I have an Answer for Period during surgery Question!! :)

I asked my PS today.. If I have my period during surgery.. should I wear a pad or a tampon? I said "pad right?" he's like "no! tampon!!" I asked him why, and he said because it won't matter if you wear a tampon.. you just go home and change it!! ha I don't know...I liked his answer though.. so I think we are overthinking things sometimes.. it's okay to have your period during surgery.. he said that he's found that most girls have their periods during surgery..because the stress and stuff before hand throws us off haha..

bottom line..

wear a tampon. (probably whatever you are most comfortable with!)

I was wondering about this as well . . hopefully my cycle doesnt switch up on me that way i can plan mines b4 it starts. otherwise im thinking a B.A plus a Period would equal a TRAINWRECK! or maybe not? the meds could help lol

i probably would do a tampon anyhow.

I was told you could not have any foriegn objects in your body including earings during surgery. I have my preop tommorrow so I will find out for sure what my PS says, and I will be lucky enough to be on mine during surgery.

Huh...I never even thought of this question before! I'm more worried about having my period when I'm in Vegas six weeks post-op - my husband would be ticked off if I had my period on our first child-free vacation in four years!!

I've had about 8 surgeries throughout my entire life, & if the Dr isn't sure how long you are going to be under for they want you to use a pad simply for the fact that they don't want you to get toxic shock syndrome. Being that a breast augmentation is a simple in & out procedure that usually takes about an hour,there is no risk for TSS. You should be perfectly fine wearing a tampon during surgery. I've had a surgery that lasted 8 hours, so that was more of a concern I guess...

Yep I mentioned to him about TSS..and he told me that we aren't under long enough for that to be a concern. I guess I just thought that we shouldn't wear tampons if there is a complication during surgery of something! but I hope to NOT have my period during surgery..just so I don't have to think about it. I don't really care though I guess..

this is what I had thought till I asked my PS.. every PS is sooo different.. it's almost as if there is no right or wrong in this type of thing i guess!

I was supposed to start my period the day of my surgery, and my PS told me to only wear a pad, and no tampons are allowed in patients she's doing surgery on.

Jetison will become famous soon enough
The earrings thing I would think is incase your heart stops and they have to shock you, you'd get BBQ'd ear lobes!!! but yea, tampons I don't see why not for this short procedure.

Bell, did you ask her why? I'd be interested to find out her reason.

I'm supposed to start the day before, but lately I have been 3-5 days late every month, so lets hope that on the month when I WANT to be late I am lol
