i have just found out i had my 2nd miscarriage. i have a d&c scheduled for tomorrow morning. i'm kinda scared as last time i took the pills to get everything out. i am leaving the country on my honeymoon on saturday and want to have everything said and done before i leave. my questions are this: how long did it take to recover? are there any side effects i should be aware of? was there excessive bleeding afterwards? if yes how long? do you think i'll be up and functionable for work come thursday?

Joleenb- i'm so sorry for your loss and right before you honeymoon too! ugh As far as the D&C goes, i've had two now. I've had two different experiences with them...after my first D&C, i spotted on and off for about five days, only enough that i had to wear a panty liner and had my period 32 days later. You are NOT allowed to wear tampons! I know you are going on your honeymoon so just keep that in mind if you are going to a beach. Swimming is a NO NO too! After a D&C your body needs to heal and swimming, oh and s_x and tampons are all big NO's for two at least weeks!!! After my second D&C I spotted/bled for three weeks (very different from my first one). I had that on January 31 of this year and i am still waiting for my period almost eight weeks later. I never had excessive bleeding with either of them. I also never had any cramps either. Most doctors say it's okay to go back to work the next day. Your doctor should give you a list of things not to do and when it's safe to resume things. Good luck!
