This is my first post as I can't find the answers I'm looking for! I have read threads previously and got so much support and reassurance from these during a scary time!
So.....I had CIN 3 in November 2010 and had LLETZ treatment, annual smears normal since then :-)
However, since the LLETZ I've been back and forth to my GP and gynaecologist due to irregular bleeding and post-coital bleeding. I have had blood tests and ultrasounds which were all normal and I was finally referred back to colposcopy clinic a couple of months ago due to an ectropian (was so relieved as the Gynae registrar thought it was a sinister looking polyp)! I went back to colposcopy clinic on Thursday for diathermy. I asked questions but wasn't given any written advice. The verbal advice I was given seems to contradict things I've read online (but this all seems to talk about diathermy after LLETZ and not just as a procedure alone).
Has anyone else had this treatment? How long before I can soak in the bath, go to the gym, swim, have intercourse, use tampons etc......? The nurse said 1-2 weeks but I've read on some sites to wait 6 weeks! I don't want to undo the treatment and be back to square one but also don't want to avoid these things unnecessarily!
Hope someone can shed some light!
