When to expect period after polypectomy

Postby BuffaloMaple » Tue Apr 04, 2017 6:26 pm

If anyone has had a polypectomy, was your next period late? Did you ovulate that cycle?

I took BC pills CD3-7 and had polypectomy CD8. I spotted for 2 days after the surgery, then bled like a period for an additional 4 days. My nurse said the latter bleeding was probably breakthrough bleeding from the BC pills. Is breakthrough bleeding considered a period?

In the meantime, I've been doing Wondfo OPKs. I keep getting random positives (CD15-16 which is normal range for me, CD23-26, CD28, CD30, CD32-33 today). Basically my LH is on a wild rollercoaster! Normally I get EWCM but have had none this cycle. I've tried verifying the positive Wondfos with Clearblue digital smiley tests but the digitals come back negative. I guess I'm not ovulating this month?

Today is CD33 and no sign of AF. Normal is 28-31 for me. I feel like I have no idea where I'm at in my cycle, and it's super frustrating to wait and wonder! I don't feel AF coming, I don't feel ovulation, I just feel blah. I reallllly want my period to start so we can just move on to our next treatment. My RE said to expect a period 2-6 weeks after surgery, so I guess this is normal. Looking for any personal experiences from anyone else..

It's CD42 and no signs of AF. It's been 5 weeks since my polypectomy and 6 weeks since my last period. I just want to start AF so we can get on with our next treatment cycle! Waiting for a baby just gets harder and harder. :cry:

Thanks Danaa. I contacted my RE today and they just told me to take a hpt and keep waiting. :roll: Of course I already took a test lol and negative! CD48 today and about 6 weeks since my polypectomy. Patience is virtue!
