A couple of days: If you are still spotting after a couple of days, its would be prudent to consult your doctor. The spotting may be due to the reason the biopsy was done.

Is it okay to have biopsy of uterus during period?

YES: It is ok to do a biopsy of the uterus any day, depending on what the doctor is looking for - but you can get better information about the quality of the mucosa on day 21 of cycle. However that is hard to do if the period is very irregular.

A 53-year-old female asked:

Can a uterus biopsy trigger a period I'm 53 ?

Probably not: It's more likely that the endometrial biopsy has disrupted your lining and caused some bleeding. It should be light and gone in a few days. This is not likely a normal period (which requires that you ovulate and produce your own progesterone). Were you having irregular bleeding to begin with? Is that why they were doing the biopsy in the first place?
