My hormones went INSANE. Before surgery I had stopped having a period all together, I had been on Aygestin for years to stop my cycle, and it did, 3 weeks post op, I started spotting so my doctor put me back on the Aygestin. It didn't work. So he thought maybe some good old fashion birth control might work. Nope. Pure estrogen, nope, progesterone, nope. I finally had a D&C and THAT didn't stop the bleeding. I bled HEAVY more or less (14+ incontinence pads a day) for 6 months. I had to take FMLA leave because I was missing work it was so bad. There was no medical reason for the bleeding either. All my bloodwork showed the hormones were at the levels that should stop the bleeding. Finally, after about 8 months and when he put me back on a full dose of Aygestin again I stopped, but still have a period (even though I shouldn't). It's also made losing weight really hard, I am starving constantly. I"m also not eating the right things, so I know that's on me, but it has been a long road. I really hope that yours isn't as bad and it takes longer than almost 9 months for things to straighten out for you!
