Colposcopy Q & A

What is a colposcopy?

When do I need a colposcopy?

How do I get ready for a colposcopy?

You’ll typically schedule the procedure when you’re not menstruating. Your OB/GYN gives you specific prep instructions ahead of your colposcopy.

Guidelines generally include avoiding anything in your vagina, including tampons, medications, or douches, for a minimum of one full day in advance. You should refrain from sex for at least 24 hours ahead of your colposcopy. Your OB/GYN may recommend that you take an over-the-counter pain reliever shortly before your appointment to minimize discomfort.

Is there any downtime after a colposcopy?

In a standard colposcopy, there’s no downtime at all. You may experience light bleeding, similar to between-period spotting, for a day or two.

If you have a colposcopy with biopsy, you may experience pain and bleeding for one to two days, so you may need a day or so of recovery time.
