Endometrial Biopsy

If you are experiencing abnormal uterine bleeding, your Seasons’ provider may perform an endometrial biopsy to investigate the cause of the bleeding.

During an endometrial biopsy, tissue samples are taken from the inside of the uterus, using a thin, hollow catheter.

Because this procedure can cause momentary cramping, we suggest you take ibuprofen (with food) one hour prior to your exam. Fortunately, the cramping is often short-lived and subsides quickly.

It’s important to note that your period may be heavier than usual following the procedure. Also, you should not douche or engage in intercourse for five days following the biopsy. Bathing and showering is permissible.
