D&C (Dilation & Curettage)

D&C (Dilation & Curettage)D&C (Dilation & Curettage)

This simple method is the safest and most convenient way to end an early pregnancy. The procedure involves a gentle aspiration of the pregnancy tissue and possibly a mild scraping of the uterine cavity to ensure its completeness.

Today, the procedure is routine and considered safe. At Metropolitan Medical Associates, all early abortion procedures are performed in the facility’s operating rooms, under anesthesia of your choice, and take under 10 minutes. Recovery time is usually about 30 minutes before you will be discharged home.

Side Effects of D&C

There may be mild cramping, minimal bleeding, and it feels much like menstrual cramps. Approximately 98% of our patients choose to have anesthesia. Usually you can go home and resume normal activities in the next day or two. We require another office visit 2 weeks later, which is included as part of our service.
