Cryocauterization of Cervix

Home Obstetric & Gynaecology Cryocauterization of Cervix

The majority of the women experience bleeding after sex or excessive vaginal discharge. This condition is called cervical ectropion or ectopy, where delicate cells of the cervical canal start spreading on the cervix’s surface, making it red. As these cells are thinner and delicate, they are more likely to bleed during sex or Pap smear test. Cervical ectropion can be treated with a procedure known as cervix/cervical cryocauterization or cryocautery.

What is Cervix Cryocauterization?

Cervix cauterization Dubai, also known as Cryocautery, is an aesthetic gynecological procedure in which the cervix is temporarily frozen using a metal probe. Freezing the cervix stimulates the growth of tough and thick tissues that do not bleed or produce abnormally excessive discharge. Cryocautery is a safe procedure that does not affect the fertility of the patient.

How to prepare for Cryocautery?

You need to follow the guidelines given by your gynecologist before undergoing cervical ectropion treatment Dubai. You should not be pregnant or menstruating while getting cervix cauterization. Also, take the pain relief medications prescribed by your doctor before the treatment.

How is Cryocautery Performed?

Cervical cryocauterization Dubai can be performed without local anesthesia because it does not cause severe pain. Simple pain medications like ibuprofen help reduce the discomfort faced during the procedure.

  • In the first step, you will be asked to lie on a couch with your legs open.
  • The gynecologist will slide the speculum into the vagina to monitor the cervix properly in the next step.
  • After that, a metal probe will be placed on the cervix for almost 2 minutes. In this step, you will experience some discomfort.
  • This probe freezes the cells using very cold temperatures that destroy the superficial cervix layer.

What to Expect After Cervix Cauterization?

Cryocauterization of the cervix does not require an overnight stay at the hospital. You can go home 15 minutes after getting the treatment. However, you will experience a heavy watery discharge during the initial few days after the treatment. In some cases, the watery vaginal discharge may last for four weeks. Also, expect pain like period cramps for a few hours and light bleeding for three weeks.

In addition to this, you might observe the discharge turning brown from pink. Here, you should note that the vaginal discharge should not be yellow with a foul smell. If you observe a yellow discharge, visit your doctor at your earliest.


It is essential to follow post-treatment guidelines if you want to reduce the risk of complications. Some of the common aftercare guidelines for cervix cauterization are;

  • Avoid tampons and use sanitary towels.
  • You should avoid sex for at least 3 to 4 weeks.
  • Refrain from swimming after getting the treatment.
  • Vaginal creams are strictly prohibited post cervical cauterization.


The most significant advantages of cervix cryocauterization that is also an abnormal bleeding treatment Dubai are;

  • It reduces vaginal bleeding during sex or periods.
  • Your fertility is not damaged or affected.
