Surgery 2 days away & I started my period????

My period comes every 18 days from the time it stops and lasts about 7-9 days with very heavy bleeding (think 2 boxes of tampons very period.) I didn't calculate my dates correctly or it is starting early (haven't looked at calander) but I'm unsure if the can perform the surgery on Wednesday if I'm on my period... Does anyone know the answer to this? My dr office is closed today so I can't call them or I would.

Re: Surgery 2 days away & I started my period????

I started my period 3 days before surgery. I worried too. It does not matter. I told the nurse and showed me where the pads were if I needed them. They put a blue pad on the bed. This was the prep for surgery day I am referring to. When there surgery was over I had no more bleeding. None.

Hiya EzlyBroken,

I'm sorry to hear that you got your period again-mine made an "exit play" and decided to play nice (no horrible cramping for the first time in years) about a week before my surgery. I have friends who were bleeding going into the OR, it's nothing to worry about. A lot of people have their hysterectomies because of excessive bleeding. I have never heard of a surgeon canceling the surgery due to someone having their period. You should have nothing to worry about!!

Just think, you wont need those two boxes of tampons every month after the 28th! *Gentle hugs*

Thank you ladies!! While the bleeding is the least of the issues as to why I am having my surgery lol... It's still a decent factor. I think I am just getting nervous... And of course the pesky period had to rear its ugly head to make me unsure after I had mentally prepared for this... Thank you again ladies!!!

I was bleeding too... most of us had our hysterectomies because of the bleeding... if they had to reschedule us, we'd NEVER get there! Dont worry... Theyre doing it anyway. Best wishes to you and we'll see you on the post op boards

My Dr told me it didn't matter if i did or did not have my period when they do the hysterectomy. Praying you have a easy recovery!

My Dr said my period was a non issue. That was a major relief! Trying to schedule around it would have been very difficult!
