birth control & surgery

I'm on birth control - Apri - and I get my period on the 3rd day (Tuesday) of the placebo week. This schedule is fine and I have no issues with it whatsoever.


I will be having open heart surgey in the summer (more info in my personal journal, I think some entried are f-locked but I can definitely add you if you're interested in the whole thing), specifically late May/early June - pretty much as soon as school is finished for the summer. I'll be in the hospital for a week, and DO NOT want to have my period during this week. Ideally, I'd have my period the week BEFORE my surgery, so that I don't have to worry about it until I'm well on my way to getting better. But, I also want to have this done ASAP, and I don't know that I'll be able to schedule it so that it aligns my birth control schedule.

How exactly would I go about making this happen? Or, at the very least, ensuring that I don't have my period *while* I'm in the hospital?

I have a consultation scheduled with the surgeon on November 1, and this is definitely on my list of questions to ask. Just thought I'd get some advice from you lovely ladies too!
