Why have I not got my periods yet after D&C ?

I had a d&c in May (6 weeks preg) and havent had a period since. The doctor has checked my bloods and they have all come back fine. They have now asked me to go hospital for an ultrasound to check everything looks okay. We want to try for another baby.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
After D&C there could be a complication where the uterus gets filled with scar tissue which prevents the menstrual blood from coming out of the uterus. You can do as your Doctor to rule out these adhesions by getting an ultrasound. If the adhesions are present then they can be treated by removal but full results may not be expected and there may be some residual disease. You will need to rule out other causes of lack of menses as well because even hormonal disturbance, pregnancy can cause this.
