What could be causing my stomach pain and irregular period?

I’m confused with my body. I had my son four months ago. This is my second child. I was induced due to my doctor being busy around my due date. Since I had my son, I haven’t had a period, and when my stomach is being pushed on, it’s an excruciating pain throughout my entire stomach. I have no appetite, and I’ve lost more than 30 pounds. I am scheduled for a doctor’s appt soon. I just want to know what people think could cause this—post anonymous.

Did the dr make any incisions anywhere or have to sew anything up? I had a friend this happened to and the dr left a sponge inside her😞

C section or normal delivery? Do you still have your appendix? Lots of variables

Wonder if they didn’t fully deliver the placenta

It could be gallbladder related, appendix, maybe they didn’t deliver all of the placenta. If you had a c-section, maybe they left something inside. There’s so many possibilities. Are you feverish, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea? I might would go to an urgent care…30lbs in 4 months is a lot to lose unless you were severely obese before but even then…that’s a lot.

It could be your gallbladder. Happened to my ex sister in law after she had her baby. Def go see a doc right away.

You are only four months postpartum. It takes a long time sometimes for your body to get back to “normal”. Definitely see a doctor about the stomach pain but the irregular period is normal. Also I would never agree to be induced to fit into a doctors schedule. Any doctor can deliver your baby. In my opinion I would rather let my body go into labor naturally than force it by induction which can be very hard on a lot of women.

Go to the doctor ASAP! If you feel unwell and are in pain, and losing weight you don’t think you should be losing, you need a doctor to check you out.

Go to a doctor - excruciating pain , no appetite and weight loss indicate that you need an ultrasound and further examination- this can’t be done via Facebook. Abnormal symptoms require a physical and work up based on symptoms.

I really feel like this is an ER visit. It sounds like gall bladder to me. Also nobody has mentioned it but loss of appetite can be PPD or anxiety. Are you nervous about taking care of 2 babies? Or depressed? It doesn’t explain the stomach pain though.

I’d go to the ER for the pain like right now. You shouldn’t still be experiencing abdominal pain at this point in postpartum. Something could be seriously wrong in your uterus. As for the period irregularity, I didn’t get a period for 9months with my eldest, my youngest is 17months and I still haven’t gotten one- but my Dr said everything checked out in my blood work and when he checked out my insides… so that’s more than likely completely normal yet, especially if you’re breastfeeding/pumping milk. But please go in for your pain, that’s not normal at all.

If you’ve been uncomfortable for a while, there is always the possibility that not all the placenta was delivered/expelled. That could make you feel ill, easily.

In essence, definitely warrants a professional opinion. Wishing you swift answers and relief.
