It doesn't matter that you may be having your menses, atleast I cannot think of a reason that it would.  You don't have your ovaries out unless the doctor has ordered a oophorectomy with the removal of your uterus(hysterectomy).

It doesn't matter...I was on my period and they said it was fine.  When I went thru the prep at the hospital, they gave me a monster pad with mesh panties (they are just easy tear away panties) and let me keep a tampax in as well.  They said they would take care of it after I was out.   They said that happens all of the time and really put me at ease.   Good Luck...I am 4 weeks post op and feeling good now and better each day...I just rest when I need to.
