Colposcopy in Denver

A colposcopy is a clinical test to evaluate an abnormal Pap test. When a Pap test shows abnormal cells, a colposcopy can be a more definitive test to evaluate cervical dysplasia (abnormal cells occurring on your cervix). A colposcopy allows your physician to evaluate the entire cervix by direct visualization, whereas a Pap smear only looks at a sample of cervical cells.

At the Women's Health Group, we use colposcopy to learn more about your pelvic health and deliver the treatment you need.

Why Is Colposcopy Used?

A colposcopy is a useful tool for detecting and evaluating abnormalities in the cervix, vagina, and vulva. It can help healthcare providers identify problems early on and recommend appropriate treatment. We use colposcopy to:
Evaluate Pap test abnormalities
Assess abnormal bleeding or discharge
Detect cervical inflammation
Diagnose genital warts

What to Expect During a Colposcopy

The idea of a colposcopy may make you nervous. We are here to guide you through the process so you know what to expect.

For a colposcopy, we use an instrument called a colposcope, which allows the doctor to examine the cervix, vulva, and vagina. The colposcope is a magnifying instrument with a light on the end, which is used to illuminate the area being examined.

During the procedure, the doctor will look for any abnormal areas, such as areas of abnormal cells or abnormal blood vessels. They may also take a sample of tissue (biopsy) for further testing.

After a Colposcopy

After a colposcopy, you may experience some mild discomfort, such as cramping or a feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen. It is also normal to have some vaginal bleeding or discharge for a few days after the procedure.

It is important to follow any instructions given by your healthcare provider after the colposcopy. This may include taking pain medication as prescribed and avoiding sexual activity or inserting anything into the vagina for a specified period of time. If you have any questions or concerns about your recovery, we encourage you to reach out to us.

What is the purpose of a colposcopy?
A colposcopy is performed to examine the cervix, vagina, and vulva for abnormalities or infections. It may be recommended if a Pap smear or other screening test indicates the presence of abnormal cells or if the healthcare provider notices any unusual symptoms during a pelvic exam.
Is a colposcopy painful?
Most people do not experience pain during a colposcopy. However, some people may feel slight discomfort or pressure. The procedure usually takes only a few minutes and is generally well tolerated.
What should I expect during a colposcopy?
During a colposcopy, the healthcare provider will ask you to lie on your back on an exam table with your feet in stirrups. The provider will insert a speculum into your vagina to hold it open and allow for visualization of the cervix. The provider will then use the colposcope to examine the cervix, vagina, and vulva. You may feel some pressure or discomfort during the exam, but it should not be painful.
Are there any risks or complications associated with colposcopy?
Colposcopy is generally a safe and well-tolerated procedure. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks and potential complications, including bleeding, infection, and damage to the cervix. These complications are rare and can usually be treated effectively if they do occur.
Will I need to follow any special instructions after a colposcopy?
You may be advised to avoid sexual activity, tampon use, and douching for a few days following a colposcopy. You should also follow any other instructions given by your healthcare provider, such as taking prescribed medications or returning for follow-up exams.
