If you need one, your doctor will give you an Rx afterwards, or sometimes they give you an IV dose of one in the operating room.

I had a D&C last August and I was never given an antibiotic. If you need it, your dr will gove it to you.

After my D&C they gave me a prescription on Anitbiotics. They said that it was just a precaution. Mind you I was in an other cuntry and not at home at the time. my dr said that they will sometimes do that.

I have had 2 D&C's and was never given a RX, so I wouldn't worry about it, your doc will give you one if they feel the need.
