Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Sometime oral pill might not fully effective and there can be chance of incomplete abortion.

Dilatation and curretage is effective method of abortion as curettage done in that.
. So it can be reliable method.

Still it's advisable to perform Trans vaginal USG after few days to check abortion is complete or not.

Hope this solves your concern

Take care

Had a D and C 12 days ago. Not for miscarriage. Abnormal bleeding and polyps. No cancer found. Had light bleeding first 4 days then started getting darker red still only used one pad daily. I was due for period today. Bleeding started getting more heavy yesterday changing pad about every 2-3 hours. Seems like starte of period. Is it normal to go ahead and get period after the surgery on time? Just worried its possibly not my period and something gone wrong.
