LEEP is another type of treatment to prevent cervical cancer which is very safe and effective.

Treatment of cervical cells that are precancerous are highly effective at preventing cervical cancer. This is why it is important to have regular Pap Smears and follow up on abnormal test results.

LEEP is a way to treat abnormal cells on the cervix. It stands for loop electrosurgical excision procedure. It removes abnormal cervical tissue by cutting it away using a thin wire loop that carries an electrical current. It may be performed after abnormal cells are found during a Pap Smear, Colposcopy, or biopsy. LEEP is highly effective in curing the problem about 90% of the time.

LEEP is usually performed while looking through the colposcope. After numbing the cervix with medication, a vinegar-like solution is applied to make the abnormal cervical cells become more visible. The electrical loop wire is then placed to remove the abnormal cells which are sent to the lab to be examined. Do not place any foreign objects into the vagina or have sexual intercourse for 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure is performed.

It is rare to have complications following a LEEP Procedure but heavy vaginal bleeding, pelvic infections, and damage to other pelvic organs or the wall of the vagina can occur. LEEP may also increase the risk of preterm birth.
