Sonogram or sedation: A pelvic sonogram performed by a certified skilled sonographer or a saline sonohysterogram may help decide if an endometrial sampling is really necessary.

Immense pain with endometrial biopsy now doc wants me to have novasure with no sedation. Just local anesthetic. Should I worry? As I am.
Had endometrial biopsy. Doc said no cancer was found but it showed "disorganized cells". Waiting for gyn call. What does disorganized mean? What do?
Not entirely normal: Unless we can see the formal pathology report, it is hard to tell exactly what it means. When cells are not entirely normal in their appearance or orderly in their location/organization, you will see such a report. It simply means to recheck them again in the future so that your doctor can keep an eye on the observed changes which can either settle down with time or rarely, progress to cancer. ...Read more

Hysteroscopy/ D&C: If you are having postmenopausal bleeding then a hysteroscopy with a D&C is appropriate. About 10% of postmenopausal bleeding may be attributed to cancer. However since you were on hrt, sometimes it can take up to 6 months for bleeding to stop. Given your history that your bleeding (assuming you are having this) the likelihood that it's due to hrt or endometrial polyp is more common than cancer. ...Read more
I had an endometrial biopsy & a IUD inserted. I'm a virgin so I'm positive my Doc. Broke my hymen. If I have Sex will it hurt?? will my hymen grow back?
It doesn't: The pain with first sex idea is overdone. If a woman has a healthy vulva and vagina; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves with small motions until she is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be hymen tearing nor bleeding. Ignore the hymen, as it should be of no relevance. ...Read more
I have slight pinkish discharge after intercourse married and no stds. Doc has done endometrial biopsy and ecc, pap and HPV test all ngtv then why?
Probably normal: First of all, it was a great idea to have this checked out. Pinkish discharge, or spotting, can have a serious cause. But since all your tests were normal, the symptom is probably normal for you. It may be due to a bit of trauma with the skin inside the vagina being irritated during intercourse. If there are spermicidals or other fluids, even semen, then the discharge is diluted -- pinkish. ...Read more
