I found this link help ful about changes in period cycles due to weight gain/weight loss.
menstrual cycle changes?
I'd like to add to it. My issues is a little different and wanted to know if anyone else had this issue. I'm overweight and have recently started this journey. 330 lbs to be exact. My period is not normal. It's heavy, lasts super long, comes too often, etc. I have no other health problems that I know of. Instead of the normal flow of 5-7 days, off for 3 weeks...mine is the opposite.
Off for a week, and a constant steady, light to medium flow the rest of the month.
. My "period" lasts for about 3 weeks, maybe more, stops for a week or so and then returns.
I suppose I should see a doctor...I just hate doctors. They're so judgemental and just brush off issues. All of the doctors I've seen all brush it off with one diganosis: You're too fat. You're overweight and need to lose weight.
Has anyone else experienced similar issues? Did you seek further treatment until you got answers? Or am I really just "too fat".
*edit* not on birth control, never have been...not on any medications, take a daily multi vitamin.
