Gastric balloon for weight loss is a new procedure that helps so many things but one thing you may not realize is, that it can help regulate your cycle for peace of mind and ease as you age. Yes, please!

Recent studies have shown a link between obesity and long or irregular menstrual cycles. An “irregular” period means it’s not normal for you  — it’s early or late, heavier or lighter than usual, doesn’t show up at all, or comes randomly. Many people have irregular periods at some point in their life, or even throughout their life. If you have irregular periods, and depending on your personal situation, lowering your BMI could help regulate your cycle and make your “monthly” more comfortable and/or predictable.

If you’re overweight, your body may produce an excess amount of estrogen, one of the hormones that regulate the reproductive system in women. Excess estrogen can affect how often you have periods, and can also cause your periods to stop.

Our gastric balloon for weight loss procedure could be a great tool for you to start your weight loss journey and lower your BMI. It’s helped so many jumpstart their new lifestyle routine and in turn, drop weight rapidly.

We know that suggesting a lower BMI isn’t as easy as it sounds but that’s why we’re so passionate about sharing this new procedure. It’s an outpatient procedure, comes with expert support, and even if you don’t have bariatric insurance on your policy, it’s affordable. The cash price of this procedure for the difference it can make to your well-being is worth every penny.

Investigating the Effects of Weight Loss Surgery on Menstrual Cycles: A Research Study

The Stanford University School of Medicine conducted a study to examine the impact of weight loss surgery on the menstrual cycles of 126 obese women between the ages of 18 and 49. The participants had an average body mass index (BMI) of 46 before the surgery. Prior to the surgery, 52 percent of the women reported having regular periods, 39 percent reported having irregular periods and 22 percent reported having no periods.

After 12 months, the average BMI of the participants was down to 33. Of the women who had previously reported irregular menses, 99 percent were back to having regular periods. Additionally, nearly 82 percent of the women who reported having no periods before the surgery started having regular menses. This study shows that weight loss surgery can positively affect the menstrual cycles of obese women.
