Thanks for writing to us.
If you have been bleeding for whole 8 weeks after your D&C it means that there must have been some retained products left inside.
You need to consult your doctor who did the D&C and go for an ultrasound scan to rule out the presence of any products left inside the uterus.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
