I had a colposcopy, and biopsy, on February 11, nothing found. Now, I am 3 or 4 days late for AF. I have read a lot of people's questions online that have the same question I do... Can this procedure make AF late? Some general public answered on various sites stating that they were late after the procedure. The medical professionals all say that's not possible. Does anyone have experience with this? I have taken 3 tests, all are negative. We were actually trying to prevent during the time I should have O'd. I want to wait until my first cycle after I get married in May. I suppose there could have been an oops, but the tests are showing negative. Any advice out there? Real life experience would be great!
I think it is possible that you are just late because of the procedure - not because of what it was but just the general stresses of the procedure and everything else you have been going through. Stress can really mess with your cycle a lot. Anything is possible but if you were trying to prevent and you are still seeing negative tests after AF was due then I am thinking you may just be having a wonky cycle. But of course if AF doesn't show I would test again in a week or call the doc.
I had a leep and it messed my body up for 1.5 years!!!!! Migraines all the time, horrible acne out of nowhere, crazy periods, emotional hormone episodes - it was a nightmare. Drs kept saying my leep had nothing to do with it but so many other women online had the same experience, so I just ignore the drs - they only know what they are taught. I don't think the procedure caused my issues, but the trauma of the procedure - I was put under twilight sedation and felt EVERYTHING - it was horrible and terrifying. I was two seconds away from having cervical cancer (severe cin 3) and luckily I have never had an abnormal pap or needed any other surgeries since.
So after my long winded story (lol) I definitely think that a biopsy/colposcopy can make your period late. I had one too but I don't remember what happened after that since my periods tend to be a little strange as is.
I'm sorry, I forgot to unclick my signature box I hate that.
