bleeding two weeks after leep

I had the Leep about 2 weeks ago. My period came a few days after Leep and now my period seems like it's lasting longer. (over 7 days) How am I supposed to know if I'm still bleeding from the Leep or having a longer period. I just want to make sure I don't have to go back to the doc to get cauterized or anything. It's not heavy bleeding. Thanks!


Hi Rainstorm, I didn't have the same as you but I didn't really bleed at all until 2 weeks after my LLETZ cone. I had some small spotting before that but really not much until the 2 weeks mark.

It is confussing to know the difference between period blood or bleeding from the treatment, I guess my bleeding was more clotty and dark. I was on the pill then so I knew when my period started and ended. If you're concerned or the bleeding increases I think it's best to go visit your doctor. Trust your gut.
