I had my LEEP done a few days shy of 4 weeks ago. I had a few bumps in the road due to heavy bleeding around my usual cycle time- but other then that I have been doing great! Had a follow up last week and was told things looked excellent recovery wise.
However, I’m going to be giving my gyno a call tomorrow to see about going in to get a swab for possible BV. I’ve never had BV (that I’m aware of) but know it is extremely common and have heard of it being pretty common after a LEEP as well as your good bacteria can get thrown out of whack during the procedure. Not to mention my gyno put me on birth control pills for a few months to help with the bleeding I was experiencing during my early recovery and maybe this is contributing to it as well?
Has anyone experienced this before? I’m having mild discharge that is more “watery” but I know that could be considered normal for recovery. But I’ve noticed an off smell the last few days or so? Sorry if TMI I don’t think it’s the typical “infection” most worry about in early recovery as I’m further along and also was checked a week ago and was told it looked great. The mild smell is what most describe during BV though. Any similar experiences?
