Will Aunt Flo postpone surgery??

I don't know if I'm just hormonal & being a worry wart right now or what, but I'm suddenly in a panic that if I'm having a period when I'm scheduled for surgery it will be postponed. It could be because I'm on day 8 of heavy bleeding right now and miserable, but with a month left until D-day (or H-day!), there's a good chance I'll be bleeding on the day I'm scheduled, with another period in between. I've been pretty regular, having periods every 2 weeks for the last year or so and if I AM bleeding, can they still do the TVH? I'm really hoping this is just the pain and hormones making me worry right now, but I sure could use some encouragement...STAT!

Nope, they will not cancel your surgery if you are bleeding. I made sure to check and double check that with my doc. He said either way, the surgery will get done. So no need to worry!!!

Re: Will Aunt Flo postpone surgery??

I've heard from many women here that they were able to have their surgeries while they were on their periods. My own doctor said it wasn't a problem. I guess your doctor could be different, so you probably want to call and ask, but from everything I've heard you should be fine! Good luck!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for easing my mind!!!! I figured that considering this is one of the reasons I'm getting it done that it shouldn't matter. I mean when I'm not regular at all it seems it would be almost impossible to schedule, but I just needed a little reassurance. Whew!!

I started my period 2 days before my surgery. It didn't make any difference. You should be fine.
