Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thanks for your question.  Not sure what your doctor thinks the cause for your titled uterus is. 

An endometrial biopsy is done to:

  • Check for cancer of the uterus. For example, an endometrial biopsy may be done to help determine the cause of some abnormal Pap test results.
  • Find the cause of heavy, prolonged, or irregular uterine bleeding. It is often done to find the cause of uterine bleeding in women who have gone through menopause.
  • See whether the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is going through the normal menstrual cycle changes.

It's best to talk to your doctor and know the reasons she or he feels it's necessary to do a biopsy.

Here's an article and video that can help.
