Endometrial Biopsy

An endometrial biopsy is an in-office procedure that is used to remove a sample of the lining of the uterus . An endometrial biopsy is usually done to investigate abnormal uterine bleeding. Tissue samples from the inside of the uterus using a thin hollow catheter are obtained. The procedure can cause cramping for short amount of time, but typically subside quickly.

What To Expect

A speculum will be placed in the vagina as with a Pap smear. The cervix will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution before the device is inserted. A thin catheter is inserted and goes through the cervix into the uterus to get a sample of the tissue.


You may have mild cramping. Expect vaginal discharge. We will advise you not put anything in the vagina or exercise for several days. Biopsy results are usually available 7-10 days after the procedure
