Well hopefully someone can help me, I had my surgery July 3rd and since then my period has been all over the place even though I’m taking birth control pills. Last month i didn’t get my period and it seems like this month I won’t either. I’ve taken a lot of pregnancy test and they are all negative. is this normal? I’ve had the surgery for six months already

shouldn’t I be getting a period with birth control?

a lot of people's hormones get screwed up the first few weeks or months after surgery. The reason according to a lot of folks is that estrogen is stored in fat cells, and when you're losing weight rapidly, they get released and flood your system. It'll all balance out again eventually. Probably soon for you since it's already been six months.

I have the opposite problem. I haven't had a period for the past 4 years (thanks to my IUD) and then all of a sudden I get it 3 weeks after surgery. I freaked out bc it's been so long since I've gotten a period. Hoping I go back to my normal soon.

I had the opposite problem. I was on an extended cycle birth control pill for endometriosis, can't have an IUD due to the shape of my uterus, and had my period 4 times in 3 months, not including the one that the pill pack plans. I bled for 18 days with one of them. I just had an endometrial ablation last week because of it. My OBGYN said that the weight loss should have helped curtail the bleeding.

        You are doing this for YOU not anyone else!! Do not worry about what others think, it is how you think and feel about yourself that counts.

      Met with my surgeon yesterday and he said that he is so excited for me and the progress that will be made! Waiting for insurance pre-auth and then will get everything scheduled!
