I had hyteroscopy &laparoscopy surgery 13days ago. And my menstrual cycle this month not coming yet for what reason why my normal period not coming?

Hormonal changes: It is not uncommon for periods to be irregular after a procedure, especially those involving the uterus. Hormonal imbalances can occur from the stress of a procedure, and local irritation from instrumenting the uterus can also affect your period. Given that you had this 13 days ago, it is extremely unlikely to be due to pregnancy. You can call your gynecologist for more advice. ...Read more

My best friend has eating disorders because she eats very little and very rare. i was so worried about her when her menstrual cycle stopped for a year?

My best friend has eating disorders because she eats very little and very rare. i was so worried about her when her menstrual cycle stopped for a year?

Lethal anorexia: You are right to be worried about your friend! It sounds as if she is quite underweight. Lack of menses for a year is a sign of this. She needs intensive therapy for this as it is both a mental and physical illness. She should know that mortality (death) is also high for the disease. ( one in 5 will die from it) encourage her to ask questions on Healthtap. Where is her family on the issue? ...Read more

First, sorry for my weak english. I have a question for my menstrual cycle. I know that the best menstrual cycle is every 28 days, but my mrnstrual cycle is every 33 or 36  or sometimes till 40 days. I have to mention that I am 23 years old. So I think it

Pls finish question: Hi! There is no "best" cycle. 28-day cycle is the average with normal being from 21 to 35 days. If your cycles are 33-36 days but pretty regular they are probably ovulatory but if they are more irregular then ovulation may not be occurring which is not a health problem unless you are trying to get pregnant. So it depends on what exactly bothers you about your periods. (your english is fine!) ...Read more

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but i've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

I have long suffered with a crippling menstrual cycle. I'm only 23, but i've had ovarian cysts. Is a partial or full hysterectomy best for me?

It is also important to know what's the cause of the pain to know if a hysterectomy would help. Also knowing the cause would determine if the ovaries need to be removed - a full hysterectomy. ...Read more
