My lap-myomectomy was on 3 weeks back.(sumucous fibroid).I was bleed 6-7 days.Now my period came 10 days late.Is it normal? It was regular before myo.

Not unusual: If the fibroid was submucosal, then the uterine lining was disrupted during the surgery so it is not unusual to expect some bleeding associated with that, it is also not unusual that you would have normal "period bleeding" separate form the postoperative bleeding. None of this sounds worrisome. ...Read more

Period came a few days late this month and only lasted 4 days instead of the usual 6 days. Should I be concerned about this?

Not necessarily: As long as the timing between periods is similar and not off in time by less than a week, I doubt there is a problem. My guess is that you normally has heavy menstrual periods and have been blessed with a shorter and perhaps lighter one this time ! If you have more questions, please discuss with your OB if choice ...Read more

If you are sexually active the first thing to check for is pregnancy, so get a test ASAP. If not then there may be hormonal variations or abnormalities, infections, stress among others that could be causing this.

Period came one week late; it's been 5 days since I had an u/s, 11mm endometrium. Is it normal to have light, red spotting instead of a "normal" flow?

Period came one week late; it's been 5 days since I had an u/s, 11mm endometrium. Is it normal to have light, red spotting instead of a "normal" flow?

Delayed ovulation: This is usually caused by infrequent (not regular) ovulation. The longer you go between periods, the thicker the uterine lining builds. So when you finally do have your menses it can be heavy and long. The spotting you are having is probably not a real period. It sounds like the lining is slowly breaking down and leaking out. BCPs can keep your menses regular. You should check pregnancy test. ...Read more
