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. The anesthesia itself is not the cause of the delay, but rather the large size of the tonsils or the stress of the surgery and recovery process could be responsible.
