Done colposcopy. Taking Yasmin. Can colposcopy delay periods even when on the pill?

Hi, I had to go for a colposcopy on 8 days ago where he told me there was no cancer but he had to do a biopsy to check for virus. I am on the contraceptive pill Yasmine and came off it on Saturday (that being my last day). I still have no sign of my breakthrough bleed but am definitely not pregnant. Can colposcopy delay periods even when in the pill? I bled a little after the biopsy but think that was just the wound so to speak. Thanks

Hi, welcome to HCM,

Colposcopy does not delay the period even when you are on pill.
So, I think there is no chance of delay due to biopsy.
As you are on pill, it is very unnatural to get pregnant..
So, wait for some days, I think the period will occur itself.

Thats all.
