About Dilation and Curettage

Dilation and curettage, also referred to as D&C, is a procedure performed to diagnosis and treat problems with the uterus. The procedure can help to diagnose uterine cancer, the cause of heavy bleeding, and is also performed as part of the process for diagnosing the cause of infertility. In addition to be performed for diagnosis purposes, the procedure is also performed to treat uterine polyps, remove parts of the placenta which may remain in the uterus after childbirth, remove fibroid tumors, and remove tissue that may be causing bleeding or infection.

The procedure involves dilating the cervix to gain access to the uterus and clearing the uterus out by scraping the tissue out using an instrument known as a curette. The procedure is usually performed under a general anesthetic and may sometimes be performed in combination with other procedures such as hysteroscopy.
