Resolved Question:

I underwent a cervical cauterization in January for cervical erosion, which was causing me problems. Everything was fine until last Thursday when I started getting light brown spotting. I am on Marvelon and its only been 2 weeks since my period. Today it is still light but is now red. Did the cautery not work? Why is this happneing?

I want to get some more detail information about your problem-

How long you are taking Marvelon?

How was bleeding since you had the cautery?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you.

I have been on Marvelon for about 2 years - before that I was on Dianette.

The bleeding took about 6 weeks to stop (I was told 4 is about usual) and it was quite heavy. I have not had any unusual bleeding since except for what I am experiencing now.

Thank you for the information.

The two most likely possibilities here is break through bleeding of pill & the recurrence of erosion.

As you are on Marvelon for 2 years now , breakthrow bleeding is less likely , though may occur.

You should have a check up by your gynecologist to assess the cervical erosion.

As after cautery it was heavy bleeding it should be checked again.
