Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

It sounds like you had what we might refer to as a "blighted ovum" which is a type of miscarriage. Anytime a D&C is done, it is always possible that the pregnancy was incompletely removed. This might present as irregular bleeding and cramping. You need to contact your OB/GYN and they need to perform an ultrasound and a followup HCG test.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
