Sometimes surgery can throw off your cycle a bit, but by six months, it should be back to normal. Best to see your gynecologist.

I would discuss this with your primary care physician or OBGYN.  Placement of implants should not alter so many of your cycles over such a long period of time.

Lack of period should be addressed by your gynecologist, have you checked a pregnancy test? Also poor diet can lead to lack of period. Eat healthy, see your gynecologist and be safe. Good luck….

Thank you for your question.  I am unaware of any connection between breast augmentation and amenorrhea.  Of course follow up with your plastic surgeon but I think a consult with year gynecologist is important.  There are several metabolic factors which can lead to failure to have your.   In these must be addressed by your gynecologist.

Having implants placed should not alter your menstrual cycle for six months. This is something you should discuss with your OB/GYN.
