I was told by my ob/gyn that I needed to have a cervical biopsy done. He explained that he could do the procedure in his office and all I would need to take for discomfort is Motrin. Is the pain only a mild discomfort? Is there anything I should be aware of concerning this?
I have had this done twice. It is very unpleasant. Motrin does not cut it. If you have not had it done yet, I advice to go under general. My 2nd procedure, I had done just that and they were able to find more... I had endometriosis of the cervical canal. They would have not been able to detect this if it were a quick biopsy in the office. I have HPV as well.
