2 Bumps

Anyone had a hysterectomy and have trouble knowing when you are experiencing pms?

I was never regular so know I can't figure it out until it is too late, and I am b***** and have eaten everything in the kitchen. I have gained about 70 pounds since my surgery too.
How do you know when your cycle is?

  • Did they leave an ovary? If you don't have a uterus you don't get a period.

  • I never knew when my period was due and/or if I had PMS. When I was on Weight Watchers I always gained about 2 lbs. once a month around the same time, so I assumed it was right before my period. To be honest as far as the weight gain goes, this may or may not be related to your hysterectomy. I thought my weight gain was due to the hysterectomy, but it regretfully, was due to overeating.

  • If you have ovaries, you still get PMS symptoms, the same as your cycles would have been. You just don't get a period. The ovaries are responsible for the hormones that cause mood fluctuation, etc. So if your cycles had been 28 or 30 days, whatever, they are most likely still the same.

  • a period is when the lining of the uterus shed, but if there is no uterus there shouldnt be a peroid

  • I had my hysterectomy 14 years ago. I had PMS. Sometimes I could tell as I got use to it. Sometimes it would catch me off guard. Now I'm in menopause so I'm moody most of the time. Lol. Hot flashes from haites! Its horrible!
