I am just wondering whether anyone can shed any light on undergoing a LLETZ treatment whilst on your period?
After finding out I have CIN 1 and 2 cells, my LLETZ loop diathermy procedure has been booked for the 12th January. However, I am due to start my period on Friday 9th January. My period usually only lasts 3-4 days but I am concerned I will be turned away from treatment if I am on my period... even if it is very light! Has anyone had any experience with this? I could always do my pill back-to-back but like to avoid this if possible as I get very emotional!
I am also having the procedure under general anasthetic as I had a bit of an ordeal at my colposcopy appointment (ended up passing out and throwing up so the consultant agreed I woudl be better having the procedure under GA) - I don't know if this makes a difference also?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

* December 2014 - Results showed CIN 1 and 2. Consultant has referred me to undergo LLETZ treatement on the 12th January.
