Dilation and Curettage
This is a type of procedure is often performed in conjunction with a hysteroscopy. The cervix is typically dilated to allow instruments to be passed into the uterine cavity. Once inside the cavity, samples of the uterine lining can be obtained, polyps/fibroids removed, or an endometrial ablation performed. Any sample that is removed can be sent to pathology for further analysis. The results are usually available within 7-10 days. Post-procedure restrictions are the same as for hysteroscopy.
