Hi Everyone!

I wrote about cup usage and cervical dysplasia a little while back. I went for a colposcopy and biopsy and the results were low grade on the pap and high grade (CIN2) on the biopsy. I'm not entirely sure why there were two different grades, but I'm currently looking into that.

Anyway, I might be going in for a LEEP surgery in a month, after which I can't have intercourse or use anything internal for 6 weeks. I think I'm going to invest in some cute cloth pads to get me through the spotting and my next period, but when do you think it'll be safe to go back to my cup? I know they say you can start using internal products after 6 weeks, but I guess they're saying this with tampons in mind. Would it be any different due to the suction of the cup? Might that dislodge/disrupt the site of surgery?

Also, unrelated, but if anyone has any personal stories about this whole thing, please PM me. I'm super nervous and would love to hear about your experiences.

Thanks everyone!

New moms usually go back to a cup as soon as the doc tells them sexual intercourse is ok again. But in the case of surgery, I would say certainly the doctor should also be the one to call the shots on that one. If he/she says everything looks good, and you're not feeling major discomfort, then it should be fine.
