Endometrial Lining Biopsy
Dr could only get scant sample of endometrial lining for biopsy. Had problem getting through cervix because curved. Extremely painful. Is this common?
Cervical stenosis: It is very common for the gynecologist to have difficulty inserting a biopsy instrument through the cervix when a patient is in menopause. This is called cervical stenosis.

If there is any question, you should have an ultrasound. ...Read more

Your Gyn can help: Your doctor should be guiding you further.

Had a pap smear on day 10 of menstration. Pap came back normal but shows endometrial cells on uterine lining. What does this mean? Going for a biopsy.
Likely okay: Typically, unless a woman is having irregular bleeding, endometrial cells on a pap aren't worrisome at all. That's based on a new recommendation for pap smear management. If you have irregular or heavy bleeding, doctor will want to rule out pre-cancer as cause, hence, biopsy of uterine lining. No harm in biopsy. Your doctor knows you best, so be sure to ask him/her why they have concerns for biops. ...Read more
