Re: On Period on surgery day

I'm having my surgery 11/30. I've been having my period since September 2nd. and still not stopping. So I will be thankful for the surgery!

Well - I am still waiting!!! I am on day 9 not taking the pill and still no period! I only have to make it to Mon and I will be home free!!
Good luck on the 28th. I too am looking forward to this being behind me. Did your doc say why you should stop the birth control? Just curious. I spoke to the nurse and forgot to ask.

Re: On Period on surgery day

I actually didn't ask the exact reason but he definitely wanted me to be off it at least 7 days before the surgery. I just chose to stop it even earlier than that - I really thought I'd have my period 2 days after stopping but so far nothing.
