Had LLETZ for CIN 3 in early Feb. LMP probably about 3rd March. Got pregnancy symptoms early/mid March. 3 negative HPT's 1 week ago+, 1 negative blood test 1 week ago and now weird pink - brown & watery red discharge. No actual period as yet. This is not like my period at all.
Could it be: Pregnancy? Miscarriage? Post LLETZ problem? Something else?

If brown discharge is old blood, why would I have it after not having a period for so long?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms do suggest possibility of pregnancy. You can expect to get pregnant after LLETZ procedure is done. You can consider repeating serum HCG levels done along with a thorough examination to confirm the pregnancy related changes in body (breast, vaginal and cervical changes). If you are having bleeding that is heavy and accompanied by cramps and clots, then chances of early miscarriage cannot be ruled out. After the LLETZ procedure you are not supposed to have intercourse, douche, use tampons, or lift anything heavy for atleast 3 weeks. Consider getting a follow-up examination done by your treating gynecologist to rule out possibility of bleeding from the LLETZ site.
Take care.
