What Is The Post-curette Menstrual Cycle And IUD Insertion?
Good afternoon doctor, I want to ask, I have had a miscarriage and performed a curette after that I used the iud birth control, which I want to ask about the normal menstrual cycle after the curette and after the installation of the iud ??? Thank you.
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Curettage is a medical procedure performed on a woman's uterus. The aim is to clean the woman's uterus from everything that was not supposed to be there, and is usually done during a wine pregnancy, an empty pregnancy, and an incomplete miscarriage. This procedure is performed in the condition that the woman is anesthetized, and there is a special instrument that enters the uterus through the vagina and scraps the lining of the uterus, so that it is clean from foreign tissues.
When doing this dredging, it is not impossible there is a normal lining of the uterus that will also be dredged, because it is difficult to separate them. Therefore, among the side effects that are commonly found after this action is irregular or delayed menstruation. How long the delay is will depend again on how much or how deeply the uterine part has been eroded. The deeper, the body needs more time to restore its normal layers before finally experiencing menstruation.
Then regarding the installation of an IUD, if only the IUD alone, most likely no menstrual cycle will be affected. However, if the IUD contains hormones, then the menstrual cycle can be irregular or delayed further than this, because the hormones released by the IUD, or other contraceptives such as birth control pills and birth control, the performance is to disrupt the body's normal hormonal balance, so a common side effect is irregular menstruation.
So in your case, it would be better if you ask your obstetrician what type of IUD you are taking and when you can expect yourself to menstruate again. What is clear, if you still do not menstruate 1-2 months after the action of curettage, it can still be said to be normal. Meanwhile, what is important for you is to adopt a healthy lifestyle by avoiding stress and cigarette smoke, maintaining an ideal body weight, eating nutritionally rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, and getting enough rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
