It is normal , my first period after my lap was the worse one I've ever had. But it's because your body is still healing ..A laproscophy is a big surgery a lot of stuff is going on inside your body and it has been poked and prodded .. Mine didn't get better until say my 4th but everybody is different , when I inform my gynocolagist about it he said it was normal. What medication do you take? Try a long hot bath, hot water bottle.. Must most of all rest. X

My periods were really bad the first 2 after the operation like a real 'dragging feeling' and very late which is unlike me. By the 3rd one I was totally pain free and back on track, like a miracle!! I'm also having accupuncture so not sure if that helped too!

Hope they are ok for you and wish a speedy recovery!! X

Thanks I'm just hoping they get better with time 😊.x.

Thank youse both very much for the replies..it's made me feel a bit better knowing its normal and let's just hope the next few periods ease off!😊x.x.
