My husband and I found out by u/s that we lost our baby at 10w yesterday due to a subchronic hemmorage (or something like that). After going through an awful m/c five years ago, I vowed that i would never due it again, so I will be having a D&C tomorrow. Just curious if anyone has been through one and can give me a heads up as to what to expect (pain, recovery, etc.)
Thanks so much.

I'm so sorry for your loss. We had a blighted ovum a few months ago and I had a D&C at 7wks. The procedure itself was painless, and I actually didn't have any pain afterwards, either. I had very minimal bleeding right after the procedure. However, about 3-4 days later, that's when the more heavy bleeding (like AF) started... still not painful, but heavier. I think that's when my hormones dropped enough that my body realized it was time to start shedding everything. Overall, the D&C itself was pretty painless. I think the heavy bleeding lasted about 5-6 days or so... kind of like a longer AF. The day of my D&C I stayed home to rest, but I was able to go to work and stuff the next day.

However, I did have the complication of retained tissue... after the heavy bleeding stopped, I was still spotting/light bleeding for about 2 months. After about a month and a half, a little bit of tissue came out (sorry, TMI). Then a couple weeks later a little more came out. Then the bleeding finally stopped. I was concerned that I'd need a second D&C to get the retained tissue out, but after 2 months it finally resolved itself. I don't think this is a very common thing, but it does happen because the D&C is a blind procedure, so it can be hit or miss as to whether everything comes out or not.

Good luck and I hope you start feeling better soon!

I have not had a D&C, but just wanted to pass along my sympathies for your loss. I hope you are home and resting and have a quick recovery. Take care and best wishes.
