Tummy has cellulite of a pregnant woman, after abortion

I am 22 , I had an abortion a year back, however after the abortion, on and off menstrual periods come like every 2 -3 months once, and also weight has been pounding on, tummy has grown like a pregnant woman (the cellulite patterns on the tummy ), which is different looking from the cellulites of a normal fat person. Face has definitely put on the weight, arms are flabbier. I cant find an answer out there, as I been trying and Im not sure if the doctor can do anything about it.

I truly hope someone can help me , as from a uk 10 , Im now a uk 16.. in a year which is demoralizing me every single day.

Hello there! Thank you so much for your advice. Nope I have not changed my diet, in fact I'm eating lesser than the past hoping to lose some weight. Will see a doctor soon, and hopefully things become alright, been v worried about it.

Hi Anon

A termination would not cause your face and arms to gain so much weight and pregnant women have tight skin on their tummies, not a dimpled, cellulite look so it may be that whatever is going on has nothing to do with your abortion.

This is a lot of weight to gain if you have not changed your eating and exercising patterns at all (have you?) and warrants a doctor's visit. You may need to have blood tests run that includes your thyroid and other hormones.

Please make an appointment and good luck!
