Period due on Hyster day

My surgery date is March 9th. I was expecting my last period to me Feb 16th but it came at 22 days. That leaves me due to Start on March 9th - My day!!!! Or if I am early I will be in the middle of my period for surgery. I am anxiety ridden. Does this cause any problems with the Docs. I'm going to be so embarrased explaining to the nurses that I need a pad and sterile undies. Did anyone have this experience?

Re: Period due on Hyster day

My doctor seems unconcerned about this issue. We've scheduled my hysterectomy on March 6th not know when the heck my freak show heavy period is coming. My period is very irregular so we really can't plan around it.

Give your doctor's nurse a call. It may put your mind at ease.

Re: Period due on Hyster day

Just got mine and hyster is on Thursday. I asked my Dr and he said not to worry about it. He said that it won't affect the surgery and that I should look on the bright side....I won't be waking up with it
Try not to worry and if your period is anything like mine, it will make you want your hyster.
Wishing you all the best...

My gyno put me on birth control pills to help slow or stop the bleeding. She said if there was bleeding it wouldn't have any effect on the surgery. I do understand the feeling of embarassment. I experieced it every time I had to go for an exam.

I had my hyster Feb. 8 and I had been bleeding since November (!) with no signs of stopping so there was no way to plan around it, nor was my doctor concerned. While in pre-op the nurse gave me a pad. No need to be embarassed. The nurses have seen everything and are very understanding and professional. And my period did not impact my hysterectomy at all. Everything went fine! P.S. I am three days post-op and am not bleeding for the first time in months...YAY!

I had this conversation with my surgeon and he pretty much said the same thing as everyone else. My surgery is on 02/24 and mine will probably be right along with me.

Re: Period due on Hyster day

Thank you everyone! I guess Murphys Law says - What ever date your booked for will be your Next and LAST Period. I guess I wanted to Celibrate my Last period this month. One more and then it will no longer have control over my life. You are also right that the nurses and Dr's have been there and done that before. I won't be anything they haven't delt with. I can't wait for my Day!

Re: Period due on Hyster day

I'll be in the second week of my period on my surgery date. They said it didn't matter. I feel so bloated, like my uterus is pushing my abdomen out, that I can't wait to get rid of it.
