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.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.

      This virus is starting to get to me.  I am still doing my exercise (running and walking the dog and strength training but I am finding that I am snacking more, I don't like this!!  
      Is this happening to anyone else? What are you doing to combat it?

      Good Morning,
      I am determined to get in more movement today. Since March 13th, we have been pretty much "at home". I was looking forward to hitting the gym, but alas, that is not to be. So, I will get in at least a 30-minute walk and some sort of online  (youtube) exercising. Anyone have any favorites they would like to recommend for a newcomer, beginner to mid-range?
