REPOST FROM FEB 2011 - My doctor on Long Island is amazing! She promised me if I listened to her on how to prepare - it would be fine... and it worked!
MINE WENT FINE!: I just had mine done today. I was so nervous after reading these posts- but mine was a breeze. My appt was at 10:45 am. The night before I took two 200 mg Advil. Then this morning at 9:30 am I took two Tylenol. At 10:00am before I left the house I took another three 200 mg of Advil. My doctor was wonderful. She told me to rub my belly in circular motions while she did it. I felt discomfort, but no real pain. My doctor told me that she has done many of these, and if she felt that I would have been in real pain, she would have done it in the hospital with anesthesia. She said that the rubbing actually helps stop the cramps.

I had my biopsy done about two hours ago. It was a little more uncomfortable than a pap smear. It is relatively quick just minutes. Before I went all that i read was painful horrible stories recounted by screaming women....not true for me and i'm sure many others. If you read these stories they can scare you to death....don't let them. Relax.

I had an endometrial biopsy this week. I am scared to death of being awake during procedures and a friend gave me some Bible verses to hold onto during the procedure. “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you. For I am the Lord your God, The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;" -Isaiah 43:1-3 "Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." -Isaiah 41:10 The biopsy was extremely painful, but I can tell you I had given it over to God and held onto those Scriptures during the procedure. I slept the rest of the day, had bleeding and cramping, but the next day, praise God, I woke up with no more bleeding and went to the Y for a step class! Life is not easy, and there are often painful turns, but I am very thankful for the Word of God that says we will make it through if we hold onto Him!

I had one done about 10 yrs ago and it was so painful I passed out. I have to have another one done in 3 weeks and I am scared to death! I will defenatly take a vicadin and some IBF. I swore I would never have this done again without being put under. She gave me a script to take the night before of something to help soften the tissue??? I am 59 with no children. I was told it hurt so bad since the opening to my uterus is the size of a pin head. I feel for you and I am scared to death to have thid done again :[

I went in for my annual today. I told my doctor my period was off and I had bled for almost two weeks the prior month. She said I am going to do a uterine lining biopsy...I kinda freaked. However, other then a little pinch and very mild cramping, it was over in less then a minute. I am spotting and very tiny cramps but it wasn't bad at all and I am a complete baby.

I had mine done this morning. I think there are several ways to get a sample, some being worse than others. The way mine was done was the worst pain i have ever felt. I took 1000mg of tylenol an hour before and it did nothing. The initial prep was not bad, sort of like a pap but the biopsy was very painful. Mine was done with a straw like syringe and she plunged in and out several times, felt like severe cramping and stabbing. Also felt like labor pains in my lower back. She also had to do it twice because she didn't get enough the first time. I still have cramps but tolerable. The horrible pain only lasted the duration of the sampling...felt like eternity though.

Abby12, you described the exact experience that I had [stabbing and cramping] in abdomen and lower back. I wish my doctor had braced me with some pain meds and I wish she had let me know the expected speed and thrust that she would apply during the insertion and retrieval. For me it was the worse cramps that I have ever had in my life (I even shifted and squirmed to try to get away from her) not realizing that the motion would be repeated. Horrible! I would not do this again for a million bucks.
