Best Answer

Dilation and curettage is used for a number of purposes, and so the effects of not having a D&C depend on the cause.

If a woman has a D&C to end a pregnancy, the effects of not having one are pregnancy and delivery.

If a woman is having a D&C to treat or diagnose abnormal bleeding, she may develop cancer of the uterine lining if alternative methods of diagnosis and treatment aren't used.

If a woman is having a D&C after a miscarriage or due to a retained placenta after childbirth, the miscarriage may resolve on its own without treatment. The worst case is that the woman may suffer from bleeding or perhaps Sepsis or fatal infection of the blood.

D&C, also known as dilation and curettage, is a surgical procedure often performed after a first trimester miscarriage.

If you have a miscarriage can you just leave it alone?

A woman having a miscarriage has three options. She can wait and see if the pregnancy passes completely on its own, she can have a dilation and curettage to remove the pregnancy, or she can take the same medications used for medication abortion to pass the pregnancy. Many women will pass a miscarriage without any medication or procedure. If a woman chooses that option, she should see her health care provider weekly to make sure that the pregnancy passes completely and that there is no infection.

What happens to a woman's body if she does not have children?

A woman who does not have children will continue to grow and age. It would be better to ask what happens to a woman's body if she DOES have children. If you are female, then you have already experienced what happens to a woman's body without children passing through the birth canal. If not, then you have surely seen young women without children (high school girls are, after all, young women).
