after a uterine biopsy


I'm 57, about 5 yrs post-meno, and had a uterine biopsy last week because of a "somewhat thickened lining" found in an ultrasound. I never had any bleeding, it was just an incidental finding while checking if my fibroids shrunk (they did.) Anyhow, got the results back and all was fine.

My question said I might have a little spotting for a day or so afterwards. Well, I haven't had any red blood spotting, but maybe twice a day when I use the TP, there is a bit of light tan stuff on it. This is still going on and it is 8 days after the biopsy. It's not even staining my panties, but I'm just worried that everyone who has any spotting (even the red blood type) says it is just for a couple of days, and here I am 8 days later still with this tannish stuff. (no odor, no cramps though, so I'm sure it's not infection.) Anyone else have this happen? Should I be concerned, or just patient?

Re: after a uterine biopsy

I don't think so....I had a hysteroscopy 13 days or so ago and I 'spotted' for 8 days...try not to fret.....these things stress our uterus out and just depending on the scrape they did and the area.............You will be fine. I am also way past menopause....I had to have the hysteroscopy for thickened endometrium. The ultrasound showed 9mm thickening and when my doctor did the procedure in her office, she told me I have 2 small fibroids that distorted the endometrium to look thick...
