Sex and CIN3

By Anonymous November 11, 2016 - 9:46pm

I've been recently diagnosed at CIN3 (HPV16).
I have my LEEP scheduled for next month. Is it safe for my husband and I to be sexually active in the mean time? Will sexual activity cause any issues with these already bad cells?
Thank for the info!!

Hello, Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to EmpowHer today.

If you engage in intercourse, I would advice using protection. However, a call to your doctor would be advised. I hope your procedure goes well. Below is a link about LEEP if you'd like to find more information.
