    tbh i think you see your doctor.. does your period start more or less the same time every month?

    mine are a bit irratic after 4 months - lasts 4/5 days but no cramps or pain that i suffered pre my myomectomy in february, which is good. Ask your doctor to give you a check up, for bloods, iron level, BP.. high or low, remember your body has been through a MASSIVE trauma ( 25 was removed) from me, our bodies need time to heal. work on your diet, greens, beetroot, apples and carrots, blend it up cut it and blend. It worked well for me pre and post.. let me know how you get on. x

    I had the opposite problem where I was bleeding nonstop for 2 months after the surgery. I had to go back on birth control and am now on a regimen where I only take the placebo pills every 3 months.

    Hey @Ukgold,

    I hope you managed to get to the bottom of this concern. I was under the impression that periods can be extremely light or not come at all if there is scar tissue which prevents the blood from flowing out. You may be having a regular cycle but the blood cannot make its way out. Do you have any other symptoms, such as pain, bloating and ordinary PMS?
