Endometrial Biopsy– this is done to access the inner lining of your uterus. Cramping during this procedure is not unexpected but the duration is short. We recommend that you:

  • Take over the counter medications such as 3-200mg tablets of ibuprofen (with large glass of water or food) or Tylenol 650mg, 30 minutes prior to the procedure.
  • You will have light to moderate vaginal bleeding after this biopsy is done.


Call the office at any time of the day if you have:

  • Increased vaginal bleeding that soaks a sanitary pad every 1-2 hours
  • Malodorous discharge
  • Cramping or pain that doesn’t lessen with ibuprofen or Tylenol medication use
  • If you have a temperature over 100.0 F
