Possible Endometrial cancer.  Endometrial biopsy normal. Hysteroscopy D&C recommended because lining is 15.  What is this suspect of?

Endometrial polyp: If the biopsy was negative, chances are minimal that you have cancer. Most likely, you have a polyp causing the thickened endometrium. The hysteroscopy and D&C will show what is definately going on and allow removal of the tissue. It will also confirm the biopsy results, likely showing no cancer. ...Read more

My cervix closed up within 1 month of having it dilated/hysteroscopy/endometrial biopsy done at the same time. Why might it have closed up so quickly?

Cervix.: Usually after that procedure, the cervix returns to normal very quickly. I'm not sure in what context you doctor said it closed up. He or she may have just meant that it is healed. I've never seen a patient have the cervix scar up shut after an endometrial biopsy with hysteroscopy. ...Read more

Hysteroscopy/ endometrial biopsy/ d&c 2 weeks ago. Minor bleed 3 days + 4 days spotting postop. Now heavy flow. Period, or problem?

Hysteroscopy/ endometrial biopsy/ d&c 2 weeks ago. Minor bleed 3 days + 4 days spotting postop.  Now heavy flow.  Period, or problem?

Likely okay: When a woman has a d;c it usually removes her lining. So long as not soaking a pad in 1-2 hours or less, likely okay. If you're already anemic, however, or have other medical problems, you might want to go to the er to make sure that you're okay. Heavy flow in and of itself, doesn't really describe how much bleeding you're having. You can always talk to your doctor or whomever is oncall. ...Read more

2 weeks ago today I had a cone biopsy and endometrial biopsy's. I'm still bleeding is this normal?

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 as well. ...Read more

Endometrial stripe measuring 11mm. I am 37 and premenopausal. Is this normal? Do I need an endometrial biopsy?

Endometrial stripe measuring 11mm.  I am 37 and premenopausal.  Is this normal?  Do I need an endometrial biopsy?

Not necessarily: During what phase of your cycle was the stripe measured? If you have no symptoms such as irregular, heavy, prolonged, inter menstrual bleeding, observation is appropriate. The stripe thickness varies depending on when in the menstrual phase it was measured, thicker in the second half of the cycle and thinner in the first half of the cycle ...Read more

I had an 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. I am a bit worried about possibility of an infection--endometritis, thus causing worsening of bleeding. If you have more cramping, fever etc. Consult doc for an evaluation. Best of luck. ...Read more

I would however recommend you follow up with your gynecologist to make sure you don't have an infection of the uterus. Follow up soon if associated with severe abdominal pain, fever, or other concerning symptoms. ...Read more

Still waiting for pathology results from polypectomy and endometrial biopsy. I had the op on the 11th of march. Is this normal?  I called twice myself

Should have answer. : You should have gotten a result by this time. Sometimes the pathologists need to work on it longer if they see something, but they would be in touch with your other doctor(s), at least the doctor who robed your polyp. So it would be wise to speak to that doctor to try to get an answer as to what's going on. Best of luck. ...Read more
