Has anyone had this and NOT needed a D&C?
I'm almost 11 weeks PP and still bleeding on and off and losing a lot of stringy mucus and having cramping.
Just got back from the hospital after the doctors sent me there after a swab and blood test. They tried doing an ultrasound but my uterus is retroverted.
They also gave me a needle called sint something uterine? that will contract the uterus to expel anything.
I'm feeling pretty sick and crappy after it and they've said they're surprised I'm showing no sign of infection so far.
Just waiting on my results and to see what this injection does and they will decided if I definitely need a curette.

Yes, you just described me after bub no5. I expelled it all on my own and bleed for 12 weeks (from memory) I had lots of long/big meaty bits.

I had retained debris but I passed huge clots and large amounts of blood 1 week pp. they considered a d&c but didn't need one as it all passed over a few hours. Then just had normal pp bleeding til 5 weeks.

I'm not sure if I'm talking about the same thing but I was told I had a retained placenta. It was removed in theatre under general straight after bubs was born. Then I just had standard lochia for 6 weeks.

I had retained placenta which was stuck to an adhesion (due to endo) so it would not pass. I had the same symptoms as you and had a D&C it only took 30 minutes and the hospital were fine with me bringing bub in for the day (they admitted me back into the maternity ward). The midwife s looked after DS when I was in theatre I was not BFing but they said if I was they would bring him to recovery if he needed a feed, it wasn't a bad experience one of my friends from mothers group had a D&C the day before me for the same reason and she sat up in recovery and breast fed her bub within 10 minutes of the operation.

I have had it with all of my births and always needed a curette.

I had this with DD and didn't need a d&C nor got an infection. It was my first child and I knew nothing about c/s, so when I asked a c/s friend if she had this and she said yes, I thought it was normal I passed bits for 10 weeks and frankly I'm shocked I didn't end up with an infection.
