COLPOSCOPY

A colposcopy is a procedure used to examine the health of the cervix, vagina, vulva, and surrounding areas. Colposcopies help diagnose abnormal cervical concerns such as changes in the tissue or findings of HPV (human papillomavirus), abnormal Pap smear results, or other issues. The colposcopy can help your doctor determine the severity of the condition, in order to develop the best treatment plan.

During a colposcopy, a colposcope which is a magnifying lens and a special light, examine the cervix more closely than a routine pelvic exam. The colposcopy can often provide more detailed information about any changes in the cervical cells that may indicate an abnormality or precancerous condition, enabling earlier detection.

While many patients naturally worry about discomfort during this procedure, colposcopies are generally quite tolerable. The sensation may vary depending on the individual, but mild cramping or pressure is often all that is felt during colposcopies.

While colposcopies are generally very safe, it is important to understand the recovery process. The most common side effect of colposcopy recovery is cramping or uncomfortable bloated feelings in the abdomen. A colposcopy procedure uses acetic acid and iodine on the affected area. Some mild soreness or stinging sensations may occur but should subside within 2-3 days of the procedure. After a colposcopy, patients should avoid sexual intercourse and tampon use for 5-7 days and avoid taking baths until medically approved.
