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 an endometrial biopsy two days ago. I must say that I was afraid of what it would be like. For me, it was only a pinch, and then some cramping. Not as bad as I thought that it would be. I only bled a little bit. Now I wait for the results.

I just has my endometrial biopsy done yesterday. I was told to take 600 mg of ibuprofen, so I did. First my gynecologist went through the procedure with cons and pros of both ways, in her office or as outpatient, which was very nice of her. I chose to do it in the office so I did and she went through all she was doing and explaining what will happen with this instrument, etc. While I was having it done I had a little pinching and cramping feeling. I am still bleeding and have some cramping, but she said it will go away in a few days. If you do have it done I advise you take 6 to 8 MG of ibuprofen before it really does help the pain. I will know in a week my test results.
