Customer Question

Hello! I had a colpo and biopsy yesterday and am wondering how long I need to abstain from sex. I havn't seen my boyfriend in over a month and am picking him up tonight. I am not bleeding and have only seen the iodine come out two times yesterday and once today. My doctor did not give me any restrictions at all.

Thanks for the question.

The usual wait is at least a week.

48 hours for culposcopy alone.

A week or more with biopsy.
