I made an emergency same-day appointment with my GP this morning to update her on everything that happened and how I've been feeling. She said the sharp pains aren't usual but she has had a few people come to her with them before after d and c and they have always resolved themselves and haven't been concerning . She didn't know what they were other than my body trying to work its way back to normal and when asked said its possibly everything moving back into place but she thought 12 weeks was a bit early for that as my uterus wouldn't have grown that much. So she didn't really know the cause! She wasn't worried about damage and didn't think I was infected but took a swab just in case and I am to take ibuprofen for inflammation. I am still worried about damage as these pains aren't explainable or the 'usual' crampy feelings expected after d and c and I'm sure no follow up in terms of fertility would have been done with those few people who have had them either... so my worrying mind is still worried and will be until if and when my regular periods return. I have always been a worrier unfortunately; I am writing down all my pains and bowel movements. If anyone else has had these pains then gone on to have a viable pregnancy afterwards I would love to hear from you to help put my mind at rest!
