Discharge post cauterisation for cervical ectropion?

Almost two weeks ago, a gynaecologist diagnosed me with cervical ectropion. I have had some post-cotial bleeding and yellowy mucus like discharge. She used silver nitrate sticks and burnt of the cells. I went home with bad cramping and woke up the next day to heavy bleeding and clots which lasted 3 days. I have not experienced pain or bleeding since. However, I am still experiencing the same yellowy mucus discharge as before the cauterisation, even more so now. Do I expect this to go away in the next couple of weeks or is this a sign of an infection or that it didn't work? I haven't used any tampons or had a bath and I am on the pill.

You should check in with your doctor, but to me it sounds like the yellowish discharge might have some other cause besides the cervical ectropion.

Thanks for your reply! I've been tested for STDs, BV/Trich and thrush so can rule those out. Will see my doctor next week and see what she says.
