Thanks for your query.

Let me reassure you that procedure you underwent was essential to remove retained products of conception. Other wise it would have lead to infection & other complications which is detrimental for further reproduction.

D&C is commonly performed procedure for abortion in India.

Your gynecologist has prescribed you right dose of antibiotics. Let me reassure you that it is right dose of antibiotics which is given after procedure even though preanesthetic medications and doses are not administered as they are not always necessary. You have adequate antibiotic cover.

If done by a qualified expert, D&C is not associated with any complications later in life. Your future chances of getting pregnancy wont be compromised. Dont worry about it.

Your cervical canal also wont get adhesions due to this procedure. So please be relaxed and take rest. Everything is going on in right direction.

Hope I have answered all your queries. Please write back if you have any additional concerns.

Wishing you good health.
