    Hi, ive had biopsies taken during a hysteroscopy, but I didn't have to have anything the night before. Just a couple of painkillers an hour beforehand.

    Good luck

    I believe Misoprostol is used to help soften the cervix to make it easier for insertion of instruments for biopsy. I would think this would lessen your discomfort during the procedure. I hope all goes well for you.☺

    I got a period after 2 1/2 years of nothing...

    in menapause ..

    went for ultrasound...so now she decided to insert instrument into uterus and take a sample of wall for biopsy..

    have to insert these two pills into my vagina night before procedure ..to help relax or open cervix . Mine was apparently close to much.

      I had one as I was bleeding after 5 years of nothing. Ended up that my vagina wall was torn due to no lubrication. They wanted to be sure so had to go for scan and biopsy.

    I have just had a biopsy done last week but did not have to insert any medication. It lasted about a minute and was uncomfortable but not terribly painful.

      Well, the only thing that makes any sense to me about this is because my cervix closed ...to tight,..

      sometimes if they try to  insert the instrument they can puncture the wall of the uterus if the cervix is too tight to pass through. That’s the reason for the medication to apply night before..

      i suppose this can happen if one has not been sexually active for awhile..

      Not sure. Anyway thanks for your reply nectarine...

      How old are you when you had this done?

    I had a biopsy. Did not insert anything in advance. I'm not sure where you are located, but there are different procedures in different locations. Are they going to use any pain killer? It's quite uncomfortable, but the whole procedure took less than 4 minutes.
