Menstrual Cycle At Surgery Time



Recommended Posts

Ladies, I need help! I am afraid that I am due to get my period right around my scheduled surgery date next week! I have been off the birth control pill that is used to control my heavy flow. Will this impact surgery (please tell me it won't prevent moving forward with the surgery)? As it is my PMS and cycle time is a horrible mess of hormones and emotions, what should I expect?

They gave me special panties and some pads. If it's laparoscopic, they aren't doing anything to mess with that.

Other than your emotions being a bit higher (mine were, but I got through it okay), you should be okay. They're professionals, and they deal with people all the time. It's nothing they haven't seen before. ❤️

If you don’t start before you probably will after. I walked into the bathroom when they wheeled me to my room after surgery and had started. The nurse said almost everyone starts it when they have the surgery.

I was due to come on my period before surgery but I think due to stress I was delayed for a week. On day surgery didnt have period but got it day after. It definitely is uncomfortable but it keeps you mobilised and back to yourself faster. I was worried it will mess up my surgery but I was fine.

It will not affect the surgery :) Even if you are on your cycle on the day of surgery, they will still proceed. Just make sure you bring tampons or pads because hospitals usually have those super bulky pads.
