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. If it's an emergency situation where the patient doesn't have an empty stomach, if the patient is extremely obese, or if there is heavy bleeding, general anesthesia may be safest. The ob/gyn and anes doctors will decide the best plan. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
