Hi Reba, I had a lap and D & C done last Thursday - and oh I wish it stopped mine (62 Days and going strong) I have had surgery in the past where it has delayed my period so I would say this could be what is going on. If you dont mind, can I ask you a question - Did you bleed at all after the D & C?? I would assume that you wouldnt as the lining has been removed and if this is the case, I sure wish my Doctor would return my calls. Take care ~ Kerrie
Mtgagirl - Thanks for the advice.
Karie - I had very slight spotting for almost a week but it definitely wasn't a period. The nurse said I might bleed after the surgery for 5 days or so.
I had a laparotomy to remove a grapefruit size dermoid on March 9. Before surgery, my last period was at the beginning of Feb and it lasted 2 weeks. I was very nervous because I didn't have a period immediately follwing my surgery. I was relieved when I started the last full week of April, but I had to make a gyn appt b/c my cramps were SO HORRIFIC and the flow was very heavy!!!! Dr said this was normal since I haven't had a period in 2 months. I just had another period, and it seems to be back to normal. So, I'd give it at least a month.
