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?
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.
