Ionly ask coz im a bit worried i had this done in 2006, never had any problems since having it done.
But last night i went the toilet and i noticed bleeding it was bright red and fresh blood. bleed was only a one off and not happened since. I still got my self checked out tho, seen a GP in the walk in centre who examined my abdo and i had tenderness on my right lower side. so he sent me straight to the gyne ward at the hospital who checked me over and did an internal examination on me. the doctor said i had blood on my right side that looked dry like old redish/brownish blood, so she took a swap. Anyway i had a scan done there and then and baby was fine moving about and seen a heartbeat so they sent me home and said it could be due to the loop diathermy i had done or it could be just hormonal changes. i feel fine today just a bit tender on my right side. im just worried that this could cause my baby any harm and im quite puzzled as i didnt really get a explanation on what caused the bleeding. im 13 +5 weeks.

Hello there, I had a loop diathermy or LEETZ procedure as i've found it's called as well. I had it done last year in May. I conceived in November. I haven't had any problems with bleeding though or anything like that so I really can't advise you. Although I don't think it should cause harm in the early stages. They do say that there is possiblity of having a baby premature but i'm not too sure. I would ring up the Doctors and NHS direct , to see if they can give you the results of the swab, but as long as the scan showed baby is alright then i don't think you have anything to worry about.

Hi there, I had the LEETZ done in April 2006 and I am 9+1. I too have had two shows in the last two weeks but I have been assured by my GP that the procedure has nothing to do with it. Also had a scan at 7+3 and what a relief to see my lo heart beating away. I have been told that its as simple as some women bleed during early pregnancy and others dont but I know its not as easy as all that not too worry. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you don't have any more bleeding and that you enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
