First question I got is Does Medifast really work well for weight loss? Thanks for any answer or 2. My 2nd question... Has anyone else had this experience? I had my.

Surgery.

Dec. 6 and one week post.

Surgery.

I had a raging infection with a rash all over and my PERIOD started... I am usually pretty irregular, however, I am on day 8 of a period that is stll pretty heavy.........it just seems like there is no end in sight to it.... my surgeon says hormones are all over the place but I would feel more at ease right now if I knew someone else had gone through this.... it is really annoying!..

Yep, although you might want to make sure and wait for another person to confirm this as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you ask the Medifast guys because they can answer you better...

My first periods were really heavy. Didn't have the infection. But had the heavy periods. Your hormones are all wacked out. Plus I was on.

Coumadin.

(blood thinner) for the first 6 weeks, I think, and it made my periods heavier as well as your blood just doesn't clot, I mean that is why you take the crap. Do they have you on any blood thinners to prevent blod clotting in your legs? An.

Aspirin.

A day? Comadin?.

Lovenox.

Injections? That all will make your period heavier. I was always a 3 day very light girl and My first couple of periods were like 8 days and HEAVY! (and crampy)..

It does get better!!! Hang in there!.

I was just about to ask about this very same thing. I just woke up with my period and it is heavy and now I can't tell if the pain in my stomach is cramps or pain from the pouch. The thing is that this is my second time having my period this month. I had it at the beginning of the month right before my.

Surgery.

And now it's only been like 2 and a half weeks since I had my period. I am typically not regular at all- I usually go about 3 months without it so this is just so unusual and uncomfortable....

So I guess I'm not the only one?..

I got my period the week I came home too... awful cramps! it is pretty normal... as a nurse, I will tell you that many women (even pre-menopausal) come into the hospital for.

Surgery.

And end up getting their periods off schedule. Stress, hormones, whatever... it sucks...

Hi! Hate to bring bad news, but I had my.

Surgery.

On November 22, and I haven't stopped my period since! It is finally getting a little less heavy, and I know it's just changes in hormones due to less fat. Hang in there!..
