At Advanced Women's Care of Pittsburgh, P.C. in McMurray, Mt. Lebanon and Caste Village, PA, we offer leading endometrial biopsy services. Endometrial biopsy is a method used to study the lining of your uterus. A sample of lining is taken in the doctor's office. This takes only a few minutes. You may be asked to sign a form giving your consent for this procedure.

We proudly serve the needs of women in these areas:  Pittsburgh, Washington, and Allegheny County.

- Endometrial biopsy may help pinpoint the

cause of certain problems. These include:

- Bleeding too often

- Very heavy periods

- Very irregular periods

- Trouble getting pregnant

Reasons for Endometrial Biopsy:

- You lie on an exam table with your knees bent, like a pap test

- A speculum is inserted into your vagina to hold it open as it is during a pelvic exam

- A small tube is passed through your cervix into your uterus – it is normal to feel cramping

- Your doctor takes a tiny sample of the uterine lining, removes the tube and speculum, and the sample is sent to the lab

The Procedure:

If you have a heart murmur or mitral valve prolapse, be sure to alert your doctor when you schedule the biopsy.

Alert your doctor if you have a heart murmur

Endometrial biopsy procedures

- You'll rest on the table until you're told you can get dressed

- For a few hours, you may still feel some mild cramping. This can often be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.

- You may have some bleeding for a few days. You can wear a pad, but don 't use a tampon unless your doctor says it's OK.

- You may be told not to have sex for one to two days.

Call your doctor if you have any of the following:

After the Procedure:

- Severe cramping or pain that doesn't go

away with pain medication
