Patient: I had surgery on my knee in May and my period has not come since. Is this common?
Thanks for the reply.
Although periods can get altered after a surgery, it may not happen for so long. There could be a mild hormonal imbalance, however, the periods may resume after one month. In your case, it has been quite some time since your last cycles. We need to evaluate the cause. Uterine causes like endomteriosis, tuberculosis, ovarian causes like polycystic ovaries, ovarian hormonal imbalance, general causes like anemia, thyroid disorders have to be ruled out. Reduce stress levels and have a healthy diet.
