I had silver nitrate treatment to a cervical ectropian on Tuesday. I was having a biopsy as I had had an episode of abnormal very heavy bleeding 3 months ago but that had all settled. However my nhs referral had taken this long to come through and she said she wanted to do a biopsy just to check all ok because of my age (46) etc. However whilst in the stirrups she treated the ectropian I knew Ialready had with silver nitrate without asking me?! I've chosen not to have this treated before as I've been told by two specialists it was only a small ectrpion and not the cause of the above bleed. The biopsy was incredibly painful and although I asked if it would make me bleed at all( she said no) by the time I got back to work I was doubled over in pain and having a bloody discharge.
4 days later and I'm still losing blood - more of a heavy pink/sometimes red discharge. Any advice as to how long this will last. Was given no aftercare , been to gp who says hopefully will sort itself out soon and having looked at guys hospital online leaflet says all should be ok after about a week after silver nitrate? Including intercourse.
4 week recovery only for other types of cautery?
Just looking for any help / advice from people who've had this done as feeling pretty anxious - so far doesn't seem to be stopping?
