An endometrial biopsy is performed to obtain a small tissue sample from the lining of the uterus, called the endometrium.
After the biopsy, the endometrial tissue is examined under a microscope to identify the presence of abnormal cells or the effects of hormones on the endometrium.
The purposes of an endometrial biopsy may include:
Examining cells for the presence of cancer after an abnormal cervical cancer screening (Pap exam)
Identifying the cause of heavy uterine bleeding, especially in postmenopausal women; after the cause of the bleeding is identified, treatments such as Mirena, oral contraceptives, or NovaSure may be prescribed
For patients who have experienced difficulties becoming pregnant, evaluating whether the uterus is capable of supporting a pregnancy
Determining whether the endometrium is undergoing normal changes that are synchronized with the menstrual cycle
Checking for uterine infections such as endometriosis
Evaluating the effects of hormone replacement therapy
Detecting the presence of abnormal cells or cancer
