Colposcopy / Cryosurgery / LEEP Procedures
Colposcopy is a brief, but thorough and detailed microscopic sampling of the abnormal cells on your cervix. This takes just a couple of minutes longer than a regular PAP test. I use a numbing gel on your cervix to make you as comfortable as possible..I also recommend you eat regularly before the visit, take 2 Advil, and bring your IPOD /headphones for distraction/relaxation.
Treatment regimens-include cryosurgery (a light freezing of mild dysplasia) and sometimes LEEP—a more in depth removal method of a small part of the cervix with a loop electrode (for moderate to severe dysplasia).
SUGGESTION !!: Again—I encourage you not to worry—abnormal PAPs are simply treated; easy to follow and our office will be happy to explain results and options clearly. You will have time to ask questions and understand when to return to the office as well as your normal activities. We encourage you to take good care of your female health.
