discharge/spotting 3 months after LEEP Procedure very worried please help

New to the board.  I am 33 yrs. old with a 4yr old and  I had a LEEP Procedure done April 26th, was diagnosed with Cervical Dsyplasia & High Risk HPV.  Results came back from LEEP stating that there was no cancerous cells and that they removed all abnormal cells which were located at the six & nine o'clock angle.  I have not had a normal period, I also have expereinced spotting , now brownish thick discharge.  I have mestural like cramps in the morning but fine through out the afternoon.  I spoke to my gyno twice and she shaid to keep an eye on it for another two weeks.  I went back for both post -op and sah stated that I was healing very well but it was very uncomfortable when she was doing the exam.  My concern is, is there something going on that the doctors are not catching that is causing me to still have spotting and discharge talmost three months later.  This spotting and discharge started June 3rd and last week I went two days without it happening , had sex once and it strated back up  but this time it is dark brown and thick no smell at all.  Is this normal to have, or has anyone else had the same problem.  I am very worried...

Hi

 

I just had this procedure done a week ago and just got my actual period like 2 days ago, so I have only experienced a watery yellow discharge. I DID hear that it is normal to get this thick brown discharge. I am not so sure about 3 months later but everyone heals differently and my best guess is if your having sex regularly now it may just be irritating your cervix which had just undergone a procedure. I saw someone else's post saying that after they have sex they get a dark brown discharge also so its probably normal. Plus if your doctor examined you after noticing this and seen that you were healing well it is probably normal.

 

If your taking any birth controls or anything you may want to ask your doctor if that could be affecting it or using condoms with lubricants and spermicides may be irritating. Just things to think about.

 

Hope this helped a bit.

I have the same problem.  I had the LEEP procedure done in aug and ever since then my periods have been all screwed up.  I'll get it for the normal 5 days and then when i think its over, i'll have this very dark almost black clotty discharge.  No cramps. Just a black disgusting discharge. That will occur for about another week or so.  I went to my gynecologist about it and he checked my cervix to see if I was healing properly and I was.  But when I mentioned what I was experiencing, he didnt seem concerned and asked me if I'd consider going on birth control.  I am not a big fan of BC so he told me that I can take the Nuva ring and it would regulate my periods just like the pill would.  So I tried it. and after 2 days, I couldnt wait to get it out of me.  It made me soo sick and I actually blacked out from it and it gave me massive headache.  But when I took the ring out of me, this dark clumpy stuff came out with it.  I honestly had no idea what that was.  I dont know what to do because the doctors seem to think im healing ok but i havent had any problems before my leep procedure.  After i had it done, ive been having problems with my menstrual cycle ever since.  If anyone has ever gone through this or knows what this is and what to do, please let me know.  Ive been to the doctor already and didnt get many answers there.

So I see I'm not the only one experiencing this blackish discharge. I've had my Leep almost two months ago and now this is happening. A little worries & thinking of going to my gyn for a check up.. When I went for my ck up after the Leep dr said everything was fine and I was healing. Just don't understand this now. I actually haven't had sex since just because I want to be fully healed. Any physicians or anyone else out there with suggestions :-/

Hi mm2013, I had a leep last November and am still experiencing this. To help, my Gyno put me on birth control...but my husband and I want to start having children (or trying!!) so I went off. This is the first full month I'm off of the pills, and the discharge came right back. my dr. Says nothing is wrong and I didn't give the oils a long enough chance, but I know my body. I too would love a physicians take on this...please let me know if you hear anything or if it goes away for you.
