Yes: A hysteroscopy for an endometrial biopsy does not require any kind of anesthetic. A very small amount of tissue is removed with a minimal amount of pain.

Yes: Yes. You don't need general or local anesthetics with hysteroscopy and a simple uterine biopsy. You need a doctor who is skilled in hysteroscopy.
