is there a such thing as a patial dnc my friend said she had one but she lies alot so i wasnt sure
If memory serves me right a full dnc is for an abortion and a partial one is for when you have a miscarriage.
There is something like partial D&C. It is done after someone has had a miscarriage and they need to remove whatever that remained behind. For more information, go to http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/dilation-and-curettage/MY00345.
