Should you expect bleeding after a D & C?

Answer

Dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure to remove tissue from inside a woman's uterus for diagnostic or treatment purposes. According to the Mayo Clinic, it is normal to experience mild cramping and spotting or light vaginal bleeding for a few days after the procedure.

The Mayo Clinic explains that D&C is a procedure used to diagnose and treat certain uterine conditions, including heavy bleeding. It is also used to clear the lining of the uterus following a miscarriage or abortion. The process involves a doctor using a small instrument to widen the cervix, followed by the removal of uterine tissue with a surgical instrument called a curette. Although mild bleeding is relatively common after this procedure, women experiencing heavy bleeding are advised to contact their doctor.
