Blood Comes Out Again After The Curette Blood Stops, Is Menstruation?

After that, for 2 weeks, there were spots / bleeding and on the 14th it was clean and no more spots occurred. But yesterday on January 29 I was bleeding again. At first a little. But these 2 days are quite a lot. Is it menstruation or what? Mhn the explanation. Thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Curettage is a procedure to clean residual / abnormal tissues from the uterine wall with a curette (a spoon-like device), which usually starts with a procedure to dilate (dilate) the cervix. Within a few days after this procedure is performed, the patient may complain of abdominal pain / cramps. Because the procedure is carried out in the cleansing of the uterine wall, patients usually experience bleeding within a few days after the procedure.
Generally, the first menstruation after a miscarriage occurs about 4-6 weeks later. In the first post-pregnancy menstruation, some patients may experience menstruation with a greater volume and feel more painful than usual. The scent from the remaining tissue that comes out with menstrual blood can also smell stronger.
Do not rule out the possibility that the condition of bleeding from the genitals that you experience is menstruating because of miscarriage and curettage has passed about 4 weeks before. However, to be sure, you should consult directly with a specialist obstetric and gynecologist. A return visit to the doctor who treats you is also useful for monitoring the progress of your condition post-suretase. Do not delay the doctor if the bleeding is so heavy, abdominal pain with great intensity, or an unpleasant odor from the blood / tissue coming out of the genitals.
As a recommendation, make sure you maintain the hygiene of the female area by changing the pads regularly as needed. To enrich your horizons, you can read articles about post-pregnancy menstruation. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
