An endometrial biopsy without endometrium is either the result of lack of endometrium or lack of uterine penetration. The physician who performed the procedure should provide a satisfactory answer. If not, your problem should be brought to the attention of a (another) trusted gynecologist (The absence of endometrium makes endometrial malignancy less likely, particularly if your uterus is small,)
