You could ask the clinic to ask the donor is she'd be tested, though at this point, even if she were positive (which from the reading I did on the CDC site, seems about 50% of women of childbearing age would be), I'm not sure that would give you actionable info. Because the test is probably looking for antibodies, right? So if she tests positive now, it could be that she had it a long time ago, or recently/during donation? I'm not sure they could tell the difference.
Scarring from a D&C is the exception - not the norm. Please try not to worry about this. I know it's easier said than done, especially for those of us who've had a repeatedly unlucky journey, but truly, I believe you will be just fine and will soon be holding your child. I've had to have two D&Cs and they suck emotionally, but are usually physically uneventful. It's RARE not expected, to have scarring following it. Of course we focus on the possibility when ttc, but truly it's remote. Hang in there, better days must be right around the corner for you. Best wishes,
