Thread: Pain after endometrial biopsy!

  1. #1

    Pain after endometrial biopsy!

    How long does the pain usually last after an endometrial biopsy???
    Mine was done yesterday and am still hurting today! My Dr. had a hard time finding my cervix due to a large fibroid he said. I hope he didn't "break" something while doing this. Or is it normal to have cramping a day later still?

    end. biopsy



    i had an endometrial biopsy about 2 years ago - i do remember cramping for about 24 hours afterwards. you'll feel fairly normal again after 2 or 3 days. best wishes for a good result on your biopsy!

    I had the same thing done a couple of weeks ago, and I had cramping for about 4 days....but took Naproxin Sodium (550 mg Aleve) for it and it helped, because it not only helped the pain, but it was also an anti inflamitory. It will be better soon sweetie...I feel your pain.

    Biopsy

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm not a cancer patient but I did have a endometrial biopsy yesterday and had read you reviews of it.

    I just wanted to say it was not that bad. When the doctor takes the sample I did get a shooting pain that I was not prepared for but it only lasted about 3 seconds followed by cramps. The shock of the pain made me dizzy and nauseous. I was ok in about 5 minutes. Drove myself home. I had taken 2 Biscopan plus before so maybe that helped. I had light spotting at first but woke up last night with proper bleeding like a period, not cramps though. Hope it doesnt last long.

    Overall its not that bad but take a good pain killer, or even a bit of a sedative so you are more relaxed.

    I had this done two weeks ago, and it came back positive for uterine cancer. Since this biopsy im bleeding more then ever, and the lower abd pain is always there. Before the biopsy i never had any pain ever!!
    I go for a total rad. hysterectomy on july 7th.. Im freaking out and can hardly get through the day.. they are taking everything, including my lymph nodes and ovaries and cervix and flopiean tubes and uterus..

    I am 54 yrs old post menopausal and found out because I was having slight cramping that my endometrial lining was 7.2 mm. Normal is 3mm. Had ultrasound internal and external and saw very small fibroids, but nothing that would cause pain. Also had blood test CA 125 and other blood test and all are within normal range. I had a endometrial biopsy yesterday and was told I wouldn't know the results for 3 weeks and I don't want to wait that long. I have no bleeding but have pain in my right leg radiating down to my knee. I also have a tilted pelvis that causes pain. My mother had uterine cancer when she was 75 and died a year later from it so I am pretty scared even though my mother had a lot of bleeding off and on. I don't know if this could be uterine cancer or not but it is different than my mom's

    I agree it isn't that bad but it also depends on the doctor. My doctor told me everything he was going to do and it put me at ease. He gave a shot of lidocaine which I thought was the worst of the pain and it only caused some strong cramping for about 30 seconds and then I was able to relax. I think it is more painful to wait for the results which takes about 3 weeks and I had the endo biopsy yesterday. I am experiencing low back pain that radiates down my right leg but the xray showed a tilted pelvis and I can do exercises to alleviate that pain. I have no spotting or bleeding just 7.2 endometrial lining with some cramping and the leg pain

    Hi Sandy2ch,

    My Mom just had an endometrial biopsy yesterday and she too is still having some abdominal discomfort the next day as a result. She's 65 yo and her lining was measured at 7mm. They only found this because she was complaining of a pain in her hip/groin area when she walked for a long period or climbed stairs...so they decided to do an ultrasound and discovered the thickened lining. She also has no bleeding. I guess at this point we just have to wait the 3 weeks and hope for the best!

    I checked this forum for an idea of what to expect before my endo biopsy today. Just left clinic and I want to share my experience also. I would rate the discomfort level very low. My nerves were probably the bigger concern. Only one moment of cramping when she started messing around with the "straw". It triggered what I would consider a mild cramp that eased a little and lasted the remainder of the appt...like the kind of cramp I would get as a teenager. In the car now and little to no pain. Maybe cramps will pick up later, but at this point I feel like doing it again wouldn't put ky anxiety in overdrive. I prepped by taking 600 ibuprofen, and the doc pushed some lidocain in with the "straw".

    Biopsy done to check for cause of excessive bleeding.

    Hi pdxginni -- Thanks for reviving an old thread on an important topic. I remember worrying a lot before my biopsy because I had read that it can be extremely painful. Fortunately mine just felt like cramps -- just like yours. Not bad at all. I took some ibuprofen before the appointment, but my doctor did not use lidocain. Seems like this test is fine for most women, but for some, it can be quite painful.

    Hope everything goes well for you, and that your lab results are clear.
