It is a process in which a small piece of tissue is removed from your cervix by using an instrument. Your doctor may use a dye to stain the cervix so that he can easily view the presence of abnormal cells.

How to Prepare For A Cervical Biopsy?

Your doctor can ask you to visit the outpatient department a week after the commencement of your menstrual cycle. The doctor will ask you to stop any medication that may interfere with the procedure.

You also have to avoid using medicated vaginal creams and tampons at least a day before the procedure. Also, avoid sexual intercourse before the procedure.

Some types of cervical biopsies need general anaesthesia. You have to stop eating or drinking anything for at least 10 hours if your doctor plans any such procedure for you.

On the scheduled appointment, your doctor may ask you to take a pain killer before starting the procedure. You also have to carry sanitary pads along with you as you will have light bleeding.

Bring a friend or a family member with you who can drive you back home because you may feel drowsy if general anaesthesia is given.

Your doctor will also ask you to limit your activity if you had a cone biopsy. It may take a few weeks until your cervix gets healed. You can resume your daily work and diet unless your physician tells you to avoid anything.
