Answer

D&C is an appropriate diagnostic step in a patient who fails to respond to hormonal management. The addition of hysteroscopy will aid in the treatment of endometrial polyps or the performance of directed uterine biopsies. As a rule, apply D&C rarely for therapeutic use in AUB because it has not been shown to be very efficacious.
