How soon after a miscarriage should a D&C be performed if necessary?
A D&C is done to complete the miscarriage. In other words, if there has been incomplete emptying of your womb spontaneously, a doctor will mechanically remove the rest of the products of conception to stop bleeding or prevent infection. When in doubt, doctors usually lean to doing the D&C. It can be done at any time that it’s felt there’s been incomplete emptying, and sometimes this diagnosis takes time to make.
