I m a little worried. I had a cervical biopsy two weeks ago. I didn t have any cramping or bleeding. The first week after the biopsy I had to wear pads due to watery discharge. The second week, I started my period, which was the usual time I get it every month but my flow has been heavy and instead of the usual 3-4 days I m now going on day 7 and I just had two huge clots oozing out. Not even on my heaviest period have I lost so much blood. I m also cramping now. Is this normal? When will my period stop?

I have had a pre-cancerous cells located on my cervix, biopsy was done 11 days ago. The past 4 days I have had a lot of painful cramping, bleeding. Yesterday woke up and cramps much more intense and bleeding was heavier and it appears to be Clot like blood as well. Is this due to the biopsy? Should I seek out my GYN-oncologist right away?

Is it possible to mistake my period as bleeding from a cervicle biopsy? The bleeding occurred 24 hours after the biopsy and around the time my period should have started but I m also irregular. Day 43 and no period and negative on my pregnancy tests. We are trying to conceive so I don t want to miss my ovulation timeframe. My last period was 50 days apart.
