Sometimes: Your surgery with myomectomy depended either it involved as sub-mucous fibroid likely to affected your period for sometimes especially if have more then one or two removed. Generally serous or pendulous fibroids less likely to affect your periods unless you are affected by general factors for surgery overall eg anesthesia, medicines and stress etc. Watch for 3 months will be a good rule to assess
