In brief: Endometrial biopsy

An endometrial biopsy starts just like a Pap smear.
A speculum is inserted an the cervix is visualized. The cervix is cleaned off, then a tiny tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus to get a tiny bit of tissue. It takes about 5 seconds once the tube is inserted. There is normally some cramping during the procedure. The cells are then sent to pathology for evaluation.
