Customer Question

I passed a fairly large amount of tissue while being on my period. I had a colostomy 10 days ago for an abnormal pap. It came back as just mild changes. I am on birth control pills and was taking my second pack without taking the week off to miss a period. My period started about 4 days after it would have if I had taken the inert pills. Should I be concerned?

Most likely the tissue is just from the colposcopy and nothing worrisome

That said, you should at least let your doctor know about this
