How soon can you become pregnant after dilation and curettage? How soon will your body start releasing eggs again?
Depends why: Often a d & c may be done under sedation with Propofol and other meds such as versed or fentanyl. The gyn doctor may use local anesthesia around the cervix.

The ob/gyn and anes doctors will decide the best plan. ...Read more

10-20 minutes: It takes longer to prepare than to do. Once you've received a light anesthetic (or local injection) it's under 5 minutes to measure the length of the cervix and dilate it.

If it's not pregnancy related, a camera (hysteroscopy) can be used to visualize the uterine cavity and this part can more than double the amount of time. ...Read more
