Bleeding 3 weeks after Lletz procedure

Really need some advice. Had LLETZ 3 weeks ago, had usual discharge but a few days ago I started bleeding and it hasn’t stopped. Has this happened to anyone else and what was the outcome? The hospital have told me to call back tomorrow if not stopped. I’m worried sick

How heavy is your bleeding? Some bleeding can be normal but if it’s heavy (soaking a pad in an hour) or there are large clots you should get it checked. I had this (clots bigger than my palm) after my LLETZ and it was an infection. I needed a general anaesthetic for a procedure to stop the bleeding and antibiotics. It’s good you’re in touch with the hospital as they will be able to advise you.

Thanks for replying. It’s not uncontrollable blood loss. No clots either. I’ve spoken to the hospital again and they’ve said its completely normal. I’ll obviously call 111 if it got really heavy.
