User :   I had a miscarriage about 2 - 3 weeks ago and then my doctor did a dnc. Everything seemed to heal without any problems, but now in the last three days I have been experiencing a dull pain in my lower left abdomen which I feel more so as I sit down. At first I thought that this was just an ovulation pain that I have suffered from before but it has never gone on for so long. Is this something I should be worried enough about to go and see my doctor and what could it be?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi Dr , can you give me some advice?
Doctor :   Please give e a few moments to go through your query.
Doctor :   Ok.I have gone through your query.
Doctor :   May I know your age please /
User :   I'm 36
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Sorry for typing Caps
Doctor :   I typed it by mistake.
User :   No problem. I have one little boy who is 3 yrs old and since then a miscarriage this time last year and now this miscarriage.
Doctor :   Have you ever had any previous pregnancies or deliveries or miscarriages ?
User :   I had an emergency caesar when I had my little boy.
Doctor :   Ok.
Doctor :   Did you get an Ultrasound done after the DNC,And did the doctor tell you the necessity for an Ultrasound ?
User :   No, never had an ultrasound afterwards but I did have one done before...
Doctor :   I would recommend you to get an Ultrasound done as it is mandatory to get one after MTP or Medical Termination of Pregnancy or Abortion.
User :   Do you think it is possible the doctor may have done one in the theatre once the dnc was done as I wouldn't have been aware of this because he didn't mention it?
Doctor :   Please enquire with him.
User :   Ok, thanks for your help, I'll get hold of him for any further queries.
Doctor :   I would suggest you to get an USD Scan if not done.
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me.
Doctor :   Take care and have iron rich, vitaminized and protein rich diet.
