In general, D&C is a safe procedure. As with any type of surgery, however, there are some risks involved.
If you have concerns, be sure to chat with your gynecologist doctor about the benefits and risks of having a D&C in your specific case.
Complications include things like:
- Bleeding that can be heavy
- Scar tissue (adhesions) inside the uterus
- Tearing of the cervix
- Perforation of either the uterus or bowel
You may have heard of Asherman syndrome as a possibility following D & C. This refers to the adhesions that can develop in the uterus after the procedure. The scar tissue may change your menstrual flow and potentially lead to infertility. This condition is rare and can be treated with surgery.
