Endometrial Biopsy

I have an Endometrial Biopsy in order to test for cancer cells scheduled for Wed as pre op. Does it hurt? Can I return to work in the afternoon or should I take off? She is doing it in the office so I am thinking it isn't that bad...hopefully...

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

Hi, I have had that done and I dont want to scare you but yes it is painful. You probably do not want to go back to work that same day and youre going to want to take it easy and not do too much. You should be fine the next day. Dont be scared if you have some discharge too for a few days that is normal, the doctor didnt tell me that and it scared me to death. You might also experience pain ( kinda like bad menstral pain) Good luck to you. Let us know how you did.. HUGS to you.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

I know it varies a lot but I had no pain during or after, and no spotting or discharge. But I was warned I might have heavy cramping with the biopsy, and some do, just like some are like me and painfree. If taking the day off is an option you might consider it, in case. I was instructed to take ibuprofen an hour before, I'm sure that helped. Good luck, with procedure and results.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

I had it done a few months ago, before we decided on the hysterectomy. Yes, the procedure was painful and I was a little sore and crampy after. I honestly can't remember if I went back to work. I think I did but wasn't feeling great and went home. If you have the option not to go back to work, I probably wouldn't go.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

Ok I had this today and it wasn't too bad. I was waiting for the Dr to come in and I heard a girl somewhere in the office screaming OMG,,,Omg!! I had to fight the urge to grab my clothes and RUN!!! Dr came in and asked how I was and I told her I was ok until I heard the girl screaming. She told me I would be fine. It was crampy specially in my back but she gave me a 800 mg Ib and in about an hour I was good to go. Went back to work and the only thing I have now is some light spotting. She gave me another perscription for Provera and told me I prob wouldn't even finish it because she was looking at surgery in less than 2 weeks. Ladies I am so ready to get this over with and began to live a regular life again!!!

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

When I had my biopsy, I took ibuprofen about an hour before the procedure. During the procedure, it was uncomfortable, but not painful. There was a little cramping and spotting afterwards. I had the biopsy done in the morning and back at work that afternoon. I was uncomfortable, but not in pain.

So I guess it's different for everyone.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

Like everything, individual experiences vary. I thought the biopsy was uncomfortable, but pretty quick, it was over & I went back to work shortly thereafter. I took some kind of over-the-counter pain pill.

Spotting wasn't an issue for me because I "spotted" (or worse) pretty much everyday before surgery.

Haven't even needed a panty liner since, at least not for "spotting" - just in case you were wondering.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

I was one of those that almost passed out from the pain. The Doc would not even let me get up for 10 minutes to get my color back. I asked her why it hurt so bad and she told me that women who have never vaginally delivered a baby can sometime hurt more than others... I had 3 c-sections so nothing has ever passed thru the cervix for me.
I hope I am not scaring you too much but I wish someone would have told me that it might hurt instead of saying it might be just a little pinch. I would have been better prepared....

Makes sense. I have kids & no c-section.

Re: Endometrial Biopsy

I did my biopsy this morning. I took 2 Advil about an hour before the procedure. I was very nervous, but it turned out to be very easy. Felt the same as a regular annual pelvic with only a twinge of a cramp when he went through my cervix. Took less than a minute for the actual procedure. I have been spotting all day, but very minimal. As for work, I clean houses and had no problem going straight to work for 4 hrs. I hope yours is as simple and painless as mine.
