Are you experiencing heavy bleeding but are unsure of what is causing the issue? In some cases, the cause of the issue may be uterine cancer, uterine polyps, or a condition known as endometrial hyperplasia.

In order to diagnose the issue, obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Mary Geldernick can perform a dilation and curettage (D&C). This diagnostic test involves inserting a speculum into the vagina so that Dr. Geldernick has a clear view of the area. A series of rods that increase in diameter will be placed used to dilate the cervix. Once the area is properly dilated, a special instrument will be used to remove a sample of the uterine tissue for testing.

Once the sample has been analyzed, Dr. Geldernick will be able to provide you with a diagnosis for what is causing your heavy bleeding and will figure out an appropriate treatment plan for managing the issue. If you are in need of a C&D, contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
