I had my laparoscopy in January for endo. Since the surgery, each period starts with a day of heavy brown blood…looks nasty as hell! My cycles went from 28 days (I’m pretty regular) to 23-24 days…YIKES!
Since the surgery, my periods have been about 4-5 days of medium to heavy blood. I’ve actually had painful, heavy periods my entire life and the cramps aren’t AS bad but still noticeable. I was starting to wonder if the surgery actually helped.
So we are still TTC with no luck…I didn’t think the surgery would be the answer anyways! And I’ve just started on my 5th cycle (scary since the surgery was only 3.5 months ago) and this time….NO brown blood, NO cramps, and my period lasted maybe 2.5 days…and only 1 day was medium flow not heavy.
OHHH and the best part…I’m back to 27 days!!!! I have to say I was thinking I might be PG b/c I was 4 days late. I never got a definite positive OPK during fertile week so I wasn’t sure of my LP and didn’t have my hopes up. But my boobs quit hurting the day of AF, so I knew I was NOT!
I can’t tell you how excited I was to get that period…and to think I just went out and stocked up on tampons when I hardly needed them! Is this what it’s like for most women?
