Question about after a D&C...

I had a D&C last Tuesday and I've stopped bleeding as of Saturday but I'm still getting sharp pinches and cramps, and I'm still feeling like I need to take motrin. Is this normal? I thought the cramping and pinching would be over with after I was done bleeding.

  • I had one about 3 1/2 years ago. I remember it did take some time to heal. I say take the mlotrin for a few more days and if you don't feel better call the Dr. Don't you have a follow up apt.?

  • I had one done after my docs didnt remove all of my placenta and I had pain for several weeks after the D&C even after the bleeding stopped, but if it is something your concerned about go see your doc. Your the only one who really knows your body best!

  • I do but it's at 4 weeks after which I thought seemed kind of far out.

  • I had one about 7 yrs ago. Something I will never forget.I hurt for a good long while . Even after the bleeding. If you go in for a follow up and your Dr says there's nothing wrong and you feel it is get a second opinion. You know your body better than anyone else.
