Anyone had a Pipelle Biopsy

Hi All,

I had a 3rd Lletz treatment yesterday done under GA for CIN3 and cGIN. Reading my discharge notes it said I also had a Pipelle biopsy done. I am just wondering if anyone else had had one of these and what it’s for as it wasn’t mentioned to me.


I hope you are doing okay. I just came across your post and I’m afraid I don’t have any answers for you but I just wondered if you had found out what this is? Xx

Hi, i had pipelle sampling for cgin. Pipelle is a device that enters the uterus and cervical canal and scraps some tissue from these areas without having the need to undergo a surgery with anesthesia. It is a tool for taking uterine and cervical tissues for biopsy.
