I am 48years old and post menopausal I had one episode of spotting four months ago and was sent to gynaecologist who did internal and external ultrasounds and endometrial biopsy lining was measured at 4mm and biopsy was clear. I then had another episode of bleeding two weeks ago which was much heavier and lasted about seven days was refered back to gynaecologist who had me in gave me general anesthetic and did a hysteroscopy and took another biopsy which was sent to histology . my question is why would he take another biopsy if the first one came back ok? I am still waiting to hear the results so I am assuming everything is ok. do they do biopsies even if they don't find anything? I was also wondering if anyone out there could tell me how long it takes for results to come back? I would very much appreciate any thoughts on this and if any one else has had any similar experiences.
