Would you be able to have another baby if 3 years ago you became pregnant and lost the baby and had to have a DNC?

Yes you can get pregnant again. My friend had a miscarriage and DNC and 1 month later found out she was already 3 weeks pregnant again. She gave birth to a healthy baby. Don't worry about it too much. I agree with the above answer, I had a miscarriage with no d&c, 2 years later i got pregnant and had a healthy baby boy. 2 years after that I got pregnant and had another miscarriage WITH a d&c and waited a year to get pregnant again (all my doctors recommened waiting at least a year to get pregnant again after a miscarriage. I got pregant and recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl! Providing the D & C was straightforward there is no reason why you should not have a baby quite normally. There are no guarantees though.

How is the process of D and C done?

D & C stands for Dilatation and curettage A dilatation and curettage (D&C) is an operation performed on women to scrape away the womb lining. The cervix (neck) of the uterus (womb) is dilated using an instrument called a dilator. The endometrium (lining of the womb) is then lightly scraped off using a curette. This spoon-shaped instrument can be used to remove diseased tissue, treat abnormal bleeding or to obtain a specimen for diagnostic purposes.

How long after you miscarry is the dnc done?

typically, after the doctor tells you that you are going to have a miscarriage, he/she will have you wait up to two weeks to see if you can pass the baby naturally. after that time period, you report back to your doctor and they will schedule the d & c. Personally, i waited four weeks after i found out the sac had collapsed just to see if i could miscarry naturally. I was only 5 weeks and they say it is much easier to miscarry naturally being so early in my pregnancy. I just had the D & C two days ago and i feel totally fine. They put me to sleep and it felt like 5 minutes later i was in recovery. I went home the same day after a good hospital meal and a prescription for antibiotics to keep from heavy bleeding and infection. I am so sorry about your loss and good luck!

Dilation and Curettage. Essentially scraping out the uterus. This is what they do for therapeutic abortions, also in cases of spontaneous abortion (miscarrage), endometriosis, retained placenta, and I'm sure for other reasons as well.

How long does a D and C take?

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.

AnswerI lost a lot of blood in my op and had blood Transfusion Answeri 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 AnswerI 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.

Pregnancy varies for individuals. It may happen quickly, sometimes it may takes months or even longer. Don't become discouraged - it will happen when you least expect it so in the meanwhile relax and have fun trying!!

Good Luck.

How soon can i get pregnant after a dnc?

Im assuming you mean a D&C (Dialation and curettage) so from experience, you can start trying for a baby as soon as you stop bleeding. I had a D&C after a miscarriage but once the bleeding had stopped it only took me three cycles to conceive again and I had no problems with the pregnancy either. Just take note that if you're fortunate enough to get pregnant in your first cycle you won't know when to take a test so watch what you eat and take a daily suppliment of folic acid so you won't harm the foetus. Hope this helps! xx

Can you get pregnant in six weeks after a dnc?

You must be really worried. This question is on here like 4 times. I know that you are probably stressed out beyoned all else. If you think that you are pregnant, make a doctor appointment and have them do a blood test to see. Good luck and God Bless:)

Is there a pill that will perform a DNC after a miscarriage?

I am so sorry for your loss. There is a pill that will induce a miscarriage for a "missed abortion" or blighted ovum. The pill is called methotrexate and it makes your uterus contract and empty it's contents most times. An actual D&C procedure the doctor goes in and gently scrapes the lining of your uterus and pregnancy tissue out. You can choose either option, it is up to you and you should discuss with your doctor. Good luck.

A dead body produces bacteria that could cause a infection. If you leave a decomposing fetus in a body the bacteria could cause a infection in the uturus that could lead to infertility or death if not treated immediatly.
