A 30-year-old female asked:

what happens if we participate in intercourse before 3 months of miscarriage without d&c?

Probably nothing: There is a general feeling among medical providers that the risk of having another miscarriage may be higher if a women gets pregnant again before several normal periods have occurred. This is debatable. Just engaging in intercourse should not cause a problem all on its own.

Miscarriage --d and c or pass naturally?

Usually naturally: Most miscarriages will pass naturally without requiring a d&c. Follow up pregnancy tests should be done to make sure everything has cleared. However, if the process is dragging out too long or if bleeding is excessive a D&C may be required.

Perhaps: It is common after misacrriages adn d&c's to have a differen tflow pattern to yor menses. If, however, you notice a markedly lighter and shorted amount of bleeding after a d&c, you should see you gyn to make sure th elining of the womb ("the endoemtrial lining") has nto been damaged by the D&C whic is an uncommon but know n side effect of d&c's.

What is a D&C: D&C stands for dilatation and curettage. It is the process of dilating the cervix open and curetting (scraping) the lining of the uterus. This procedure is done when someone has a miscarriage but doesn't pass all the pregnancy tissue on her own. It is also used for some women when they have heavy bleeding or certain abnormal results on an ultrasound.
