Description of the study

Electrocoagulation is a safe treatment method that involves denaturing the protein of abnormal tissues by thermally damaging it using an electric current (it involves burning the diseased tissue with an electric spark). The electrocoagulation procedure is performed using electrodes of different shapes, appropriately selected depending on the type of lesion. The procedure is not very painful. Discomfort may occur after the procedure. The length of the procedure depends on the extent of the lesions - it lasts from a few to several tens of minutes.
The advantage of the procedure is that it is very effective at permanently removing lesions on the cervix, the electrode can reach any diseased area.
The disadvantage of the procedure is the unpleasant smell of burnt flesh and the effect of the current. The cervix cannot be anesthetized, because it is not sensory innervated.
Electrocoagulation can cause permanent scarring of the cervix or narrowing of its canal, which is sometimes the cause of painful menstruation and difficulty in opening the cervix during childbirth.
Healing takes quite a long time, even 3-5 weeks, during which time discharge and spotting may occur. The procedure is best performed immediately after menstruation to minimize the risk of cervical endometriosis. The procedure should not be performed in women who have not given birth.
