Dilation and Curettage (D&C)

Dilation and Curettage

There are basically three options when faced with a miscarriage, and we chose option #3 – a D&C. I don’t think a D&C is the right choice for everyone, but it was the best choice for our situation. And I guess there is no need to sugar coat it – it hurts. At one point, the doctor had to administer a local anesthesia around the cervix which stung like a bitch. There were a couple of other really painful moments, but it didn’t last. The procedure took about 10 minutes, and then I was sent home with heavy cramping that disappeared the next day. Honestly, I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that has happened. I know it will take time to fully accept this miscarriage and process my own conflicting emotions . . . I just . . . I just need more time.
