Your doctor will gently insert a speculum to open the walls of your vagina. Another device is used to open and widen your cervix to allow your doctor to access your uterus. You doctor will insert the curette through your vagina, cervix, and into your uterus. A curette is a long thin instrument with a loop on the end. Your doctor will used the curette to remove the inner lining of your uterus and collect the tissue for examination.
You may resume your regular activities usually within a day or two of your procedure. You may experience cramps, back pain, and bleeding for a few days.
