transvaginal ultrasound & endometrial biopsy

Hi all,

Went to my dr. yesterday because I've been having spotting between periods for the last month. She said she didn't think it was anything to worry about but wanted to do an endometrial biopsy just in case. I asked her if it'd hurt. She said yes, there's cramping involved. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? It felt like she doused a chain saw with acid & rammed it up inside me. "Cramping" seems to be code in doctor world for unbearable, searing agony.

She also wants me to have a transvaginal ultrasound. I've never had one & would like to know if it's as gut-wrenchingly, excruciatingly painful as the biopsy. If so, I'm not going through with it. I'd much rather die....though that seems unlikely since she thinks there's "nothing to worry about" anyway.

Thanks in advance for any input.
