Thank you for your question. Loss of an excessive amount of weight can be caused by infections, emotional stress, hormonal fluctuations, or chronic illness such as cancer.You have lost about 10 lbs/month over the last three months. This large amount of weight loss is commonly associated with malignancies of the body.
We are not mentioning this to alarm you but it is important that you take this fact into consideration and promptly go to your doctor to be evaluated as soon as possible. Given the fact that you are experiencing uterine bleeding and abdominal pain your loss of appetite may be related to a a problem with your reproductive system, or hormonal imbalances. We recommend that you promptly seek an in person evaluation from your doctor for sudden weight loss. You may be required to undergo a pelvic examination, ultrasound, along with blood testing to evaluate to assist in the evaluation of your symptoms. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.
