I had an open myomectomy 5 months ago, haven't had period since. Didn't hv Luperon. Have a Mirena (levonorgestrel) but always had a period with it before the surgery.?

Menses are expected: To normalize after myomectomy & can improve chances of pregnancy if that is the goal. So I suspect your lack of a period is due to the Mirena (levonorgestrel). .. but I do not know why you are having a different effect with it now than before surgery. Perhaps stopping cyclic bleeding would have happened anyway, even without surgery, which would not be unusual with a Mirena (levonorgestrel). Not of concern unless pursuing pregnancy ...Read more
