Three years ago,I had dilatation and curretage procedure by my gynecologist. I had a bleeding for 2-3 weeks a month and some blood clots . Blood count was done . My hemoglobin dropped to 6 and the normal is 12 so my doctor did the operation right away after pre operation care done by the nurse. Histopathological done and thanks God there is carcinomic findings. It was just a necrotic decidual tissues.
To all women out there, if we felt or noticed something abnormal we must consult our gynecologist right away like abnormal menstruation - profuse or scanty or painful menstruation, feeling of something unusual. Our reproductive system is prone to cancer so must make a habit of regular check up.
