D & C (Dilation and Currettage)

D & C (Dilation and Currettage)

D&C stands for dilation and curettage. It’s a procedure that dilates the cervix so a small device can be inserted and scrape the lining of the uterus. This may be used as both a diagnostic and a therapeutic tool, depending on the patient and health circumstances. Common reasons for a D&C include abnormal menses and complications after childbirth or miscarriage.
