Period after ectopic

Post by buckley27 »

Hello I have polosystic ovaries and I've had an operation in September 13th 2023 to remove my fallopian tube because of my ectopic pregnancy, I only found out about my (pcos) when I was in hospital for my operation as I never knew this and just thought I didn't have periods because of my contraception.

I've still not had a period since June 2023, I bled after the operation but I wouldn't class that as a period, is this normal to not have a period for nearly 9 months? Really worried that I can't have children.

Dear buckley,
I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy loss,
Unfortunately we are unable to provide personalised medical advice. I have however added NHS information on PCOS and infrequent or no periods can be a symptom. ... rome-pcos/

Not having periods is going to impact on your chance of concieving. I would suggest seeking medical advice to properly diagnose the cause for you not having periods and you may also be able get some treatment to help fertility issues associated with PCOS.

Sending much love,
