Open Cervix

An open cervix may be needed to perform a LEEP procedure to get at all effected tissue, but is not related to lichen sclerosus. Multiple D&Cs or LEEP may cause such condition. The problem may arise only if the opening is pinpoint (stenotic), which impedes the menstrual flow and leads to increased cramping and a higher chance of endometrosis. Usually it doesn't matter if what shape and size the opening is. An open cervix may be needed to perform a LEEP procedure to get at all effected tissue, but is not related to lichen sclerosus.
