Possible complications of uterine curettage

Possible complications of uterine curettage

Uterine curettage is a fairly simple and quick gynecological intervention. Even so, it is possible that a curettage may result in some complications such as the following:

  • Damage to the uterus such as perforations.
  • Uterine synechiae or Asherman's syndrome.
  • Infections in the uterus.
  • Hemorrhage.

However, the psychological state of the patient must also be taken into account, especially in the case of performing curettage for a miscarriage.
