Hello and welcome to HCM,

An endometrial biopsy o curetting is a procedure in which a instrument is inserted into the uterine cavity.
A bit of endometrial lining is taken with the help of the instrument and is send for histopathological examination.
This endometrial lining is examined under the microscope.
Any abnormality in the endometrial lining is determined by this examination.
The symptoms of lower abdominal pain and fever are suggestive of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or infection of the genital tract.
Pain during sexual intercourse also suggests PID.
Menstrual irregularities can be seen in cases of PID, hormonal imbalance, etc.

The biopsy will help in picking up the abnormality in the endometrial lining.
Consult your gynecologist for this investigation.
Thanks and take care
