After a LEEP procedure, how soon can you take a bath or a jacuzzi and how soon can you begin exercise such as biking, eliptical, lifting weights?

It is best to wait anywhere from 2-4 weeks after the Leep has been done. As doing anything like sex, bath tub or Jacuzzi can cause water etc to enter the vaginal area and could cause an infection. As far as regular activity such as biking etc. As soon as you feel up to it you can. Which in most cases is anywhere from 7 to 12 days. If you start to have severe cramping or your bleeding increases, then do take that as a sign you are doing too much too soon. Most often around 3 weeks after, you should have a follow up with your doctor, and at this point, they will generally clear you for resuming your normal activities as well.
