irregular period after microdiscectomy

I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this as well. I had an epiduiral steroid injection on Sept. 10. That was in the middle of my menstrual cycle. About 2 weeks later I began spotting, which lasted about a week. I then had a microdiscectomy (l4/l5) on September 29. Two days later, I began spotting again. Now it is 3 weeks later. I have had 21 days of light to moderate flow. My gynocologist does not seem concerned. He said it is probably due to the stress of the surgery and that I should give it another week. I should mention that my cycle is pretty normal and always has been. Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: irregular period after microdiscectomy

Hi There!
I did not experience this after my surgery, but as long as your gyno says not to worry, I wouldn't. I tend to agree that stress can mess your bosy all up! I wish you luck!

Re: irregular period after microdiscectomy

Oh my gosh, this happened to me to! First of all I had an epidural
inject. on Aug 16 then another one on Aug. 30. So, on Sept. 22
I start my period, have a L5-S1 discetomy on Oct. 5, and was
still spotting/lightly bleeding, thru Oct.11 when on this day I
called my gyn. office and they told me to quit taking my birth
control pills for 4 wks and then start then again.
My periods are always irregular at least once or twice a yr., but
this was a little long. But like you, I figured it was due to stress.
I did however quit a couple of days afterwards, Thank God. !
Oh well, life goes if I could just get rid of this left butt
pain and pain in left leg, I would feel like a million dollars.........
