I have a fishy smelling discharge after an endometrial biopsy, should I be concerned?

I have a fishy smelling discharge after an endometrial biopsy, should I be concerned?

Possibly: Any abnormal discharge after an endometrial biopsy should be reported to your doctor, as it may be a symptom of having an infection of the uterus. It sounds like there is a just a bacterial overgrowth, called bacterial vaginosis. Antibiotics and probiotics can help treat and prevent "bv." see your doctor to be sure. Read more

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?

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

[contd from q re: 60 year old to have endometrial biopsy] I have never had symptoms of uterine problems (bleeding, cramps, pain, etc). Why is this procedure being performed? My last pap was normal.

Why would: U let your doc do a procedure without asking him or her why? I do not know any doc who would do that without a reason! In my pts the reason I would do it and I would tell them the reason before hand, would be post menopausal bleeding, or too thick endometrium on a pelvic ultrasound, or endometrial cells seen on a pap, but my pt would know why and have the choice to refuse the bx.

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

ToBleedOrNotToBleed: Some light spotting for a few days is not unusual, but if it persists for over a week, especially if increasing in amount or accompanied by pain, foul odor or fever then you should see your doctor ASAP.

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 also. Read more

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 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 am supposed to have an endometrial biopsy and my doc said since I have had six children it won't hurt badly, is that accurate?

Probably true: Pain during an endometrial biopsy varies with some patients feeling none and some feeling cramping. Having had six children your cervix will be more open than others making the biopsy easier and smoother. Likely you would feel less than most people for that reason. Read more
