Is it okay to have surgery during a menstrual cycle?

I wanted to figure this out before I schedule my upcoming surgery.

Most genreal, non-gynecology surgeries can be done even if you have your periods. There is no added risk - just a little inconvenience for you.

I wouldn't suggest this. With everything else going on, the last thing you want is to put up with your menstrual cycle, and changing pads. I would have surgery after your cycle. This will give you some time to deal with your surgery and heal before you start the cycle again.
