Menstruation after laparoscopy, how long does it take?

Posted , 2 users are following.


I had my laparoscopy on the 25th of July 2017, after the laparoscopy I bleeded for one week then it stopped. But before it, I saw my circle on the 16th of July andUp till now, I have no sign of my days. Although we have been TTC as my Dr. Said one week after the lap I can keep tryin TTC.

I don't want to run a test, I thought I should still wait that it will come.

Has anyone experienced this before?

What do you think?

Please chat me up.

    Hello, I have had mine done on the same day as you and same procedure. I haven't bled after the operation and had my first period this month on the 16. With regards to being intimate a week after the operation I think is too soon as your uterus is not healed. I was told no sex for 30 days and after 2-3 moths I can try for a baby as the uterus will be healed. Ask another doctor about how soon after the operation you can have sex just to be sure you won't cause more damage to the womb.

    Thanks Camelia. My Dr. Said I can keep trying after one of the operation. I don't feel pains at all, am strong. I only experience urinating frequently than before and pains in my nipple. I think I should just visit my gynecologist thus week.
