Laproscopy nightmare!

Hi guys,

I'm really new to this. For years I have had problems but most recently I have had a laproscopy on the 1st October. Since then my body is confused in regards to my periods. Is this normal?

I had a period on the 7th November, bleeding on the 24th for 5 days and since then nothing. I'm confused and fed up of being fobbed off by the doctors. Can anyone help?

Hello. What did they do during your lap? I.e. did they remove much endo, unstick things, etc.?

Unfortunately I can't really comment on how periods behave after laps as although having had 2 now, my last just 6 days ago, I've had hormone therapy straight after to prevent my periods from returning (Zoladex implants and now the Mirena).

Were you regular before? I would guess the body will take at least a few months to get back into a cycle but your doctor and/or specialist should be able to advise, and definitely not fobbing you off!

I would say give it a bit more time and continue recording the dates x


I too had period issues following my lap, When they did mine they made an incision in my uterus which im sure was prob the cause. To start with I was a week late, then I had a period that went on for 2 weeks- that sucked. I started a new pill, Yasmin, as well that period so I'm not sure that helped either, are you on any kind of hormone treatment? I know more often than not they can muck up your cycles for a bit but I definitely found the surgery disrupted my cycles.
