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

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

How accurate is an endometrial biopsy if you had one last year w/a hysteroscopy which was normal and a office biopsy last week same results?
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?

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
