Hello All!

I'm new to the community but I'm a 10+ year Diva girl :)

I had laparoscopy 2.5 weeks ago to remove mild endometriosis and my period is a few days away.  I had spotting for a few days following the procedure and I was told to use pads...I did, but truly, never again (if possible) lol cups are the best invention ever!

So, the question is, has anyone here had lap and used their cup on the first cycle after the procedure?   I called my gyno's office and he is on vacation,  I tried to find some info online, to no avail.

Honestly, I'm a bit nervous to use my Diva (my cervix is still quite tender) but I'm almost equally nervous to know I have a potentially torrential period coming and pads are the only alternative :(

Any and all experiences are welcome!! And thank you in advance :)

I think likely your period will be lighter this month. My first period after my lap was astonishingly light for me (I had stage III endometriosis discovered during the lap).

I used reusable pads because my cervix was way too tender to use a cup, especially as my cups always ride high and position themselves over my cervix.</p>

I think tampons are less likely to irritate you cervix. Would organic/all cotton tampons be possible for you? They can be less irritating to your vagina than regular tampons. I find if I alternate between pads and tampons that stops the drying effect on my vagina.

I would go with the dr request pads only I had a leep, and was told nothing but pads for my next cycle. I endured a cycle with pads only and was immensely grateful that I had allowed my body to heal and that I would be able to return to using my cup the next montn
