Default Uterine Biopsy

Hello, Dr.

I am scheduled to take a beta 3 integrin test (uterine biopsy) 9-11 days after ovulation. A blood pregnancy test is required immediately before the test.

I asked my nurse if it's ok to try getting pregnant naturally this cycle, but she said NO and that the preg test was just a precaution. I don't quite understand why I wouldn't be able to try this cycle if I need to take the preg test anyway. I am not young and don't want to waste a cycle.

Would you please advise if it is alright that I try before the biopsy? If not, why is it? I will be ovulating in 2 days - please help....

Thank you very much.
