Menstrual Bleeding After The Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP)?
Tonight, I was on August 1 yesterday doing a leep after the discharge came out, on the 8th August I was the doctor’s control and that day was told by the doctor that today I entered my menstrual date, since that date I started menstruating, but until today how come it’s still bleeding huh …? Is this reasonable?
Hello, thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com.
LEEP, which stands for Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure, is one of the medical procedures in the womb and midwifery field that can be used as a diagnostic diagnosis procedure and can also be used as a treatment for certain conditions. Generally this procedure is carried out if there is doubt or uncertainty on the results of previous pre-cancer examinations, for example, pap smears for example. This procedure has a lower risk of bleeding, but each medical procedure still has its own risk.
After the LEEP procedure is performed, the patient may experience spotting to mild bleeding up to 21 days after the procedure. therefore in general patients are advised not to have sexual relations in the time adjacent to the action, related to the injury in the cervix that still requires time to recover.
For the time being, exercise close supervision of the amount of bleeding that occurs to you. if bleeding occurs massively or continuously for more than 21 days after the procedure, it is better for you to be able to immediately carry out medical control to a doctor who has previously treated you and has understood the history and conditions that occur in you.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
