Hi.

The chance of pregnancy is usually very low right after a pregnancy and a D&C. However, this can depend on the cycle and how many months one was pregnant.

Do provide these details and I will be able to help you better.

Brief Answer:
Chances are too low

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

Based on the history you have shared, it's difficult to predict exact ovulation date after losing pregnancy or after D&C so chances of fertilization and getting pregnant are unpredictable however with recent D&C uterus isn't healed or prepared enough to facilitate implantation so chances of getting pregnant are too low.

Hope this has answered your query. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Regards

Brief Answer:
It depends upon priorities

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Yes with current scenario side effects like vaginal bleeding specially in recent D&C but if getting pregnant isn't your priority at all, you can take the pill but since the chances are already too low to get pregnant you can give it a chance as option of D&C will still be there. Regards
