be making a fuss to get it checked out.

Thanks ladies smile

Have been better today, everything is much, ahem, lighter. I read a couple of things about it and apparently it is normal <yeuch> Am going to keep an eye on it in the next couple of days though and see how it goes, plus I feel scared reluctant to let anyone.....erm.....near there at the moment.

Thanks again smile

Hi Squeezy
Some clots and then smallish (<2cm approx) pieces of tissue after a few days is normal, more so if you've had a loop or possibly having had a couple of biopsies.
Is it possible that having the biopsies has started your period out of sync?
I guess they've said not to use tampons for a while either.
If it continues past the weekend then give the colposcopy unit a call for advice (hopefully they gave you a contact phone number) or your GP.
Here is the colposcopists' assocation website with their advice about post treatment.
