LEEP Procedure


We’re sure you have many questions regarding the procedure. We want you to feel comfortable and be well informed. Please feel free to call us at 718 369-1900 with any questions you may have. Below we have answered some frequently asked questions.

  • What Is LEEP?

    LEEP is a treatment for abnormal cells on the cervix. LEEP — short for loop electrosurgical excision procedure — removes abnormal tissue by cutting it away using a thin wire loop that carries an electrical current. It may be performed after abnormal cells are found during a Pap test, colposcopy, or biopsy.

  • How Effective Is LEEP?

    LEEP cures the problem about 90 percent of the time.

    If LEEP does not cure your problem, you may have LEEP again, or your health care provider may recommend another treatment.

  • How Does LEEP work?

    During the LEEP procedure, the health care provider usually looks through a colposcope to see your cervix more clearly.

    • You lie down on an exam table in the same position used to have a Pap test.
    • A speculum — a metal or plastic instrument — is inserted into your vagina to separate the walls.
    • A numbing medication is injected into your cervix.
    • A vinegar-like solution is applied to make the abnormal cells more visible.
    • The health care provider uses an electrical wire loop to remove the abnormal tissue. The tissue is sent to a lab to be tested.
    • Blood vessels on the area are sealed to prevent bleeding. The health care provider may also apply a special paste — Monsel’s Solution — to prevent bleeding.

  • Is LEEP Painful?

    No — most women do not feel any pain during the LEEP procedure because our Brooklyn gynecologist administers lidocaine to numb the cervix before the procedure. You may feel some pressure during this injection. Some women feel mild discomfort or cramping after the LEEP procedure, which takes about 10 minutes.

  • What Should I Do to Prepare for LEEP?

    Try to schedule the LEEP procedurefor shortly after the end of your period. This will give your cervix time to heal before you have your period again.

    Ask your health care provider if you should take an over-the-counter pain reliever about an hour before your procedure to reduce the chance of discomfort.

  • What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

    After the LEEP procedure, you may feel mild cramping for a day or so. If you’re uncomfortable, use oral pain relievers, such as acetaminophen (like Tylenol) or ibuprofen (like Advil).

    You probably will have a watery discharge for several weeks. It may be heavy and may be mixed with a little blood. There also may be some odor to the discharge. In addition to normal bathing, wash your labia (lips of the vulva) with plain water several times a day for a few days.

    Do not douche or use tampons for several weeks after having the LEEP procedure — talk with your health care provider about how long you should wait.

    Your health care provider will help you decide how long you should wait to have sex again. In general, women should wait
    3–4 weeks after having the LEEP procedure before having vaginal intercourse. This allows the cervix time to heal and reduces the risk of infection. You can enjoy other sex play that does not involve inserting anything into your vagina.

    Continue taking your medications as usual — including the birth control pill. You can also continue to use any other method of birth control.

  • Is LEEP Safe?

    Most women do not have any serious side effects after the LEEP procedure.

    Rare complications of LEEP include:

    • damage to other pelvic organs or the wall of the vagina
    • heavy bleeding
    • pelvic infection — particularly if you have sex before the cervix heals
    • reaction to local anesthesia

    You should call your health care provider if you have:

    • abdominal pain
    • fever or chills
    • vaginal discharge that smells very bad
    • heavy bleeding

    LEEP may increase the risk of preterm birth in future pregnancies. Talk with your health care provider if you plan on getting pregnant in the future.

    LEEP During Pregnancy

    Health care providers usually try to wait until after birth to treat a pregnant woman’s abnormal cervical cells. Delaying treatment is usually safe because it generally takes a long time for abnormal cervical cells to become cancerous.
