Leep procedure is done because your pap smear is abnormal or for cervical dysphasia.
What happens during the LEEP procedure?
The LEEP procedure takes about 20-30 minutes and is usually performed in your gynaecologists office. In some ways it may seem much like a normal pelvic exam because you will lie on the exam table with your feet in the stirrups. A colposcope will be used to guide your doctor to the abnormal area. Unlike a normal colposcopy, a tube will be attached to the speculum to remove the small amount of smoke caused by the procedure.
LEEP uses a thin wire loop electrode which is attached to an electrosurgical generator. The generator transmits a painless electrical current that quickly cuts away the affected cervical tissue in the immediate area of the loop wire. This causes the abnormal cells to rapidly heat and burst, and separates the tissue as the loop wire moves through the cervix.
We send the excised tissue to the path lab for further evaluation which insures that the lesion was completely removed, as well as allowing for a more accurate assessment of the abnormal area.
Always follow your doctors instructions for preparation for the LEEP.
Are there any complications associated with the LEEP?
Complications are usually mild but can include:
mild pain or discomfort / slight bleeding
If you experience bleeding that is heavier than a normal period, or if pain is severe contact the doctor. Other symptoms that should be reported to your physician include any heavy vaginal discharge or strong vaginal odor.
After the LEEP you should not Have sexual intercourse for as long as recommended by your doctor. Lift heavy objects, Use tampons, Douche, Take showers only to prevent infection.
It's important for you to remember that having cervical dysplasia does not mean that you have cervical cancer. However, treatment of the abnormal area is imperative to prevent abnormal cervical cells from developing into cervical cancer
