User :   i just had one on Feb. 26th
Doctor :   Ok, do you have pain during intercourse?

User :   about 8 months ago
User :   i go for another gyno appointment on March 21st
Doctor :   Did the doctor say anything in particular about your general health?
User :   he said i was perfectly fine
Doctor :   great
User :   i had a LEEP procedure about 2 years ago
Doctor :   After listening to your symptom of spotting, I am not worried of anything alarming
Doctor :   As you said, it was just a spotting, it could be a minor abrasion during the sexual intercourrse
User :   so pretty much like a broken blood vessel near my cervix because my cervix are very thin ever since the LEEP procedure
Doctor :   Absolutely
Doctor :  
I was about to say
Doctor :   LEEP makes the cervix thin and the blood vessels do run across
User :   well they took about half of my cervix and i hate to say this but me and my husband have had intercourse almost everyday for almost the past week
User :   so i am thinking a break to heal this would work
User :   because it did hurt when he first went inside this afternoon
Doctor :   Ok, avoid penetrative intercourse for couple of days
Doctor :   and it should heal
User :   thank you so very much i am a person that worries about everything since they found the cancerous cells 2 years ago
Doctor :   They may not be cancerous cells, they are just precancerous
User :   well that is good to know then
Doctor :   so the procedure called LEEP is done to remove and test
Doctor :   The next thing you should remember is regular gynecological exam and pap smears annually
User :   because the opening to the vagina as in where the inner and outer lips are, are sore to the touch right now so i thought it was of course from too much intercourse recently
User :   yes i plan on calling on monday to schedule a pap and pelvic since i accidently scheduled it for around my next period
Doctor :   Ok good, I hope you can comfortably
Doctor :   take it forward from here
Doctor :   with your Gyno
User :   thank you so very much for all the help
User :   i really appreciate it
Doctor :   Bye for now
