Vaginal Bleeding



Recommended Posts

Have any other women out there experienced any post surgical vaginal bleeding? Not the right time in my cycle. I'm 4 days post op, and already down 10 lbs from night before surgery. Maybe the rapid weight loss messing with hormone levels??

I am about to hit one month out and I am on my second period. I haven't had one in over a year with my iud, then I get 2 back to back. My doc said its because of the estrogen being released from the fat cells. All I know is that I have an iud for a reason, and I want it to stop! Lol

Alliemm, understandably frustrating!! How is your energy level at one month. I feel weak as a mouse. Wonder how you heal with so little nourishment.

It is different day to day. I needed a nap today because I was so drained. My Nut has me on three meals a day and one Protein shake. No snacking and when I'm not eating I have my Water on hand. I notice the days I don't drink enough Water I am sluggish. The first two weeks I napped every day. The third week I was taking my kids swimming. As long as I drink my water and eat enough protein/carb I am good to go. With only being 4 days out, I recommend planning a nap in your schedule when you can. It will help your healing along with fluids.

I don't have PCOS and I can set my watch by my cycle, but my cycle came 2 weeks early after Inhad surgery. It sucks, and the cramps were even worse.

Three days after my surgery my period decided to come....for the first time in 5 months....I didnt have one in July, so my GYN put me on a different pill and I had one in August...I'm hoping that they come regularly now that I'm lighter

3 months post-op and even being back on birth control my cycle is still a bit out of whack. I have heard it can take a while for you to get back to regular.

Good luck

I wish I'd seen this a month ago! I went to the gyno for my annual check-up and mentionned that I'd been spotting for several weeks. Also I did mention the fact that I'd had sleeve surgery and lost nearly 60 lbs. I hada an endometrial biopsy and a vaginal ultrasound in the office. While the biopsy cam back normal, my doctor as still concerned about the bleeding and recommended having a hysteroscopy and D&C to determine if pre-cancerous cells existed. I had the procedure today and am waiting for the pathology results. While searching this site, I found this discussion. If this is why I'm bleeding, I'll be so pissed that I went through all this expense and stress over the last month. I asked my surgeon if the bleeding could be due to the weight loss, his PA said "no" and that I should have my hormones checked. Hormone levels were all normal.

Why wouldn't the surgeon let sleeve patients know that irregular vaginal bleeding could be possible after losing drastic amounts of weight so quickly? I wish I'd known. :(
