This is my first post - apologies if this has already been asked but I tried to use the search and it didn't really answer my question! I'm really pleased I've come across this website as it has been quite frightening receiving the letter and having to go to have a colposcopy. But it is comforting to know we are all not alone! :)
Anyhow, my question is:
I had a colposcopy and punch biopsy (x2) on the 27th July (11 days ago). I had no bleeding, just discharge for about 5 days. The only other symptom I had was feeling very nauseous (belugh :()
I had a bath 5 days after and have been having them since with no problems. I am going on holiday next week and was just wondering if I should risk taking a swim? Also, I will be seeing my boyfriend this weekend before I go away but I am unsure whether to risk having intercourse?
How long did you wait to bath/swim/have sex? Did you wait for the bleeding and discharge to stop, or follow the doctor's guidelines of 2-3 weeks?
Any advice would be very much appreciated! :)
