An endometrial biopsy is usually performed to investigate abnormal uterine bleeding. A tissue sample is taken from the inside of the uterus using a thin hollow catheter. The procedure can cause cramping for about five minutes and subsides quickly.
You may take four Advil™ or two Aleve™ with food one hour prior to your appointment. Your period may be heavier than usual after the procedure; there should be no douching or intercourse for five days following the procedure. Tub baths and showers are fine.
