Dilatation and Curettage - Post Operative Care

Postoperative care involves the precautions that we need to follow after a Dilatation and Curettage (D&C) procedure.

The precautions that need to followed after the surgery are:

  Some cramping or mild abdominal discomfort is considered usual after a D&C, consult the doctor if the pain is severe.

  Medications should be taken as per the prescription of the doctor.

  Ensure to take the entire course of antibiotic.

  Refrain from the use of internal tampons and sexual intercourse for about a week or as advised by your doctor.

 Use sanitary napkins during this time period.

  If there are any signs of infection such as fever, pain or discharge consult the doctor immediately.
