Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Curettage is a procedure for taking tissue from the uterine wall which can be used for diagnostic purposes (eg in cases of abnormal vaginal bleeding) or therapeutic (eg in cases of miscarriage). Due to the removal of uterine lining tissue, menstruation will generally run irregularly within 1 to 3 months after curettage. This is because it takes time for your uterus to recover to its pre-curette state. In addition, the consumption of post-curettage drugs and hormonal conditions that have not been balanced can also affect this condition.
Normal menstruation is between 21 and 35 days per month. The distance between your periods that is too close, besides being caused by post-curettage recovery factors, can also be influenced by stress, fatigue, activities and sports you do, improper eating patterns, and so on.
You should do the following efforts so that menstruation returns to normal after curettage:
Eat healthy and nutritious food, containing lots of vitamin K and iron Drink plenty of 2 to 3 liters per day Reduce activities that are too strenuous within 1 to 3 months after curettage Take good care of intimate organ hygiene Don't stress too much Don't take drugs carelessly without supervision doctor Limit sexual intercourse as long as there is still heavy vaginal bleeding. However, if menstrual bleeding occurs very much (more than 10 pads per day), prolonged (more than 2 weeks), vaginal discharge that smells bad, or also severe abdominal pain, then do not feel free to go back to the obstetrician for further evaluation via ultrasound, okay?
I hope this helps.
