Several months ago, my primary Dr. tried to give me a uterine biopsy. She never could because the pain literally made me jump off the table after about 5 failed attempts. I was shocked at this incredible pain. My Dr. said she wanted me to go to an OB/Gyn because they have better tools for biopsies. I haven't gone yet because the memory of the other one has me terrified. I did a little research on this, and from what I've read, the OB/GYNs give anesthesia for this because it is so painful.

Have any of you had any experiences with uterine biopsies, good or bad? Have you had one without anesthesia? What could be wrong that she wasn't able to get through to get a biopsy? Thanks.

She wasn't an OB/GYN. I had a colposcopy (think that was the word) some years ago and felt a small pressure, nothing real painful. I think that was a biopsy. Go to an OB/GYN.

I had a uterine biopsy done by an OB/GYN. I was quite nervous about it. The pain was EXCRUCIATING, but only lasted a few seconds, then I was fine. All was well, thankfully, and I hope I never have to go through it again.

I have had one as well, by my gyn. He didn't use any kind of anesthesia and I will admit it was very painful, but the painful part was no more than about 30 seconds. Keep that in mind and you will get through it. I also took DH back with me and that helped a great deal. I wouldn't allow a general doctor to do it because they don't have nearly as much experience as the ob/gyns.

Thanks to all of you. I know I need one, as I have my period usually for a month, then it stops for a couple of weeks, then another month. This time it has gone over a month, and it gets very heavy, so that I can't even go anywhere. It felt like she was pressing a sharp knife into a nerve. Is that how it felt for y ou? Isn't that unusual that she couldn't get in there? Thanks.
