A week and a half ago I had my cervix frozen, ever since then when I have a bowel movement I bleed really bad. The blood is bright red and is very heavy but goes away after a few minutes. I also have mild cramping. Why is this?

This would not be an expected complication of the procedure. Some women do have sensitive tissue in the vagina and the tiny blood vessels can be damaged with a bowel movement, especially a large and/or hard stool. If you do not find resolution with adding fiber to your diet (Metamucil, Citracel, etc.) and drinking lots of water, you should follow up with your doctor.
