I was fine during the LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure), however when I stood up it felt like a hot poker went up through me. I had to take baby steps and have my husband assist me in getting to the car. I was given prescription medicine for pain, which I needed for about 24 hours. I hope I never have to go through that again.

I just wanted to know about the bleeding after LEEP.

I wasn’t numb enough and felt everything during the LEEP procedure.
