Period after laparoscopy: why not?


Laparoscopy has become the «gold standard» for the diagnosis and treatment of many gynecological pathologies. This minimally invasive intervention, running without an abdominal incision, held on different days of the menstrual cycle, with the exception of the actual menstrual days.

Timing (estimated day phase) procedure in women depends on the specific pathology, so the doctor agrees the date of the procedure in advance. However, many women, especially trying to get pregnant, more concerned with the question – when will first period after a laparoscopy, possible delay, and if so, how?

Possible deviations after laparoscopy in gynecology

We should specify that the failure of the cycle or absence of menstruation after laparoscopic manipulation is not necessarily caused by their conduct. Possible violations may be the result of weakened immunity, hormonal changes, development of another disease or postponing the emotional stress related to feelings about surgery. You must remember that the regularity of menstruation depends on the age of the woman.

One should not discount the professionalism of the specialist performing the procedure. On the one hand, such interference is maximally sparing the woman’s body, but on the other, requires a doctor of sufficient experience and jewelry expertise. Will there be a failure of the menstrual cycle or not depends on the amount of surgery performed and the presence of hormone therapy afterwards. A possible reason for a slight delay in the critical days can also be performed under General anesthesia.

According to medical statistics after laparoscopy ovarian the delay period or start prematurely occurs in 99.9% of women.

In addition, laparoscopy can cause the following effects, which is considered the norm:

  • immediately after manipulation appear smudged kroviste selection, which can take several days, sometimes spotting may last before the onset of menstruation;
  • the delay period for a period not exceeding 2 weeks;
  • pain during the first menstrual period, especially after removal of fibromatous nodes;
  • profuse menstruation when adenomiose, polyposis, hyperplasia.

If a laparoscopy had been additionally performed a curettage or hysteroscopy, the day of the intervention is taken for 1 day of a new menstrual cycle.

In addition to General and individual factors for how long no periods after laparoscopy and in what time frame must start the first menstruation after the procedure, largely influenced by the occasion on which this manipulation was performed.

Polycystic ovaries

This is one of the most common diagnoses in which are to undergo laparoscopic surgery. Carry out the same operation planning 7 or 8 day of the menstrual cycle. While she removed the sheath, which prevents the normal maturation of the follicle with the egg.

Even if such a cleansing manipulation will be an experienced gynecologist with gold hands, injury to the ovarian tissue (the truncation of a small part of it) is inevitable. In turn, this causes a hormonal imbalance. The value of these individual changes, and periods will begin when a woman’s body recovers hormonal.

The vast majority of cases, endoscopic manipulation during polycystic is conducted to ensure that a woman can get pregnant. Therefore hormonal preparations are not assigned, and the body is forced to recover himself. However, there are exceptions when after laparoscopy polycystic monthly begin in due time or even earlier. This happens in cases where prescribed hormone treatment to stimulate ovulation and promotes formation of the II phase of the menstrual cycle.

Ovarian cyst

Laparoscopic removal of a cyst on the ovary is performed at the end of the menstrual cycle. Therefore, in contrast to the endoscopic treatment of cystic, the woman’s body has time to restore the balance of hormones, which is the removal of the tissues of the ovary in contact with the shell of the cyst. That is why the period after laparoscopy cysts start on a normal schedule or a short delay occurs 2-4 days.

After laparoscopic removal of cysts can be fairly heavy spotting. If they will last the same amount of time as regular menstruation, young women often take them for monthly after laparoscopy.


This is another pathology for which laparoscopic surgery is the «gold standard» of treatment. If the endometriosis was removed from the walls of the uterus, the violation cycle will not. If the «smoothed out» the tissue of the ovaries, onset of menstruation will depend on the square of the processed surface and day of the menstrual phase, in which the operation was performed.

After laparoscopic removal of endometriosis can be assigned to these drugs that can cause absence of menstruation for several months, and in some women it will be similar to daub.

Gynecologists warn. After a laparoscopic procedure, you must abstain from sex for one month.

The doctor is obliged to warn a patient about all the features that may occur in her body after a laparoscopy. If there is discomfort, pain or unusual discharge, which specialist did not say that, in order to avoid complications, you should immediately seek medical help.
