Obstetrics & Gynecology

In brief: Concerned

I am concerned about the possibility of postoperative infection.
Some women can develop an infection in the uterus, especially after a D&C. I ask my patients to abstain from intercourse for 2-4 weeks, depending on their surgical indications. Please see you health care provider to discuss your concerns and have an evaluation. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap!
