I'm going in for my d&c at 6am tomorrow,and I was wondering if its standard procedure to do pathology/genetic testing or do I need to ask for testing to be done? I'm just kinda looking for answers on my loss if any! I did ask the Dr. Who counceled me on the d&c, but she isn't the one who will be performing it, but she did say they usually don't send off for testing...any of you ladies know if this is something I need to ask for? TIA

I would assume because the doctor who did the counseling said they don't typically do that, you would have to ask.

Mine has gone to pathology for all my D&Cs but I don't know if that's typical since I have a history of cervical cancer. I do know you have to request genetic testing.
