  • I did last year because of a miscarriage. I was sedated so I did not feel a thing. Afterward I had some minor cramping as if I had PMS. I was given narcotic pain medicine that I will admit that I did not take for the pain from the procedure but for the emotional pain. It numbed me for a week or so.

  • I had one with my third m/c. I don't remember physical pain other than the cramping from the m/c.

  • I had one after my son was stillborn. During the procedure I was sedated. Lots of cramping but nothing motrin didn't help with.

  • I had one after a miscarriage, but like the other women I, too, was completely put under due to the fact they were also do a laparoscopy at the same time. The lap caused pain anyway, so I'm not sure how much was due to the lap or the D&C. It's definitely not fun and wouldn't recommend it. Very emotional and heartbreaking.
