Hysteroscopy and D&C
  • Rest at home today and gradually increase your activity as tolerated. Do not drive a car or sign any legal documents today. Have someone drive you home. You may bathe or shower as desired with plain soap and water.
  • You can use a pad or tampons for vaginal bleeding. You may have some light bleeding or spotting for 7-10 days. If vaginal bleeding becomes abnormally heavy (saturating one pad repeatedly every 15 minutes) please contact Dr. Walker.
  • Intercourse should be avoided for 48 hours following your procedure.
  • Pain management at home: take Panadol 1g every 6 hours as required.
  • Disturbed menstrual pattern is common. If you are taking oral contraceptive pill you should continue to take it as usual.
