Usually, yes you can have surgery when you are on your period. One reason some of us have surgery is we can't stop bleeding so we definitely head into OR bleeding!

However, we have had a few members share that their doctor preferred they not be on their period, and I have seen a few different reasons for the doctors' opinions about not doing surgery then. If it were an issue for your doctor, likely it would have been mentioned when you were scheduling. But to be safe, double check to be sure.

My doctor came right out an told me if I were bleeding, it wouldn't matter at all... she said she's an OB/GYN and has certainly seen all kinds of scenerio's. I think it depends the most on your doctor.

I was going great guns the day of surgery. I took a perverse pleasure in taking Flo out when she was in residence. There was no concern doing the surgery while bleeding. Be sure to check though. Good luck.

I was also told by my surgeon that it didn't matter if I had my period to him and would you you believe by the time my sugary came, also the great red Nile river was there. Oh boy, at least, after the surgery no more to worry about.

I did. I was told to keep the pad between my legs after I took off my clothes.

The worse part of course is the waiting, but there is a lot you could do in the mean time, prep yourself before with cooked foods (soups etc,) ready to go. I made sure that all my bills were paid, food was prepared ahead of time, my house was cleaned, frig was full for DH and family, then the night before, I prepared my sofa like a bed because I knew I was going to spend at least 2 days there. No way was I going into bed with him, I was afraid if he would hit me in the stomach area ( non intentionally of course ) when ever he turned. So sweetie, be patient and you'll see how quick the date will come for your surgery. Then it's just recovery time for you. Keep in touch. Hugs to you.
