Here in Australia they automatically schedule you for a D&C if you were 9 weeks pregnant at the time of M/C... only because the risk of bleeding too much etc increases the more you go past that. (thats what i was told by my DR when we thought i'd M/C a 2nd time at 9 weeks)
Go & see your DR and ask if its normal etc..
I personally would ask for a D&C if they'd let me if the pain was so bad i wasn't sleeping, painkillers werent working & it had been over 1 week.
Have you had a temperature/fever at all?.. Have you been feeling light headed etc?.. How are you feeling in general apart from the cramping?
A D&C depends on the hospital etc, some put you under for it, others dont (depends on your state/hospital).. In Australia they put you under, suction the rest of the tissue etc out & thats it. Sometimes a curette is used, but thats pretty rare now that they have the vacuum aspiration.
Its basically similar to a first trimester abortion to empty the uterine contents.
Have a chat with your DR and discuss your options.
I hope you feel better soon!
