Need advice

About 6 months ago I had my first abnormal pap smear after years of ovarian cysts. After a biopsy on 3 different areas of my cervix I was told I had moderate dysplasia. My family has a history of cervical cancer. Recently I have been expierncing breakthrough bleeding while on my cycle of birth control pills but no period while taking the placebo pills. Should I contact my doctor regarding this.

What type of follow up did your physician recommend regarding the moderate dysplasia? You can certainly contact them regarding this breakthrough bleeding but keep in mind that if the dysplasia had worsened it is likely you would be bleeding all the time.
