I got a transvaginal ultrasound because of a report of endometrial cells in my pap test. The result looked entirely normal, with an even lining measurement of 0.17 mm. I am menopausal and have had no bleeding at all for 1 year. Still, they want to do a biopsy because of the abnormal pap. >> Should I get this recommended biopsy? How could they even know where to get a tissue sample from? Why did I even bother to get the ultrasound? :confused:
Thanks silvershark! I spoke to my physician and he basically said that he was not very concerned, but he wanted me to have it just to be sure. I agreed. If there is any doubt, I would like to have a more accurate answer. What are the chances that a biopsy would yield a false negative?

I have searched on the internet, but cannot find any other reason that there might be normal endometrial cells on the pap of a menopausal woman. Thoughts?
hi april
I just had a endometrial biopsy and they vacuumed the cells out..I also had a vaginal ultrasound where they inject saline in and look at the lining of the uterus and everything looked okay..they can also look at it in 3D and it was not built up and looked healthy..but I still am having bleeding on and off.the obgyn said that he expected the results to be normal.. he thinks that the bleeding is caused from not having enough progesterone in the HRT that I'm taking..and it may have to up the progesterone to stop the build up..I'm going out of town for a couple of weeks but will let you know what the results are when i get back..I'm hoping i get a negative on the results ..
