What does D&C mean? I see it referred to a lot, and I don't know what it means.

Dilation and curettage - D&C.......The gynaecologist opens (dilates) the cervix with instruments called dilators, and then inserts a hollow tube through the cervix. Suction is applied to remove the retained tissue. The procedure usually takes less than five minutes.

very similar, actually, to abortion, only I believe with abortion, it's reffered to as a d&e..."e" being "evacuation" D&C being for miscarriage.

You don't only get them with miscarriages. Sometimes your body just doesn't evacuate everything it's supposed to which can cause serious infections. It's not a big deal as far as I know. My mother had to have one after each birth.
