    Hi winnie, what is your weight loss firstly, and secondly, do you exercise alot? This can happen to people if they are starving themselves, so it is common for anorexics to find their periods stop, and also athletes who are constantly training will find they stop having periods. Very rapid weight loss can make the body react as if it is being starved, and can disturb many of the normal body functions, which is why hair loss is common, and that could cause periods to stop. It may be that your diet is not high enough in iron, but as always, your first port of call should be your GP, and you do not say whether you have already been to yours, so do go if you havn’t already. xx

    Dear Winnie,

    Good to hear from you, and whoop whoop on the astounding weight loss, you are literally half the woman you were, and must look fabulous! Well, sounds like excercise is not the cause then, so pleased you feel great, which is likely to mean you are eating well, and yes, you could be going through the change, but I’m not convinced your periods would just stop dead at your age due to that, so lets hope the doctor’s test reveal the reason. That said, I do think the shock to your body of halving in weight is quite likely to have stopped your periods, and they may well just come back after a few months.

    You are doing all the right things, and seeing your GP, so try not to worry, just enjoy your new life!

    PS; Have you tried ringing Mr Summers secretary to leave a message, to ask if Mr Summers has heard of this happening before as a reaction to a massive weight loss following surgery? Might be an idea xx
