Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Curettage is a procedure to 'cleanse' the uterus which is performed when certain tissue remains in the uterus that cannot come out on its own. Conditions that can be treated with a curettage include incomplete miscarriage, blighted ovum and wine pregnancy.
In general, because a curette can also erode the lining of the uterus, it takes time for women who have had a curettage to start menstruating again, especially with heavy bleeding. But in your case, if the IUD that you put on also secretes hormones, then the bleeding may also be triggered by changes in hormone levels in the body.
In essence, you should first pay attention to your menstrual flow for at least the next 1 month. If the bleeding continues to make you pale, weak, accompanied by unbearable abdominal pain, then you can take paracetamol to relieve pain by reading the instructions for use, while immediately checking yourself back to the gynecologist. But when it's back to normal, then you don't need to go back immediately.
Meanwhile, avoid excessive activity, drink plenty of water and consume nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
