uterine biopsy...does it hurt?

After going almost 2 years without, I got what I'm assuming (hoping, praying) was a period in January. Went to my Gyno...pap smear and biopsy of cervix came back okay. Had ultrasounds (internal and ex) and they found a little thickening of my uterine wall (6.5 mm). Doctor doesn't sound 'too' concerned but wants to take it to the next step, a biopsy of my uterine wall.

Since it looks like I'll be driving myself to and from the appointment, I'd like to know what to expect. Does it hurt? I was told to expect cramping and bleeding..but to what extent?

Any info appreciated!

Re: uterine biopsy...does it hurt?

Hi seabell,
I am guessing that they will be doing a hysteroscopy. Is that correct? If so, they usually use some type of IV sedation so you'll be out during the procedure. If that is the case, you will need to have someone to drive you home. After a hysteroscopy, one does have some bleeding like a period and a prescription for pain med is usually given for something like vicodin or percocet. There is some abd pain and/or cramping that the pain pills can control nicely.
Good Luck!
