  • procedure should be done one week after end of menstruation
  • explain to the patient about the procedure and its purpose
  • let the patient to lie down in lithotomy position with foot on the stirrup
  • Doctor nibbles tissue with the use of biopsy forceps( forceps instrument with teeth) There is no need of anesthesia because cervix has no pain receptor and patient does not experience pain when nibbling tissue. Some bleeding is expected from the site of nibbling tissue so, pressure dressing like packing is inserted.
  • cervical tissue is preserved in 10%formalin and labeled properly before sending to laboratory for examination
