it seems to be pretty common that people's hormone levels get screwed up for a few weeks or months after weight loss surgery. It should normalize after awhile. The reason is that estrogen is stored in fat cells, and it gets released and floods your system during rapid weight loss. Or at least that's the claim. Makes sense to me! At any rate, what you're experiencing is not unusual.

I actually got my period 4 days after surgery and it was early. Now I'm about 4 days past when I should of had it. I'm sure itll be off kilter for a while!! Thanks.

Did any of you ladies miss a period after surgery? I have 0% chance of being pregnant so in just curious if it's due to the rapid weight loss. Thanks!!

I haven't had a period in like... three years. I had my surgery Monday and, lo and behold, guess what shows up this morning? Ugh. Hormones are crazy.

Surgery was on 5/25..period was due 5/26. It never came. However, for the past week or so, I’ve been having intermittent cramping, nausea, backache and spotting. I had JUST gotten my hormones back together after removal of my IUD 2 years ago prior to surgery. Now, it’s all jacked up again lol. Oy vey! 😩

hormone dumps are very common after WLS due to estrogen being replaced from fat cells. It'll eventually stabilize.

I had one right after my surgery, then I haven't had another since. I definitely have the hormone fluctuations and moodiness when it's around the time I would, though. I'm basically waiting for it to surprise me at this point.
