I've posted this before, but never got any resposes. Hopefully I will now.
I had a D&C almost 15 months ago when my DD#3 (15 months) was just 10 days old due to retained membranes after her birth. It's not something I want to go through again . Anyway, I thought it was weird that after the procedure, I NEVER had a single cramp, but did have bleeding for a few weeks later. I haven't had a period since then either.
I've joked to DH that they sucked my uterus out too. I've always had AF back by now, and am wooried that the D&C has affected my fertility somehow.
I would think you haven't had AF because of nursing, are you nursing?
I just had a D&C in Jan (missed m/c), and am now pregnant again. My cycle came back like clockwork, and I got pregnant that first cycle back.

I was not nursing at the time, and had a D and C because of a missed miscarriage and had no fertility problems. We got pregnant the second month we tried. Sorry I can't be of more help. My "guess" is that it has more to do with nursing than the D and C but who knows. Did they do a follow-up ultrasound after the D and C? I know they did with me and found more "products of conception" still there (after an infection and massive doses of antibiotics to clear it up ) and wanted me to have ANOTHER D and C...instead I went to an acupuncturist who helped me to get rid of everything else that was left instead of enduring a second D and C. Just a thought.
Hi there. I have had multiple D&Cs and none of them have ever affected my fertility. I agree, I think it might have more to do with nursing. I was still nursing my first at 10 months old when I found out I was pregnant with my second...I never even had a menstrual cycle. I would check with your OB/GYN if you are concerned. That way you can know for sure whether or not the D&C had anything to do with it. Good luck.
I had a D&C in Dec 06 for retained placenta, and again in Sept 07 for a m/c that wasn't following through. It hasn't affected my fertility, although they did tear my cervix and didn't tell me about it. : I passed a clot the size of a lemon and went to the doc, where they were like "Hey, why are there sutures in here?" Ummm, I don't know...
