If you had surgery then yes, it's possible that it has had an effect on your periods. As has been said previously, stress can cause periods to become more irregular.

Medicine can also effect your cycle so if you have been on any prior to or following surgery, this is another possible cause.

Don't worry, it will settle down but it is natural for your body, especially your hormones, to react in such a way when it has suffered a trauma such as appendictis and subsequently surgery.

I had my appendix removed too, but it didn't affect my period or anything, but I guess it could. If it's nothing bad, like just irregular or something, don't worry about it, but if you really think it's serious, see a doctor. hope i helped =)

you probably should see a doctor about that. if your peirod was fine before the surgery, then it did get messed up. so i guess it does affect your peirod. the doctor could give you medicine to stop thoughs screwed-up peirods from happening. i hope i helped.

Stress can certainly affect your period. Surgery is stressful so it probably is the cause.

Best thing for you to do would be to ask your doctor during your follow-up visit. If it is really bothering you, call your doctors office and ask to talk to his/her nurse. They will be happy to answer your questions for you. :)

Its very likely that the surgery has affected your period. Your body was traumatized, any change to your body could cause a 'chain-reaction' in your body, one thing leads to another... When you go to the doctor for follow-up I would mention it to him and see what he says. Also if you are in your teens even if you have always been regular due to your constant hormonal changes your time could change. By the way if you have started hanging out daily or almost all the time with a female friend, your cycle could change to hers, sounds really odd I know but you can look it up it happens when women work together alot or live together etc...

Hope this helps.

not to sure about it but if your period was regular before you had surgury and after its not then im sure the surgury had something to do with it. I'd see a doctor and tell him/her about it to see what they have to say. they'll have the answer for you
