Periods after gastric sleeve



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

Just wanted to ask a quick question as I haven't been able to find anything online.

I was sleeved on the 8th of February and after 7 months of no period from being on the pill, it finally arrived on the 1st of March.

It's now the 28th of April and I'm still on, that's nearly 8 weeks of period (54 days exactly)

My doctor wants to see me to get me checked out but I was just wondering if anyone else had been on for this long, and when did it finally end?!

Mine seem to be such a tease! They get lighter and lighter and I'll even have nothing for a day then suddenly they'll be heavy again! It's really frustrating as it's making me crave bad foods more than usual. I hope I don't become anemic after all this blood loss

Thanks ladies xxx

Oooh hon, that’s a long time to be bleeding! You should go get checked up on. I was regular before surgery and regular after surgery. I would say early post op some might have some issues in the way of recovery, of which you could be in, BUT that is entirely too long. Please do get a check up.

If I don’t take my birth control around the same time every day, I will bleed.. like clockwork... it has been terrible after surgery. My surgeon said it would regulate itself once I’m in maintenance phase 🙄 went to my “lady” doctor and she told me the same thing.. so I’ve been taking my birth control between 6-8a every single day to help.

I have an IUD and didn’t have a period for seven months leading up to my surgery and then when I was on a liquid diet, the flood gates opened and I had it for almost three/four weeks. My body has now regulated and I am back to normal. But to be honest, I think your body is just going through so much change that it does not know what is going on. I would get it checked out but my body did eventually go back to normal.

Thank you, yeah I think I should when I get back home, it's ridiculous! If only there was a magic pill that just stopped it in its tracks lol

Do you know what, I used to take it at the same time every day until I had surgery, then I chose to just take it with my Vitamins when I woke up, but I don't work so I get up at different times. I'm going to set my alarm again and take my pill separately and see what happens, thank you!

That sounds just like me haha I'm glad your back to normal and yeah I was told my body is probably in shock! Did you see the doctor about it or just let nature run its course?

I have the opposite - no period for two months. I'm dreading its return though!

I'm on the pill too and I still got it monthly but missed 2 days because of the hospital/homecoming etc. I got mine like 4/19 and it's still kinda hanging around too, just spotting but still! I went ON the pill to get rid of this crap!

I had a similar thing happened on the IUD I was bleeding for a month after 3 years. They removed it got me on a different hormone to stop it literally within two days it stopped. This was all because I have major ovarian cysts

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
