  • Why are you having sex a week after getting a D&C? You haven't even ovulated yet.

  • Better yet... if you don't want to be pregnant, why are you not using protection?

  • You could get it if you want to be extra safe. It took me two months to get pregnant again after my miscarriage and D&C. You probably haven't ovulated but there is still room for the potential.

    Ignore the women above me with the attitudes.

  • If you don't want to be pregnant... yes. Cheaper than abortion. If you ovuiated or not IDK, but i do have a friend who was pregnant again before her first cycle following her D&C was due so it can happen. Not to mention that you are more fertile now than you were before. So it's really up to you. I'm sure the above poster were not trying to be rude. D&C is still a surgery and you should wait until your next cycle before you have sex due to risk of infection. And we all know if you're not trying to get pregnant you should be using some birth control.

  • Not trying to be rude- it is a legitimate question. A D&C is serious enough and can really wreak havoc on your body... then to turn right around and take the pills?

    That is putting A LOT of stress on your body.

    It would be far easier to just use some sort of protection.
