hi,
I just had an endometrial biopsy by D&C last sat. My dr suggested it because she wants to check what's causing my heavy monthly period. How old are you if you dont mind me asking? I read that if you are post menopausal it is not normal to have a thick endometrial stripe. By doing the biopsy, your dr will find out if there are abnormalities in your uterus.
You will get the results after a few days. I got my results last tues and Dr said there were no abnormal cells found. Will be back for a followup check up tom.
Hope this helps...

I'll be 39 next month.  I've had heavy periods, that last 7 to 10 days. I've recently started bleeding during intercourse. This was my sudden reasoning for making an appt. w/ my Dr. I'm just concerned they might find something serious.

Hi. I am in the same boat as you, I had a Ultrasound and it showed some fibroids and a polyp. My Dr. also said that my lining was thick and that when she does my D&C next week she wants to try and dialate my cervix to stick a camera in to take a look around. She said that thier could be cancerous or pre cancerous cells. OK now I am really scared. I am 39. I have read alot though and a thick lining seems to be quite common.

If you do not want to have children then I suggest instead of a D&C to have ThermaChoice surgery. You won't have your period anymore and will not have to be on BC. The surgery burns out the lining of your uterus. It is the BEST!!
