Dilation & Curettage
You will have an IV (needle) put in your arm or hand.
Your doctor will give you fluids and medicines through the IV. Some of these medicines will make you feel relaxed, sleepy, or numb during the procedure. After a D and C, your doctor or nurse will watch you for a few hours to make sure you don't have any problems. Most women get their monthly period within 4 to 6 weeks after a D and C.
