Dilation and Curettage (D&C) for Bleeding During Menopause
What To Expect After Surgery
The recovery period following D&C is short, and most women are able to return to normal activities within 1 to 2 days.
During the recovery period:
- Mild pelvic cramping may occur for a few hours.
- A slight vaginal discharge may occur.
- Intercourse, douching, and the use of tampons are not usually permitted for 2 weeks.
- Your next menstrual period may be early or late.
