I've never seen a patient have the cervix scar up shut after an endometrial biopsy with hysteroscopy. ...Read more

I had an endometrial biopsy done on Thursday to see if the Fibroid Tumor they found was cancerous. Friday night I started cramping and going nothing ?

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.
