Is it necessary to take sick leave after a uterine curettage?

By Zaira Salvador (embryologist).
Last Update: 12/23/2021

This depends on each woman and the cause of the curettage. In general, it is only recommended to rest the day of the intervention and, in some cases, also the following day, but it is common for the woman to soon return to her daily routine.

However, in women who have suffered a miscarriage of several weeks or if the vaginal bleeding is very heavy, the doctor usually gives about a week off work. This will also depend on the woman's type of work and what her duties are.
