  • Vulva Biopsy healing?

    I had a vulvar biopsy Wednesday(10/22), I was sent home with no aftercare instructions so i've been using diaper wipes and making sure the area is kept clean and fairly but not too dry.
    The first day it was understandably tender and swollen with a little bit of bleeding and a little graying on the edges of the wound.
    Yesterday it seemed to be fine, no longer tender or swollen and just a little bit of grayish discharge on the edges of the wound.
    Today the wound is covered by sticky yellowish-gray gunk that looks like the stuff that you get at the corner of your eyes in the morning, there's no unusual smells and I don't have a fever. I tried clearing it away with a diaper wipe but it was painful so i left it where it was thinking perhaps this is part of the healing process.

    Does this sound like it's healing properly? How long should I expect it to take before it's healed enough to have intercourse?
