Smile change in my period

A little over 3yrs ago after I had my son I had my tubes tied. Every since my cycle has lasted longer, my cramps are very painful, and my mood is very bad during that time. Nothing over the counter has helped. Before I had my son I found out my pituitary gland is about 3X the size it should be. My question is, has anyone had this type of change after having that surgery? And does it sound like my pituitary gland may have something to do with the change?

Re: change in my period


When was the last time you check in with an endocrinologist concerning your pituitary gland? (I think that is the type of doctor or it could be a neurologist) Maybe you should follow up on why the gland is so large and what factors if may be having on you health now.

Angry Re: change in my period

My doctor dida MRI back n September. He said he didn't see any tumors and he checks once a year. They don't know what caused it but my hormones are off. We all have male and female hormones. What ever sex you are you have more of that type of hormone. I have more male.
