Need the uploaded report.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I need to look at the ultrasound scan images.
Please upload the report to me, only then can I comment further.
If there are clots in the uterus, yes, a D and C is required.
But it also depends on the size of clot.
Sometimes, it may have got passed out on its own, and then only a thin stripe is seen, wherein no D and C is required.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.
