Colposcopy and Cervical Biopsy - Procedure that is Followed

Colposcopy and Cervical Biopsy - Procedure that is Followed

Colposcopy is a procedure that is used to get a closer view of a women’s cervix, vagina and vulva. It is a procedure carried on to detect the presence of any abnormal cells on the cervix and nearby areas. 

Why is Colposcopy done?
This procedure is carried out to see the problems in the vagina and cervix which may otherwise be not visible with a naked eye. A colposcopy is done when the Pap test results are abnormal. These abnormalities could be due to several reasons like viral infections namely human papillomavirus (HPV) infection or any other fungal (yeast), bacterial or protozoan (Trichomonas) infection. Atrophic vaginitis or natural cervical changes due to menopause can also lead to abnormal Pap test results. However one needs to be careful because these untreated cervical cell changes that lead to abnormal Pap tests can at times develop into precancerous or cancerous changes.

Cervical Biopsy
In case during colposcopy, an abnormal tissue is found in the problem areas, the doctor will remove a tiny sample of it and send it to the lab. This is normally known as a biopsy or cervical biopsy which is done from inside the opening of the cervix or endocervical canal.
 

Procedure for a colposcopy and biopsy
A colposcopy is normally a pain free procedure where at times some women might feel a slight tingling or burning sensation when the solution is applied. Biopsy might lead to a little discomfort like that of a sharp pinch or a menstrual cramp. During colposcopy a speculum or a small instrument is inserted into the vagina to spread apart the vaginal walls. In order to see the area more clearly the doctor dabs the cervix or vagina with a cotton swab dipped in vinegar (acetic acid) or Iodine (Lugol's solution). The solution is used to remove any kind of mucus and also makes the abnormal cells turn white in order to be clearly visible.

The doctor then uses a colposcope, a light magnifying device that looks like binoculars and has a bright light mounted to it. It also has a camera attached to it to take the videos or pictures of the cervix and vagina.
Biopsies are normally done by scraping away abnormal cells with a small brush or a small curette.

Results of colposcopy or cervical Biopsy
In case of Normal results the vinegar or iodine will not show the presence of any abnormal cells and the vagina and cervix look normal. But in case of abnormal results, there are abnormal tissues seen in the problem areas. It could also be a sore or a genital wart or infection in and around the vagina. The biopsy report would clarify whether it is cervical cancer or is likely to develop. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist and ask a free question.

Premature Birth likely for Short Women

Premature Birth likely for Short Women

Short mothers are twice as likely to have a premature baby than taller mothers an international study found.The chance of having a premature baby increases as the mother's height decreases say, researchers.

However, the reason behind this is unsure.But one study says short mothers tend to have less space for the babies to grow before birth.and this seems to lead to premature delivery in some women.

Remember there are some tabs which help to regularize period but they don't help in fact prevent pregnancy. So if you are ready to have baby now tell your gynaecologist so with focus on that treatment is given. Thyroid is another problem which need to be treated properly, check its level again to confirm proper dose. You need to meet gynaecologist only to regularize periods but for planning pregnancy you will have to consult many times in a month.

take steam inhalation,,will help you after you have rubbed Vicks on your neck and around nostrils. Ginger pepper tea also gives relief. Having besan ka seera ...thin soup like made by mixing pure ghee and besan and sipping it also dries the sinuses and helps in relieving cold.

Hello, I have been taking iron supplements as prescribed since many days. Nowadays, I feel frequent fatigue & my CBC reports usually show low HB & low MCV. Everytime I visit a doctor, they give me medicines for iron & folic acid, I feel good for 1-2 days n then its same again. I get swelling at ankles & wrists n doctors say its because of anaemia & improper blood circulation. Now sometimes I find it too difficult too walk, legs keep aching severely. With a 5 minute walk, I feel exhausted, short of breath. Things feel better when I stay lying on bed for a long time. Can you please help?
