I recently had a D and C and the surgery itself took less then 15 minutes. The prep time (ie: meeting with the doctor, nurses, anesthesiologist) took about an hour and the recovery time was about 1-1.5 hours. It was very quick and was not very painful. There was mild bleeding for a few days but not more than what you would have with a regular period.


I lost a lot of blood in my op and had blood Transfusion


i bleed really heavy and passed big clots after i lost our baby i was about 2 1/2 month along after my d n c i had no bleeding or pain


I was bleeding heavy before d&c, procedure was very quick. However afterward I continued to bleed heavily and cramp for about a week. Only difference was that I wasn't passing clots. I ovulated 2 weeks after the surgery.
