Answer

Patients with chronic anovulation and recurrent bouts of abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) are at increased risk for endometrial hyperplasia and malignancy. Failure to perform a proper evaluation of the endometrium in such patients can be disastrous. Endometrial sampling can be accomplished easily in the office, with minimal requirements for sedation.
