What are the side effects of a uterine curettage?

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

The symptoms or side effects of curettage are few. In general, there is vaginal bleeding during the days following the intervention, which may be accompanied by cramping in the pelvic area and back pain.

In spite of this, the woman can live a normal life the day after the curettage is performed, since painkillers relieve these discomforts.
