Reasons for Procedure

  • A D&C is usually done to determine what condition is causing abnormal bleeding. Some conditions that may cause abnormal bleeding are:
  • Miscarriage
  • Irregularities in menstrual bleeding
  • Endometrial polyps
  • Abnormal endometrial thickening
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Sometimes a D&C is done to stop the bleeding, rather than to diagnose why you are bleeding. This is sometimes done after a miscarriage or after a delivery when all of the placenta did not come out like it was supposed to.
  • A D&C is not advised if you have:
  • Infection of the uterus
  • Infection of the fallopian tubes
