Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern for fertility after two D+C’s. It is true that an uncomplicated D+C cannot effect fertility but in rare cases, multiple dilations and curettages can cause some scarring at the top of the cervix or inside the uterus. This may effect fertilization or the mating of the egg and the sperm.

If you have any difficulty in conceiving then you can get a hysteroscopy done. In this a small camera is placed through your cervix into your uterine cavity which can be used to check for this problem and can usually repair the scar tissue at the same time.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health and waiting for your reply.

Hi Prathiba,

Sorry for the delay in my response.

The second D&C seems like a trouble, as you had to undergo surgical evacuation.

The risk is not major; I do not see a difficulty for you to conceive again. Ideally, you should be able to conceive normally now without any hindrance.

Hope for the best and positive things in life always.

All the best to you.
