bleeding after endometrial biopsy normal?

had an endo biopsy on tues to diagnose long, heave pds. I know it's normal to have spotting for a few days after, which i did -- but on thurs it turned heavier, and worse on friday.

my period was due on tues (the day i had the biopsy) so is this just my pd?? The flow is kind of heavy but not "flooding."

Re: bleeding after endometrial biopsy normal?

Dianne999,

I've had two of these done for the same reason - heavy long periods. You are going to have some bleeding from the biopsy. My first one - it was a little bleeding and spotting for a few days. The second one, I was on one continual heavy period for a month straight. My GYN had to give me Provera to stop the bleeding so she could do the biopsy - then I bled again from the biopsy. It finally did stop in a week or so.
I think since your period was due, then that's probably what's happening, but if your concerned, give your Dr a call.
My results were all normal, and now it's been a year since I've had it done, and my bleeding is more regular - and I'm starting to miss my periods (finally).
Mary

Re: bleeding after endometrial biopsy normal?

THanks! I did call my doc and feel reassured. it's just that they scared me at first -- "If you have heavy bleeding, CALL!!!" -- so i called, and they were like 'oh that's ok.' So whatever. I'm hoping to be put on some kind of hormone to stop bleeding so much in general. It's really annoying when you're trying to work a 9-5 job.
