In patients with a history of LEEP, does use of progestin-only contraception increase the risk of cervical stenosis?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Use of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) at the time of loop electrosurgical excisional procedure (LEEP) for cervical dysplasia may increase the risk of developing cervical stenosis. The risk seems to be correlated with induction of amenorrhea (SOR: C, single disease-oriented case-series). Other forms of progestin-only contraception (oral, intrauterine, or implantable) have not been specifically studied.
