What is an endometrial biopsy?

The uterus (womb) is lined by a special type of tissue known as the endometrium. Endometrial biopsy, or endometrial sampling, is a technique of removing a piece of tissue from the inner lining of the uterus. The sample of tissue is analyzed under a microscope in the laboratory by a pathologist, a doctor with special training in diagnosis of diseases based upon tissue examination.

I had the uterine biopsy done after an ultrasound Tuesday to check the size of my fibroids and get a sample before having NovaSure done. I was scared to death when the doctor told me I had to have endometrial biopsy done because I had it 8 years ago and it was painful. I read some reviews and decided to call my doctor and ask for some medicine to help ease the pain of the procedure. She prescribed a Valium and 2 Percocet. I took that 40 minutes before the procedure and I didn't feel any pain. It was a breeze. The Valium calmed me down and I didn't tense up during the procedure. Now I'm just waiting on my results.

I had a Pipelle endometrial biopsy this morning, after a fortnight of absolute dread after reading women's experiences of this procedure on this site. I took two tramadol painkillers an hour before my appointment. It obviously was not a pleasant experience but not horrendous either. I stayed calm and concentrated on my breathing. The cramping was like period pains but it only took around ten seconds to get the sample needed, then it was over. I had cramping pains for a few hours after, just like normal period pains, and some bleeding, but seriously, if you need this test done do not panic! It is an important test and over and done with so quickly. I am the biggest wimp going and if I can do this, anyone can!
