is it ok....hysterectomy during period?

Hi ladies!!
I was wanting to know if you can still have a laporoscopic hysterectomy while your on your monthly? I'm schedule for Jan 03, partial hysterectomy. Im hoping nothing interferes with that day???

Re: is it ok....hysterectomy during period?

Great question - looking forward to the answer myself. I would assume that bleeding will not prevent our surgeries. I have been bleeding for nearly 40 straight days - had a cervical biopsy last Thursday to ensure no precancerous cells are causing the prolonged bleeding and now I am bleeding heavier than before. My DaVinci is scheduled for 12/28. I will cry if I am still bleeding and can't have surgery! Thanks for posting this question.

Well ladies ,,, isnt this why we are having the surgery? I was told it doesnt matter and that is good because i am so irregular and of course I started a HORRIBLE period the day after I could not take any anti-inflamatory meds. Hang in there. Mine is in two days and I'm still very heavy. Oh well. they deal with blood in surgery right... dont overthink it... you will be fine...

Re: is it ok....hysterectomy during period?

My last two laps, I had my period - no problem with that, as the pre-op nurse said it's pretty common. Usually, you can just keep a pad on until surgery time, and after that, you won't even know what's going on! (Honestly, having one final one this go-around made me know beyond a doubt that I was doing the right thing...)

Good luck!

Hi, I was told the same thing. My TVH is on Dec 8th, and of course I'm to start on the fourth, Not what I really wanted,But I don't want to wait any longer so, I guess that's the way it will be. So everything should be fine. Hope to talk more as we go through this jounery.

Re: is it ok....hysterectomy during period?

I was bleeding in the grand fashion that brought me to have the hysterectomy in the first place on the day of surgery. You can use a pad or tampon it doesn't matter; it's all going away in the end. I agree with Elspethsheir-having my period at surgery just made my choice so much more perfect. I'm out 45 days from having everything removed with
absolutely zero regrets. I feel so great! Good luck and see you on the otherside.

Hi Sharona - It is great to hear you are feeling great just about 6 weeks post-op! I am so nervous that I won't feel better, it is comforting to hear (over and over) how well many people feel so quickly! 24 days and counting!

I spoke with my doctor about that this morning. She said it would be fine if I had my period on the scheduled hysterectomy date.
