2 weeks ago today I had a cone biopsy and endometrial biopsy's. I'm still bleeding is this normal?
Depends: First there are three types of conization (laser, cold knife, and LEEP). All may be associated with some light bleeding, though it should get better with time. I usually see my conization patients two weeks post op, so you might need a follow up as well. If the endometrial biopsy was for abnormal bleeding then this could be more of that also. ...Read more
I had a endometrial biopsy two days ago. Bleeding has gotten worse as days go on. And now passing some clots. Is this normal or at least ok?
A bit concerning: Usually a routine endometrial biopsy causes little bleeding/pain and often much better by 48 hours. In your case it has gotten worse, which is not usual.

It will need more testing to determine if there is a relation. ...Read more
