Endometrial biopsies are obtained for a number of reasons that include abnormal uterine bleeding in certain age groups, incomplete abortions, or suspected neoplasia and the endometrium may be sampled prior to certain procedures to treat infertility to determine the phase of the cycle to guide further tests or treatments [1].
Conclusion: In this study frequency of endometrial hyperplasia was 13.17% in perimenopausal women with abnormal uterine bleeding. Abnormal uterine bleeding occurring in perimenopausal age is alarming and needs thorough evaluation including endometrial sampling, as it could be the only clinical manifestation of endometrial hyperplasia, a precursor of endometrial cancer.
A D&C may also be used to diagnose abnormal uterine bleeding. It is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.
