Dilation and curettage procedure is usually done as an outpatient procedure. Few hours before the procedure, the doctor will start the process of dilating the cervix and is generally done when the cervix needs to be dilated more than in a normal D&C procedure, such as during pregnancy terminations.
Ask someone to drop you home after the procedure as you may feel drowsy after the anaesthesia wears off.
During the procedure, the doctor will ask you to lie on your back on an examination table while your legs rest in stirrups. Then the doctor will insert an instrument called a speculum into the vagina to see the cervix and will insert dilators into the cervix to slowly dilate the cervix until it is opened properly. After that, the doctor will remove the dilation rods and inserts an instrument called a currette that removes uterine tissue
After the procedure, the doctor will ask you to stay in the recovery room for a few hours so that the doctor can monitor any complications. You may go through usual side-effects such as mild cramping and light bleeding or spotting. You can continue with your day-to-day activities within a day or two. Avoid using tampons and having sexual intercourse for a few days.
