I had a LEEP 3 weeks ago, the frist few days afterward I had normal discharge. Then I got my period, i didn't have pads so I used tampons til I got the other, period was normal, but the since then I've been spotting. I saw my doctor this past tuesday and he said everything looked normal. Then I had a pinkish discharge for the last two days. This morning it looks as if I"ve gotten my period again! Is this normal? How much longer is this going to go on?! If this matters, I've had 3 colopscopies in the past 2 years have never had this reaction from those procedures.

A LEEP is more invasive than a colopscopy, as this procedures actually cuts and removes tissue through the surface of your cervix.
After the LEEP you should not: For at least 4 weeks
Have sexual intercourse unless otherwise specified as long as recommended by your physician
Lift heavy objects
Take tub baths--take showers only to prevent infection
Thank You and Good Luck
