Hi all, and happy new year!
I’m new to the forum so forgive me if this has been asked before…
I had a colposcopy on 21st December which showed up a white area on the cervix so the nurse took a biopsy.
I remember she mentioned I bled quite a bit so she needed to use more silver nitrate than normal to stop the bleeding but other than that, all went fine and results are expected in 4-6 weeks.
I ended up spotting for 7 days afterwards, which apparently isn’t unusual, particularly in my case (having more silver nitrate up there) and things did eventually go back to normal.
Then 2 weeks later when the Mr and I were about to jet off on holiday to Thailand, I bled a bit after forcing a poop (sorry if tmi), and for the past 3 or 4 days I’ve been experiencing a dull aching sensation in my cervix. It’s not too painful, but noticeable and it comes and goes throughout each day.
Has anyone else experienced this?
I’m in Thailand now and another thing I’m unsure of is whether I can enjoy a dip in the pool or sea, as I remember the nurse saying to avoid baths until I was back to normal. Since i’m still sore, I’m worried swimming might make matters worse and cause an infection. Something I want to avoid, especially while we’re here in Thailand.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated
