Need some advice ladies : I had my... - Endometriosis UK
Not in my experience Nicole...I was put straight on medication after my laparoscopy because I do have endometriosis. I would definitely contact your GP. Any symptoms that are out of the ordinary after surgery are always worth investigating. It could just be the general anaesthetic (which stays in and affects your body for months and months post surgery), but it’s always best to be on the safe side. I hope you are feeling a lot better soon xx
The laparoscopy can affect cycles because of all the prodding and moving stuff around - the uterus doesn't like being moved. So you can have irregular cycles for the few months after lap and these may change your cycle length for the future.
Mine after two lap ops have always changed for the first few months, then after a while they settle back down. I had endo and had that removed, not on any hormones post treatment. It doesn't matter though what's been done, it's simply the moving around stuff in there that can cause a bit of stress to your uterus.
Give it about 4 to 5 months - that's the time you'll need to completely recover from the op anyway. If they're still irregular / haven't found their own cycle then talk to your GP / specialist.
my first one came on time as well - lap was mid cycle. It's because the cycle has already started.
for any future periods it takes time for the uterus etc to heal so cycles can be affected - even just the idea that energy will go into healing rather than the body supporting normal cycles as healing takes priority. makes sense when explained!
My cycles were bang on time after each laparoscopy; I’ve had 3( luckily I’ve always been regular)
Sorry to hear of your struggles to conceive, been there. Will give you a story of hope I fallen pregnant twice after a laparoscopy to to treat endometriosis ( for us it was our cause of infertility took many years to find it🤦🏽♀️) one resulted in a chemical pregnancy & the other one well I’m currently 5 weeks pregnant.
If your period still doesn’t show up I’d re test in a few days, you may have implanted later?
Really hope the laparoscopy has done the trick & you get good news soon ✨✨✨ xoxo😘
