Dilatation and Curettage in Indore

Dilatation and Curettage Procedure in Indore

Dilatation and Curettage (D&C) is a common gynecological procedure used to diagnose and treat various uterine conditions. It involves dilating the cervix and scraping or suctioning tissue from the lining of the uterus. This procedure is often performed to investigate abnormal uterine bleeding, remove remaining tissue after a miscarriage, or clear out the uterine lining. At our clinic in Indore, we provide safe and effective D&C procedures, ensuring the highest standards of care and comfort for our patients.

Benefits & Causes

  • Diagnostic Clarity: D&C helps in obtaining a tissue sample from the uterus, which can be analyzed to diagnose conditions such as uterine fibroids, polyps, or cancer.
  • Treatment of Abnormal Bleeding: The procedure can treat heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding by removing the thickened lining of the uterus.
  • Management of Miscarriage: D&C is used to remove tissue after a miscarriage to prevent infection or heavy bleeding.
  • Relief from Symptoms: The procedure can provide relief from symptoms such as pelvic pain and abnormal uterine bleeding.

Causes for D&C:

  • Abnormal Uterine Bleeding: To diagnose or treat heavy, prolonged, or irregular menstrual bleeding.
  • Post-Miscarriage Care: To remove retained tissue after a miscarriage.
  • Endometrial Hyperplasia: To treat the thickening of the uterine lining.

Frequently asked questions

The D&C procedure is typically performed under anesthesia, so you should not feel pain during the procedure. Some cramping and mild discomfort may occur after the procedure, but this can be managed with pain relief medication.

Recovery time varies among individuals, but most patients can resume normal activities within a few days. It is advisable to avoid strenuous activities and intercourse for at least two weeks or as directed by your doctor.

While D&C is generally safe, there are potential risks, including infection, heavy bleeding, or uterine perforation. Our team takes all necessary precautions to minimize these risks and ensure a safe procedure.

A D&C typically does not affect fertility. However, if the procedure is performed multiple times, there may be a slight risk of scarring within the uterus. It is important to discuss any concerns with your doctor before the procedure.
