Colposcopy affect period?

7 replies

LJP86 · 14/11/2011 20:38

I came off of Microgynom in September this year - having been on it for seven and a half years. I had a period exactly a month later, it lasted five days and all seemed fine. On the 24th of October I had a colposcopy examination in hospital during which I had a punch biopsy taken. My period was due (if I go by my one in October) exactly a week ago but it has not shown. I have had period pain for over a week, did a pregnancy test on Saturday which was negative - I was 5 days late on Saturday. I am now wondering whether the colposcopy has affected my period has anyone else experiened this? Also, any advice on when or if I should go to the Doctor, could I be pregnant? I have brought some more pregnancy tests and was going to do them in the next few days. I don't feel any different in myself however but have never been pregnant before. Not sure if maybe my body is just settling down still as well after coming off the pill. Any advice or experience greatly appreciated!

think you may be pregnant. no reason why colposcopy would have affected your cycle. Get testing!

Hmmm ok, not sure when is best to test. Am now technically a week late, but Oct was my first 'proper' period in seven and half years. Might leave another few days before do another test. Then not sure how long to leave before going to doctor, say if I don't have a period in Nov at all but home preg tests all negative

Maybe your body is just settling down from coming off pill.

I thought colposcopy does nothing more than possibly cause a little bleeding afterwards.I don't think it affects your cycle.

Do one first thing tomorrow! Grin

You're meant to be really fertile when you first come off the pill.

I am a bit torn all round really! Part of me gets excited maybe I'm pregnant but haven't had any sickness, boobs feel no different. Just what feels like period pain, maybe bit of nausea. Prob wait until maybe Friday to do any more tests? What does anyone think?

I had little bit of bleeding after colposcopy, within 5 days I was fine. Results from that back as just mild changes and smear in a year which is good!
