It was June 1998 when I had my myomectomy done in a laparotomy procedure due to cyst on my left ovary( i was 28 yrs old then) - the obgyne said it is a dermoid cyst( 9 by 11 cm) at the same time i was 3-4 months pregnant( doc said it is the safest time for surgical procedure if one is pregnant) that time (primigravida). The cyst removed was fluid-filled and as big as a fetus head. By the 9th month, I gave birth to a healthy, normal baby boy by caesarean-section. After 4 yrs, my family migrated to another country and we tried to have another child but i don't know why I cannot conceive ( i still have irregular periods as always ---maybe that's why...) My only child is 7 yrs old now and still, I can't get pregnant plus the fact that i have amenorrhea for several months( say 3, 4 or 6 months). I don't know if amenorrhea cause my obesity problem now. Before i got married I weigh only 46-48 kg.(25 yrs old- my age then) but now...:confused: I weigh nearly 75 kg.( i am 36 yrs old now.) Please help... I don't know what's the problem---i only eat regular amount of food and have active lifestyle everyday ( such as climbing 5 floors of stairs, walking and living in a city). I wonder what's the reason for my weight gain /obesity problem...I want to have my normal weight and periods again. :confused:
