    I have had a biopsy and didn't have anything but some ibuprofen. It was hardly more than a pap. Just a little more uncomfortable but nothing major at all. I haven't had a hysteroscopy though.

      I had a biopsy -uterus, no ibuprofen even and I dont think I needed it . Honestly, I think most women, unless there is a specific issue like Michelle, have no big problem with it. I think it is more a sample of the blood lining, it felt a bit like something was pulling in my womb, not exactly painful,more achy maybe, uncomfortable. Going to a dentist is worse!

    Hi there, I had it, wide awake, didn't need the gas and air.  Felt like a PAP smear.  I lay there terified like you, and ready to scream.  I remember saying 'hurry up, I cant stand the tension...' they said,  it's done.  My advice would be, if you feel the slightest twinge, scream the place down.  Or cry your eyes out on your way in, so they give you sedation smile   Don't worry hun.  Its a breeze x

    Biopsy wasn't awful. A bit uncomfortable, but not more. I walked right afterwards as I had no near parking. Nothing to fear in terms of pain.

    Hysteroscopy is just a tube used to look inside the vagina and cervix. Some women don't feel anything or just a minor discomfort. You are put to sleep since there's hardly any discomfort.

    It is uncomfortable and you should be asleep for it.

      For some people Lesley it is very uncomfortable as I have experienced being awake while trying to have a hysteroscopy but it was very very painful for me and I have to have it done while asleep.although I do have deep endometriosis and a nodule of endo behind cervix not sure if this could have made it especially painful for me personally ? On the other hand my friend on here had it awake and she was absolutely fine.we are all different and should not compare one to the other on this.😊😊

      Michelles, what exactly is this: I do have deep endometriosis and a nodule of endo behind cervix. Did they give medication or D&C or is it something that gets better as you age?

      Hi Michelle, I recall having local anethesia given to me one time. You can probably request the same. Reason you have pain is because you could possibly have spots of endometriosis in your vagina wall which can cause women pain. They can also give you a valium to calm you before the procedure. Except you would need someone to pick you up.

      Since march when I had a heavy bleed i take it for 3 weeks then have a weeks break but I spot in between lightly.i was diagnosed with a endometrial small clot after an mri which was probably why I had a heavy bleed as I knew it wasn't a period.xx

      I see. So then, no big deal. You can request to have local anethesia where you won't feel a thing or/and a relaxer. Unless,  it's too painful then you may need to be put under. Hope it all works out, best of luck.

      Thank you I think I may need to ask again yes.noone has ever explained what a small endometrial dependant clot is,and why I would get one have you any idea what this is or anyone have an idea what this is ? I hope it's dispersed by now as this was in April.i knew my period wasn't a period in March as it was horrific like a haemorrhage,stopped with norethesterone after 3 weeks. Xxx
