A little anatomy

Uterus - a muscular organ designed for childbearing. The shape of the uterus resembles a pear with a cavity inside. This cavity communicates with the vagina through the cervical canal (which is carried out through curettage). The uterus has three layers: serous (outside), muscle and mucous (endometrium). The endometrium during the menstrual cycle undergoes certain changes to prepare for implantation of a fertilized egg. If conception has not occurred, there is a rejection of the mucous membrane - menstruation.

During scraping the removed endometrium, but not all, but only its surface (functional) layer.

By a functional layer located basal or germ layer from which further increases the new mucosa. Often held separate diagnostic curettage, which is first in the endocervical curettage Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person  Cervical canal - the path traversed by every person
