Does Period Matter for Surgery?

Best wishes to you! I'm glad you've joined us here at Hyster Sisters!

Just to help you along in your journey, why not check out our Hysterectomy Checkpoints section which gives all sorts of great information about your surgery and recovery time. Also the Hints and FYI subforum of this discussion board gives many good tips for your hospital stay and the weeks right after surgery.

I've heard it said that you go into the operating room with your period and you leave the operating room without it! It will not matter to your surgeon in the least if you have your period at surgery time, although you will want to discuss that at your pre-op appointment just to put yourself at ease.

Hope this helps.

Does Period Matter for Surgery?

I bled for 6 months straight before my surgery. If I had had to wait to stop bleeding before surgery I would still be waiting.

Does Period Matter for Surgery?

Hi Geraldine. I started my period the morning of my surgery. I let the nurse know during pre-op and she placed a pad on the sheet. It had no impact on the surgery. I told my sister-in-law who visited me in the pre-op room, "This is the last day that I will ever have a period." She said what a profound and happy thought!!

Best wishes on your surgery and recovery.

good to know

Hi There

Thank you for answering my Question I was a bit worried because I never really have a proper break from my periods and it will feel a bit weird to say the least going in with my period and it is good to know I am not the first to worry or experience this

God Bless
