Dilation And Curettage - Is This Process Beneficial?

Dilation And Curettage - Is This Process Beneficial?

Dilation and curettage is a surgical procedure where the cervix (the lower part of uterus) is dilated and tissues are removed from the inside of the uterus. The procedure is usually done to treat heavy menstrual bleeding or clean the lining of the uterus after an abortion or miscarriage.

During the procedure, the cervix is dilated with medication and a thin surgical instrument is inserted through the vagina. This instrument is then used to scrape (curettage) the uterine tissues.

Reasons for Conducting the Procedure

Dilation and curettage is mostly done to either treat or diagnose certain uterine disorders. Dilation and curettage is recommended if your doctor needs to diagnose conditions such as:

1. Irregular uterine bleeding

2. Postmenopausal bleeding

3. Discovery of unnatural endometrial cells while conducting a common test for cervical cancer

Sometimes, the doctor can take a sample tissue from the uterus and perform tests on it to check for the following conditions:

1. Uterine cancer

2. Uterine polyps (abnormal tissue growth)

3. Endometrial hyperplasia (precancerous thickening of the uterine lining)

Dilation and curettage, when used for therapeutic purposes, is used in the treatment of the following conditions:

1. To clear away molar pregnancy; which is characterized by formation of tumours.

2. To treat heavy bleeding after childbirth; any remaining placenta in the uterus is removed.

3. To remove benign uterine or cervical polyps.

4. To clear away fibroids (benign tumours which form on the uterine wall)

5. To remove any tissue that could have been left behind after an abortion or miscarriage to prevent heavy bleeding or infection

What needs to be considered before opting for it?

The procedure of dilation and curettage is mostly safe. Complications from this procedure are rare, but some factors should always be taken care off.

1. The surgical instrument can perforate or poke a hole in the uterus. Sometimes, perforations can heal on their own; but if any organ or blood vessel gets damaged, then another surgery will be required.

2. The cervix can be damaged during the procedure. The doctor can stitch the wound close, or apply pressure on the wound to stop the bleeding.

3. Sometimes, there might be scar tissues on the wall of the uterus. This can cause irregular, painful or absent menstrual cycles, augment risks of infertility and future miscarriages.

Non Stress Test on Fetus - When To Go For It?

Non Stress Test on Fetus - When To Go For It?

Pregnancy and childbirth is one of the most important time in the life of a woman. It is a time to celebrate and yet be cautious as well, so that all goes well and the end of the pregnancy is a beginning of life for a baby. There are numerous ways of monitoring the health of the foetus during pregnancy. The non-stress test is one of the ways. Let us find out more about this: 

Heart rate monitoring: The non-stress test is basically concerned with the monitoring of the heart rate of the foetus. This is a prenatal test that is very commonly used in order to check the overall health and vitals of the baby while it is still in the womb. The test is essentially carried out to check how well the heart rate responds to the other movements carried out by the baby inside the womb. It is called a non-stress test because there is no external stimulation that may put pressure on either the heart rate or the movements of the baby.

Why: This test is usually recommended by the doctor when there is an increased risk of losing the foetus due to complications. This test is conducted from 36th week of the pregnancy and onwards till delivery. It is also done even when the patient is in labour.This test will usually show whether or not the baby needs extra test, monitoring or care. This test is essentially conducted to check the oxygen supply and is a non-invasive procedure that does not pose any serious physical risks or harm.
Fetal Hypoxia: This test will also show whether or not the baby is suffering from fetal hypoxia, which is a condition where the heart beat is disrupted, if the passage of oxygen is blocked due to some reason.

Conditions for non-stress test: The non-stress test may be conducted if the lady in question has lost or had complication in previous pregnancy. Also, if the mother has any other medical condition like diabetes or cardiovascular conditions, then this test is imperative. Decreased movement of the foetus may also prompt the doctors to take action and conduct this test as a cautionary measure.

Procedure: During the procedure, you will be asked to lie down on a reclining chair and two belts with monitors will be attached to your abdomen. The heart rate of the baby, as well as the movements, will then be studied once the monitors are switched on. These monitors are in turn attached to a screen, in order to take the reading. This test will take no more than twenty minutes. However, if there is no movement in the baby, then the test may continue for a little longer until the baby becomes more active.

Hi lybrate-user, these appear to be signs of an infection. Are you using adequate protection during intercourse? Ideally you should. I-pill can cause erratic bleeding patterns. You should do a pregnancy test if you have a delayed or a missed period. You can get in touch with me for further queries.

Avoid Emergency Contraceptive Pills

Avoid Emergency Contraceptive Pills
  • This is especially for the youngsters. Now a days, many young couples randomly use  Emergency Contraceptive Pills without understanding the implications.
  • Using cyclical pills is a much better and safer option.
  • These cyclical pills if taken methodically can actually be beneficial in many other ways in addition to providing contraception.
  • Cyclical pills keep the menstrual cycles regular, the amount of bleeding is lesser, pain is reduced significantly and these pills also help in protecting from STDs to some extent.

Hi lybrate-user, first you have to understand what exactly an iui means and why is it advised. From whatever history you have provided .your problem is with ovulation because of the pcos. Do you understand the implications of pcos. Have you done any tests. Send me the reports. I would like to have a look. Your husband's count and motility is good. You may not need an iui if you ovulate. Send your reports for a deailed analysis and further discussion. We can have an audio call or text consultation.

Hi lybrate-user. Miliana is a contraceptive. It will prevent a conception. Also 42 prolactin is not so very high so the dose of cabergolin need not be 0.5 I need to see all your reports and would need a detailed history as well. Amh is still ok .do not worry so much. U shall conceive soon if the right therapy is followed. U can contact me if you are keen to discuss further details.

Hi lybrate-user. What other tests have been done. Just doing a d&c does not have any bearing on fertility. The cause has to be first diagnosed. Please tell me the deails of the tests done so far for you and your husband. Once I get to see the reports we can have a detailed discussion on further course of action. Do not worry so much. If the right treatment is followed you shall conceive soon.
