I got pregnant last year and miscarried. I then began having problems with my cycle. So I went to the doctor and she ran test and eventually had to do surgery to do a DNC and also removed cysts off my left ovary. When I went back she asked me if I was pregnant when she did my surgery. My question is is there anyway that it could be because of the miscarriage a few months before or was it that I was pregnant and didn't know that I was?
Hi! If you were my patient, the first thing I would do is ask your doctor why she asked you that question. Was there something unusual on the pathology report? It is pretty standard procedure most places I know of to do a pregnancy test immedialey pre-op. Usually while the patient is waiting. I would also ask if this was done. Depending on the answers to these questions, i could help you to sort out the issue. Usually tissue from a miscarriage would not persist for more than a few weeks. It is difficult to speculate without more information. Hope this helps! Dr B
