Menstrual cycle heavier after a colposcopy

I had a colposcopy done 10/6/14.Everything that was expected was normal after.A week later I started my period.It is normal for me to have heavy bleeding the first day and then calm down the next 4 days.I have been HEAVILY bleeding for 2 days with the worst cramps! I've never needed to take a pain reliever for cramps. Now I do.Will my periods ever get back to normal?

Thank you for asking

first days of menses are heavier any ways due to early sloughing. Painful menses though need a little medical care. Boiled vegetables, Slight antispasmodics or NSAIDs and avoid oily food in menses helps.

Its primary dysmenorrhea and ir is considered good for fertility. it relieves with pregnancy.

You are good. Nothing is wrong here. just treat the symptoms when you feel the pain. Stay protected to avoid Genital infections.

take care
