I am getting ready to have a keep performed in january, but the date my doctor's nurse told me it will be, i may be on my period, it's right around the time I usually start. Will this be an issue? Do I need to bring this up to my doctor?

Yes, you need to bring this up with your physician. It is very unlikely they will want to do this procedure while you are menstruating.
