WHAT TO KNOW AFTER FOLLOW-UP PROCEDURE
Your healthcare provider will inform you about your lab test results and advise next follow up (if needed).
You may have a little spotting for a few days or some period cramps. You may also have brown discharge which is part of the healing process and can take up to 4 weeks. Otherwise, you can return to your normal daily activities.
It is normal for a patient to have acidic/sour odor for a few days after the procedure. They may have the discharge for up to 2 weeks. But, if the discharge has a smelly or fishy odor, you probably have an infection and need to see the doctor to be treated for the same.
For a month, please do not insert anything into the vagina so the cervix can heal. Hence, please:
- Do not have sex
- Do not use tampons
- Do not douche
- Do not swim/do water activities
Call your healthcare provider right away if you have any of these symptoms:
- Heavy vaginal bleeding (using more than one sanitary pad per hour)
- Severe lower abdominal pain
- Foul smelling discharge from vagina
