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
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.
