    Default Has anyone had painful af after a lap??

    Hi ladies,

    I had a lap back in Feb this year & had a lot of cysts & endo removed. I was on a few medications afterwards in which I didn't get af while I was taking.

    I have finally gotten af now & this is my first one after surgery. It is so unbelievably unbearable, I don't know what to do. I'm in so much pain, can barely walk & obviously can't sleep. Taking Nurofen plus just isn't doing anything either. I used to get painful af like this when I first got my periods but haven't had anything like this for years & years.

    Anyway, I was just wondering how other people's af were after a laporoscopy...as I'm hurting big time & am hoping this amount of pain isn't going to visit everytime !!

    Sorry to hear you're having such a rough time after my 2 laps for pcos and endo, I had a very normal period a couple of days after the ops. Perhaps since it's the first one, it's just flushing out your system? Maybe call the doctor who did the surgery and ask.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help

    TTC as of August 2013

    I have endo & PCOS. I've had 3 laps and a cyst removal. After each a week of nothing and then AF would rear it's ugly head. Unfortunately for me they didn't help but my endo is also on my bowel and to have that removed would require cutting.

    You may need long term meds or if TTC, you just kinda have to put up with it. It sucks I know.

    I have a Mirena in now after having DD. It was recommended for me and after the first 3 months of AF all over the place, AF now is spotting.

    Ibuprofen and a hot water bottle were my friends through AF. Occasionally I took Mersyndol Forte when it was REALLY bad.





    Me 29 + DH 33 = DD 7 months

    Thanks ladies for all your replies, it really does help to hear what others have experienced. I thought the operation would help pain/amount of bleeding but at the moment I feel it's the worst it has been in a long time. I spent the night with a wheat heat pack thing & it's been pretty bad...hopefully it won't last for long!!

    I have a scan with my doctor on CD12 so I'll be able to ask her then about it...I hope the rest of my cycles get better from here
