Endometrial biopsy?

wondering - and not sure where to post this -
had a failed uterine ablation two 1/2 years ago. My Dr. wants to do an endometrial biopsy before I have my hysto, April 1. in the last 8 years I have had two - so I am not freaked about that...but am wondering...
is an endometrial a 'normal' test before a hysto?
I have adenomyosis (he thinks) and no pain, just unbelievable bleeding each month.
Just fretting a bit about why - for this test!

Endometrial biopsy?

Isn't your doctor getting things backwards?
Usually an endometrial biopsy is done first to rule out cancer as reason for bleeding.

If you are going to have a hysterectomy anyway I don't understand why the biospy beforehand? I'd ask him.

I also don't understand why you are jumping straight from an ablation to a hysterectomy? There are other less invasive procedures that are available for fibroids. I know. I had a UFE.

Endometrial biopsy?

My doctor did a biopsy to make sure I didn't need to start any kind of treatment before my hysterectomy. I need to wait until May to have surgery so he wanted to make sure things were okay.

I think your doc probably wants to do the biopsy to make sure things are ok. I have heard that sometimes if cancer is suspected then they have to do a abdominal hyster.
