If you are about to undergo dental surgery, you may be wondering if it can affect your menstrual cycle. Generally speaking, having a local anesthetic to fill a cavity will not have any effect on your period. However, if you are receiving general anesthesia for a more invasive procedure such as the removal of your tonsils, it could potentially delay your period.
