Normal Issues After Endometrial Biopsy Hysteroscopy
Biopsy is tissue removed by needle or cutting to remove part of a body part. It is usually a small amount of material that is processed by a pathologist. Most of the time it is stained and looked at through a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. Special processes are done for some tissues or problems. The purpose is to tell what the problem is (diagnosis). ...Read more

Sure likely normal: Sounds like you have been have irregular bleeding and the doctor is trying to find a source for this. With a hysteroscopic biopsy it is not likely that you are missing cancer for example. The follow up biopsy is blinded it seems from your description but is also negative. The spotting after discontinuing the Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is almost expected as a withdrawal bleed. Not concerned at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pap smears: Pap smears allow pathologists to evaluate cells from the cervix (the outside or ectocervix and inside or endocervix). Most of the time we do not find cells from the endometrial cavity in the test slide because the pap smear collection brush should not go into the endometrium. Additional biopsies are required to evaluate endometrial pathology. ...Read more
I had d and c and hysterscopy for abnormal uterine bleeding. Does hysteroacopy detect cancer during procedure or only when removed tissue is analyzed?

Endometrial lining was 1mm 7 days post ovulation- periods are very light, 2 miscarriages, HSG shows abnormal uterine shape- could this be asherman's?
Yes, Asherman's: Asherman's syndrome is adhesions of the uterus. The adhesions form usually after a procedure like a D&C for miscarriage. Adhesions are areas where there is no normal endometrial tissue cover that will grow to allow for pregnancy implantation or periods. Treating this can be difficult and take time to heal. I recommend you seek care with a reproductive endocrinologist. ...Read more

Pap smear bleeding: After menopause, the decreased estrogen makes the mucosa of the cervical area and the lining of the cervix much more delicate and apt to bleed on contact.

An endometrial biopsy will take a sampling of cells from inside the uterine cavity that can be sent to a pathologist to look for abnormal cells or hormone imbalances. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
