Hi there, I’ve recently been undergoing cryotherapy for external genital warts in the perennial area. I’ve already had one bout of it and the following week was absolutely fine. After the second application, however, I experienced cramping and am having slight spotting. It only lasts for a short while and for the first two days was the colour of old blood, tan coloured. Today there are fresh blood streaks but only very miniscule amounts. My discharge is also a lot thicker and mucus like in texture. I’m currently in the middle of my ovulation cycle so I don’t know whether that is contributing to it but it’s unusual for me to spot between periods as I’m very regular. The pelvic area feels inflamed internally but this goes away with ibuprofen. Do I have an infection or is this quite normal?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be due to ovulation bleed or even due to infection (possible introduction of infection during your procedure). The exact cause can only be made out after careful evaluation. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Treatment as appropriate (based on evaluation results) would be started to help you control the spotting and regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
