I just had a biopsy this afternoon. I heard horror stories and stories of 'it is no big deal'. Right before the biopsy, as I was waiting frantically and anxiously, I asked the nurse what to expect. She said it isn't pleasant, but it feels like a really bad menstrual cramp plus some extra pain. That is exactly what it felt like. The doc told me everything as he did it, and there was cramping and some other pain that can be compared to a pap smear, maybe slightly worse. But not nearly as bad as expected. There was bleeding afterwards and a pad is necessary. The cramping for me lasted about 2 hours and then I was fine. I plan to rest up all day tomorrow just in case. But I was very relieved to hear the doc say that I was finished and I really didn't blow a gasket. Not a walk in the park, but I've had worse things done. It all depends on your tollerance. I had 2 percocets and a xanax before hand, but I'm used to those meds due to an ongoing back problem. They advised 2 advil, but to me that seemed ridiculous. If you have percocet, take 1 or 2. Otherwise, good luck and just breath in and our slowly and try to be calm and relaxed throughout the procedure and you'll do fine.

I would agree my doctor explained everything and the pain was not too bad during the procedure. The cramps after sucked it was like pre-labor pains. I suggest however that you make sure the doc has enough tissue. I am having to have a repeat procedure because my doc only got blood in the sample. It sucks to have to go through it, but to have to go through it again needlessly is just plain awful!

I would like to say that my emdometrial biopsy didn't hurt, but it did. I'm glad the information I had before hand was vague because for me it really was painful and I cramped for at least 4 days after. I think I have a fairly high threshold for pain as I have had bad cramps all my life. Everything I read said they gave a local anesthetic, for whatever reason, my gynecologist did not give me a local...which might be the difference. I would advise asking for the local anesthetic if it is available in you doctor's office.

I had an endometrial biopsy and I was scared to death to put it mildly. I read such horror stories on the internet that I almost didn't show up for the appt. I am writing this to hopefully ease someones fears if they r about to have one. It was not that bad at all. I took motrin 30 minutes before. I had just a little cramping and it was over quick. I had some bleeding the day of and the next day and that was it. I never took anymore motrin after that first time. Hardly any cramping after, just felt a little tender. The hard part is waiting for the results...hope it's good news because I had to have one after 2 abnormal paps

I had an endo biopsy and no pain relievers ahead of time and it was not at all painful. I did have some bleeding, but that is why the biopsy was done - so I don't know if it was from the biopsy or not. Anyway, even if there is discomfort it is better to nip (no pun intended) any potentially serious problem in the bud. Good luck all!

I just had a biopsy yesterday and it wasn't bad. I had a little spotting and cramping. Today I felt fine, but I've been doing housework and just started cramping again a little. The level of pain you experience depends on how easy it is to "access your cervix" according to my doc. Some people experience very little pain and others feel a lot of pain. I would recommend that you take a couple of ibuprophen beforehand. It definitely helped with the pain.
