Biopsy good idea: Just because there is concern for Adenomyosis and the endometrium is 3 mm's, Endometrial or Tubal CA can easily cause post menopausal bleeding. The endometrial biopsy will tell the MD and you what NOT to consider as to the cause of the bleeding which is far more important right now then what IS causing the bleeding.
