LSH Mini Period

For those that had a LSH awhile ago: I'm curious, how long after your surgery did you get your first mini period? I don't have it yet and I sincerely hope to never get another period again - even if it is a mini period. I hated them from day one - mine have always been bad.

Oh, another question, how long after your LSH surgery was your first post-op appointment and what did they do/ask during the appointment?

I feel great and I have no regrets about the surgery. I concur that this is one of the easier surgeries when I compare it with the other types. I wish everyone could have this type done.

Cheers, Kelly

When was your first mini-period after Supracervical Lap Hyst


I cannot answer the mini-period question since I have not had one.

My 1st post-op was at 2 weeks. My Dr. just checked my incisions to make sure they were healing correctly he and just wanted to know how I was feeling. No internal exam.

I had my 2nd post-op at one month and he did do a internal exam then. I kind of worried about it and it turns out it did not feel uncomfortable at all for me. Went just fine. Did not have my next exam until my yearly.

Best wishes with your LSH recovery,

No "mini-period" for me either. I had one post op appointment six days after my surgery and nothing after that. Good luck with the healing!

When was your first mini-period after Supracervical Lap Hyst

I spent two nights in the hospital - I had my first post op visit one week later (just checked my incision). My next appointment was two weeks later (looked at the incision again. I am back at work now after 4 weeks - half time. No mini period yet - I have to say that I have been worried about that - with wondering when and if it will come.

I'm sorry I can't help you with the mini-period question, but this page from our Checkpoints section gives a few ideas of what to ask at your post-op appointment with the surgeon/doctor. I for one found it helpful to keep a pen and notebook handy to jot down any questions or concerns I had as my recovery progressed.

When was your first mini-period after Supracervical Lap Hyst

At my pre-op yesterday my doctor said he will cauterize the cervix to prevent mini-periods.. Most surgeons do this. He said there is still a slight chance of a mini-period when you keep your cervix, but the odds are very small (like 1 woman in 100). I would not cerncern myself with this. Believe me, I don't want them either. Just make sure he cauterizes and you should be ok. My daughter had her cervix cauterized AFTER her surgery because of mini-periods... she has not had any more since then... Hope this helps.
