How irregular/regular was your period upon return? I had one 6 months after chemo (one month after being on Tamoxifin), but haven't had one since (I have an IUD). Hope the cycle I had means no menopause, but sure would like another one for reassurance.

    My period stopped during chemo. My last treatment was nov 5, 2011 and my period returned on march 17, about 8 months since i had last had it. Although it is shorter- about 3 days long, it has been very regular so far, every 3 weeks, to the day! I have not started tamoxifen yet, doc wanted me to finish rads first. I will be starting tamoxifen on Monday. Not sure what will happen with my period after that. I am young, just turned 30 in feb, that could make a difference. Best of luck!

    Hi Kellie, I believe we had our treatments about the same time (last one 10/31/11)... i still have not received mine, but do feel the side pains like I used to before the chemo. Just haven't seen any blood. Hoping that it does come back soon so I'm not entering menopause at 41. We'll see what happens :) Good luck to you!!

    Hi. I was 36 when I was dx. 42 now. First six to nine months on tamoxifen everything was normal. Then I got my period ONCE EVERY six to mine months. It was very heavy towards the end of fifth year. Never had heavy periods before. Good luck to you!! Sorry u have to deal with this at such a young age!!
