Abnormal bleeding?

I was told that having surgery could change a menstrual cycle, it seems like it did.

A week before surgery I had my period. 2 weeks later I had one again, it was less than the usual amount of time.

Had one that ended prior to this past weekend, and now I'm bleeding yet again.

Is this a cause for alarm?

Re: Abnormal bleeding?

What type of surgery did you have? Was it female related? I have never heard of surgery affecting your cycle, unless you are talking about something that affects your female organs?

You should check with your doctor about this...she would be a better source of information. Check with your gyn...

Re: Abnormal bleeding?

I see my dr in a couple of weeks.

I mentioned it to my PSW last time it happened, she was the one who told me this. She's seen a lot in the 25 years she's been a PSW.

I've had the same surgery 3 times, and only this time has it affected me this way.

It wasn't female related, it was ankle surgery.

Re: Abnormal bleeding?

Hi Kris...hope it all works out for you. Definitely talk to your doctor/ PSW. I have had 11 surgeries in my life, all but one of them was unrelated to my female parts. I have never had any sort of period issues, nor have I been told that I could have period issues. This sounds unusual to me.

But good luck! I would ask for a full exam to make sure you aren't dealing with cysts or any other problem which could cause unusual bleeding.
