How much weight a woman can gain while ovulating and cycle, when is this gain expected? Can clotting and heavy periods cause bloating and weight gain all the time, I just can't loss weight

How much weight a woman can gain while ovulating and cycle, when is this gain expected? Can clotting and heavy periods cause bloating and weight gain all the time, I just can't loss weight

Very little: Weight from hormone fluctuations during a monthly cycle can go up/down a small amount, most often right before or on the first few days of actual menstrual flow. But, this is just a small amount and is not the cause of overall difficulty losing weight. See doctor to review nutrition, exercise, other health/metabolism issues that might need intervention. ...Read more

Will i gain weight after a hysterectomy? I know there will be hormone issues after my hysterectomy. Does this mean i will gain weight? How can I prevent weight gain during recovery?

.

That : That is a good question. Women have different responses to the hormonal changes after hysterectomy. As always, any exercise program you can start once your doctor clears you will help. Some women can consistently walk a mile every day, some prefer to go to a gym. Find a nutritional program that is right for you. While in the hospital, you could ask for a nutritional consult to get advice. Ask your doctor whether you will need hormone replacement after surgery as this can affect weight gain and loss. Many women do not have weight gain after surgery but it is good that you are planning ahead for your health. ...Read more

Don't wait longer: If you normally have regular, monthly menses, and you are not currently on any form of hormonal birth control, then you are probably undergoing an extended cycle without an ovulation. This is the most common cause of a missed period. See your doctor for a second pregnancy test. If it's negative, they can prescribe you a short course of Progesterone to induce your period and "reset" your system. ...Read more
