Dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure to investigate and treat problems with your womb such as heavy or abnormal bleeding, abnormal growths (polyps) or cancer of the womb.
What happens during a dilation and curettage (D&C)?
A D&C is usually performed under general anaesthetic. It is sometimes performed along with a hysteroscopy. Your consultant will widen the neck womb (cervix) using either medication or small surgical instruments. An instrument called a curette will be used to scrape away the lining of your womb.
Recovery from dilation and curettage (D&C)
Your length of hospital stay will depend on the level of surgery performed and your recovery.
