    D & C?

    I had a miscarriage 5 weeks ago. Today, my doctor wants a D&C done because a week ago I started bleeding again and my hCG level was 45.

    My ultrasound 4 weeks ago showed a 18mm uterus lining. 1 week ago another ultrasound showed a non-smooth uterus lining 10mm thick. I'm just wondering, what if today my uterus lining has become even thinner...and what if the doctor thinks the lining is still 10mm thick and scrape out more lining than she should.

    My question is, how do they know how much uterus lining to scrape out during a D&C?

    Are people usually prescribed antibiotics after a D&C to prevent an infection?
