Black bleeding after LEEP

I recently had a LEEP procedure to remove high grade squamous and glandular cells from my cervix. After the procedure I was bleeding black like they told me I would. I have had two normal periods since then, but my third period is back to bleeding black and I can't find any information on what to do about it. Is it a complication of my LEEP or something else? I would greatly appreciate any information or advice you can offer about this.

Thank you!

Dear Autumn,

The black material you saw after the LEEP is usually the result of the medication that is put on the cervix to stop the bleeding. It's hard to imagine that the medication is still there so long after the procedure, so I'm not sure what is going on. You should talk it over with your doctor.
