Does this sound normal - post LLETZ bleeding 5 weeks on

I had LLETZ treatment 5 weeks ago. My period started just after the treatment and then I had spotting. For maybe 5 days I had no bleeding or spotting but since then I've spotted/bled ever since. For the past two weeks I've had a light flow of bleeding. My period has been due but I don't really know whether I've had it or not as I've been bleeding for so long. I've not had heavy bleeding but if I have had my period it would make sense that it's lighter than normal as I've obvioulsy been bleeding for longer than normal.

Tonight I had a bit of pain - period type pains. I asked my Husband to get me a heatpack and as he did that I went to the toilet. As soon as I sat down I passed quite a large blood clot. I went to the toilet again about 15 minutes later and passed another clot (smaller this time).

I don't know whether this is normal or not.

Sorry for the TMI

Hey, I bled for about 6 weeks. I had 2 infections, and stopped bleeding after the antibiotics kicked in. Maybe worth having swabs at the docs? Try not to worry hun xxx

Hi hun,
it would be good to give a hospital call where you had your LLETZ procedure done so they can advice you what to do. If it doesn't settle maybe it would be good to get into A&E so hopefully they will be able to help you then.
lots of love
