Hello,

After a colposcopy, you may have dark vaginal discharge for up to three days, and some bleeding for up to a week.

Your vagina may be sore, and you may experience mild cramping for 1 to 2 days. If no biopsy was taken, you may resume normal activity right away.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Blerina Pasho, General & Family Physician
