Periods after lap
Hi,

Would just like to know how you periods are after you have done a laparoscopy? I'm a week late, would my periods be irregular and for how long?

The healing process is taking a while for me, my scars are fully healed but I still experience pain on a daily basis. It's been almost 3 weeks

Thanks

You may have a delayed period the first month after a laparoscopy. Mild pain from the operation is possible for 3 weeks after a laparoscopy, but it may be the underlying problem which is causing the pain.

Best wishes
