My m/c was last sunday and had d&c monday night. My Ob has asked me to get hCG levels checked because there weren't any products of conception found in the histology samples, so just to make sure the preg wasn't ectopic. I've just gone and seen him today (unscheduled) because I started getting pain yesterday, 2 days after op, whereas I had absolutely no pain when I woke up from the op. It's gettting quite bad, esp when I'm not lieing down. (I actually logged on to see if I can find info on pain after D&C, so good to see your post).
As for the reason for m/c, sure, ask, but he might not know. According to mine, a lot of m/c is due to chromasomal abnormalities, which happens by chance. As it was my first m/c it doesn't mean i'll be likely to get another one. They can check for abnormalities if the embryo was sent to histology, but in my case, they didn't have it, so we will never know if it was a chromasomal defect.
My follow up appointment is in 6 weeks time! I was told bleeding can be upto 2 weeks and pain 5-7 days.
All the best.
