What is colposcopy?

Colposcopy is a procedure in which a special magnifying instrument called a colposcope is used to look into the vagina and into the cervix.

The purpose of the colposcopy is to identify abnormal cells which may be pre-malignant, so that they can be treated before they progress to cancer.

The colposcope gives an enlarged view of the outer portion of the cervix.

The colposcopy will be done by a specialist gynaecologist who has had special training to identify different problems which may affect the cervix.

Why would a colposcopy be necessary?

A colposcopy is an examination of your cervix using a special type of microscope called a colposcope.

If the Pap Smear shows abnormalities , then depending on the specific test result, you may need to have a colposcopy

 Further, it may be done to assess problems such as genital warts on the cervix, inflammation of the cervix, benign growths or polyps, pain and bleeding.

How is the procedure done?

A colposcopy involves the gynaecologist using a speculum to look at your cervix under magnification.During a colposcopy, you will lie on your back with feet raised just as you do when you have a regular pelvic exam. The doctor uses an instrument called a speculum to hold the walls of the vagina apart.
Then the colposcope is placed at the opening of your vagina. A mild solution may be applied to the vagina and cervix with a cotton swab. This may sting slightly, but is not painful.
 The  mild solution changes the appearance of the skin which covers the cervix, thus enabling the identification of potentially abnormal cells. Your doctor may need to do a biopsy.
This involves taking a tiny piece of skin hich is sent for testing. You may feel a mild pinch or cramp while the biopsy sample is taken. The tissue is then sent to a laboratory for further study.

After the colposcopy procedure

After the colposcopy, you may have some minor discomfort, but shouldn’t need anything stronger than a couple of painkiller. If a sample of tissue was taken from your cervix  biopsy , the laboratory results should be ready in 3- 5 working days and we will talk about what I found during the examination, and go through all your questions.

Most women feel fine after colposcopy. You may feel a little lightheaded and if you had a biopsy, you may have some mild bleeding.

Risks of colposcopy

There may be a risk of infection when you have a colposcopy. Mild pain and cramping during the procedure and mild bleeding afterwards are common. This most often happens when a biopsy is done. If there is heavy bleeding, fever, or severe pain after the procedure, contact your gynaecologist immediately.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) testing and Colposcopy

HPV is a sexually transmitted infection that causes genital warts, abnormal cervical cells or cervical cancer.

HPV test is a screening test indicated in women above 30 years of age and for those who show an abnormal Pap test. A sample of your cervical cells is scraped and collected using a soft brush and a tiny spatula, and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

 Depending on the results, appropriate treatment or colposcopy appointment is given.
