Endometrial Biopsy

What can I expect during an Endometrial Biopsy?

An Endometrial Biopsy involves removing a small piece of endometrium (uterine lining) using a special catheter. A speculum is inserted into the vagina and the cervix is cleansed with an antiseptic solution. A special catheter is then placed into the uterus, and a small piece of the uterine lining is removed via the catheter. The procedure may be used to diagnose the causes of abnormal uterine bleeding and/or to evaluate conditions that may affect a patient’s ability to get pregnant or carry a pregnancy to term. Results can take up to 14 business days.
