One of close relatives will be required to do it. Do you have any idea how much time it takes to recover after it?Are there any complications involved?

I had a D&C about 35 years ago, as I recall it was unpleasant but not awful, and recovery was a few days of lessening cramps and spotting. It was for an odd tissue build up, not an abortion, so there was no hormonal weirdness to deal with.
And it was a looooong time ago, procedures are probably much more refined and drugs are better. :-)

I had the procedure some years ago, following a second-trimester miscarriage. There was some discomfort, but the experience really wasn’t all that bad.

I remember feeling much better after the D&C. My body hadn’t expelled all the uterine tissue during the miscarriage, so I kept having labor-like contractions and discharge. The D&C took care of that. I was back to 100% after about a day, and there were no complications.
