ObGyn Appropriate Timing of Dilation and Curretage?

What is the appropriate timing for performing dilation and curettage for endometrial sampling ?
I have problem with this excerpt from Kaplan gynae. Can't understand it well
Quote:
It should be scheduled
during the week after the end of menses after prophylactic antibiotics to prevent causing
a recurrent acute salpingitis.

i think its cos the endometrium is shed. so u hv a relatively clear cavity.

days 1-7---- there is bleeding n shedding.. so obv cant do

days 14-28---- endometrium has reached its full thickness, thick secretions under progesterone from the Cx/ oocyte in the fallopian tube?

so avoided

(im not sure but i think these are the reasons i remember reading somewhere)
