Colposcopy is the examination of the cervix using a colposcope.  The procedure is not painful, but may be slightly uncomfortable, similar to having a pap smear.  We may also take a biopsy (small piece of tissue) from the cervix or vagina.

You may experience some bleeding or discharge particularly if you have undergone a biopsy. You will be advised about after care by our team.
