Hi there anyone and everyone, I had my biopsy done on Tuesday 2/26/2013. I am 40 years old. The procedure itself was not too bad, unexpected very much so, as I was only there for my anual. My main problem has been the cramps and bleeding, today is Saturday and I am still cramping and bleeding. Called my Dr.'s office and they said it would last a couple of days. No one has yet answered my question. How many days is actually normal? I've had no fever. I have noticed my cramps have intensified. The absolute worse part is waiting for results. These have been the longest days and hours for my spouse,kids and I. In all these comment's no one really has said how long they actually bleed and cramped. Someone please help.

Had a biopsy this morning and it wasn't that bad. Uncomfortable, yes, but bearable. I have an awesome dr. and her office staff told me how to prepare with ibuprofen and she called in a prescription of Cytotec to take the night before. My doc told me what she was doing during the procedure and it didn't take long at all. The nurse stayed with me for a few minutes afterward to make sure I could stand.up on my own and then I got dressed and went to work. Felt ok all day- just having some slightly clumpy bleeding. Anyone else experience this? I'm just wondering how long it will last.

I had an endometrial biopsy today. Thank you to all who posted. My Dr informed me that it would be very painful but it only last 15 sec and "you can endure anything for 15 second right?" She said, one lady said never again, then she said I could do it. after these comments, I researched this and saw all the comments here. I also researched this on medical sites for peer review articles. here's what i found out. My dr uses a device which collects multiple samples from multiple sites for 15 seconds. This is the best for ruling out cancer since it gets all locations. it is used commonly by many doctors and is called vabra aspiration. some doctors collect only one small sample from one location and this may be why some biopsies are less painful. my doctor does lots of biopsies so she is good at it. I decided to have her do this procedure, but, I insisted on Valium, lortab, cytotec [to dilate the cervix] and I also,took aleve. I took 400 mg cytotec the night before and 100 mg the day of the procedure and getting the device in my uterus was so easy, even though I have never had a vaginal delivery. I also insisted on intra uterine lidocaine. After she inserted 5cc of lidocaine gel, she waited 5 min. For it to work. Make sure to wait these 5 minutes. There was no pain, only slight pressure even when she took the biopsy. I think she was surprised I had no pain. Please ask your doctor for these meds. Btw. The cost for the meds was very minimal after my insurance. I think I paid $5 after insurance for all this. Please ask for this! I am so thankful for the prayers of my church family and for the medications that made this procedure painfree!

I had a doctor do an impromptu, unsolicited one on me. I am mortified that this is allowed to happen to women without anesthesia. This was the worst experience of my life. I bleed for days and had pain for 10 days and counting. This needs to be a procedure done in the hospital or under heavy medication.

The more I read this stuff, the bigger my panic attack is getting. I went in for an E.B a few days ago, and my doctor (who is an internist) could not get to my extremely tipped uterus... So is sending me to a gyno to have it done. It was painful enough having her dig around in there trying to find it. Now I'm frozen with fear! I'm 44 and suspect I'm hitting perimenopause due to shorter cycles. The doctor wants to rule out everything before treating for hormones. I've had an ultrasound and bloodwork done so far, and this dang biopsy is all that's left... And I seriously don't know if I'll be able to handle it now after reading all of this :/ Any words of encouragement to get me through this? Gah!!
