Couldn't find what you looking for?


I had a leep procedure in 11.17.14 and am still battling an odor smell. Is this common? Also, I had severe bleeding two weeks after the procedure where I was changing a pad every 25 minutes. I had to get recauterized; two weeks later same thing happened with the bleeding which I assumed was my period, but it was severe for 5 days. I went back again to my doc and he said procedure looked like it was healing well. However I continue to bright red spotting and have bad odor. Any suggestions? Odor recommendations?


Hi twimbcm

Here is additional information for you.

  • Mild cramping may occur for several hours after the procedure.
  • A dark brown vaginal discharge during the first week is normal.
  • Vaginal discharge or spotting may occur for about 3 weeks.
  • Pads should be used instead of tampons for about 3 weeks.
  • Sexual intercourse should be avoided for about 3 weeks.
  • Douching should not be done.

Call your doctor now or seek immediate medical care if:

  • You have severe vaginal bleeding. You are passing clots of blood and soaking through your usual pads each hour for 2 or more hours.
  • You have pain that does not get better after you take pain medicine.
  • You have signs of infection, such as:
    • Increased pain.
    • Vaginal discharge that smells bad.
    • A fever.

    Seek the help of your healthcare provider if you have a fever accopanied with vaginal discharge that smells bad. Good luck
