crohns and my period.. this ones for the ladies gentlemen

by brittany
(fla)

ive been diagnosed with crohns for a year now and this month i missed my period. ive had my menstrual cycle for 9 years now and have never once missed a period... always been fairly normal. have not been sexually active for about 5 months now so pregnancy is pretty farfetched. has anyone had crohns related problems with missing their menstrual cycle or could there be other reasons ive skipped a month? also ive had problems being about a week or so late these last few months which is unual for me. can anyone explain this to me?

chrohns and menstrual
by: Anonymous

Ever since I had chrohns (18yrs now), I have had trouble with the menstrual cycle. The flare ups alwasys got worse during this. Eventually I started to have GI bleed every cycle and had to get blood transfusions. None of my doctors would believe that my period effected my chrohns this way. Finally talked to a gynecologist after 20 blood transfusions and he put me on Lybrel which stops you menstrual cycle altogether. He didn't have an explanation for my predicament but so far the last seven years, no gi bleed.

normal
by: Anonymous

hey brittany,
I had the same thing happen to me and I went straight to my doctor. He said it is VERY normal for women with -active- crohns to have irregular periods (spotting, less than normal amts, etc) or to miss it completely. It's a good idea to make your family doctor/specialist aware, just to kind of keep the "medical resume" updated, though. My doctor has reassured me that when the crohns is in remission, my cycle will go back to normal.. Our bodies are going through so much right now, and especially if you're on steroids as well, your hormone levels are nowhere near normal.
good luck

Weight loss?
by: Vanessa

Maybe you have anemia or I agree with the last comment about the fat. Did you loss a lot of weight recently? If not, you should take an appointment with your doctor just to verify. I was super sick this year, I lost around 45 pounds and I did not get my period for 5 months (I got them back when I got a lot of my weight back).
Good luck and keep us updated :)

Not enough fat
by: Michelle

It is most likely due to the fact that you do not have enough fat to allow your menstrual cycle it also could be related to nutrition issues.

Good Luck and Good Health
