Had my D&C yesterday

I had my D&C yesterday.  It was much easier than I expected. I am really glad that I decided to go that route instead of waiting for it to happen naturally.  Now I can move on instead of being stressed each day about whether or not that was going to be the day.

I haven't had any pain from the procedure at all.  Not even any cramping.  I'm not bleeding heavily, just spotting a little.  Other than being tired, I feel pretty normal.

As hard as it is, it is a relief to know that it is over and I can move on.

Thanks for all of the support you ladies have given me through this.  As sorry as I am that any you have had to go through this, it is nice to know that there are people out there who understand.

    PGAL/PAL Welcome
  • I am glad to hear that you are feeling ok. I would highly recommend that you continue to take it easy for a few days, "doing too much" can result in increased bleeding. While the increased bleeding is nothing to worry about, emotionally it might feel like a setback, I know it did for me. So rest and be gentle on yourself for a few days. All the best.
