Hi, I have had a colposcopy where there was just one area she took a biopsy for. My question is - I've had a small amount if bleeding the days prior - so had been using tampons - and kiterslly just removed one about 10 mins prior to my colposcopy. I have just read somewhere that you should not use them for 24 hrs before colposcopy - why is this? How can it affect the procedure? Worried she might have missed something because I have done this?!?!
