I had the procedure done last thursday and was supposed to get my period 2 days later, I'm currently on birth control so my menstural cycle is pretty regular. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Is this common?? As for the bloody stools I just started having the in the last 3 days.

Blood In Stool Not Side Effect of CoolSculpting
Thank you for your question. Usually the side effects of CoolSculpting are redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. You may have numbness which can last for several days after treatment. However, having blood in your stool is not a side effect of Coolsculpting. I recommend seeing your doctor immediately for an evaluation and treatment. Best of Luck
Coolsculpting is best when performed on an area that has an excess number of fat cells. For example, women say, "When I gain weight, it goes straight to my belly." That means that you were born with more fat cells in your abdominal area. It would be great to perform coolsculpting in that area to reduce the number of fat cells there and make that are more proportional with the rest of your body. Then, if you gain weight, it will be more evenly distributed over your body. It won't just "go straight" to one area.
The fat loss is permanent after Coolsculpting. You typically lose 20-25% of the fat in the area treated, each time you treat it. I have done it to myself and my staff. It is truly effective and has no down time.
Blood in stool or missed period are not adverse reaction of coolsculpting.

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq should not have complications of bloody stools or a missed cycle
For anyone that has bloody stools, chances should not be taken, and those people should see their doctor! Possibly it's hemorrhoids or a fissure (a small split in the mucosal lining) but other more serious causes must be ruled out! There shouldn't be a reason to have missed a cycle from CoolSculpting. Please discuss this with your doctor too. A repeat pregnancy test by your doctor should be ordered.
