I started tamoxifen about a month ago. so far so good. i have not had any side effects.
I also am 38 years old and my period stopped during chemo - I have not had one since October - which was just fine with me. UNTIL Monday, I started spotting and having cramps - the usual menstrual kind. Then the past 2 days have been pretty heavy. I am so freaking disappointed. I was so glad not to have my period anymore - not to have to deal with it. I know alot of women don't feel this way, but I'm done having babies, and I wasn't having the menopausal symptoms, so I was pretty darn happy - treatments are over and no periods..... so - i guess i'll get to my question, instead of just ranting! -
what are your experiences with your period on tamoxifen? If I have this period, can I exprect it to be like this each month? Or is there a ray of hope that I might not have another? Is there anything I can do to not have one so heavy?
Also, if I haven't had side effects yet, is that a pretty good indication that I won't have any? I know the answers to these questions are probably different for everyone, and I will likely just have to see what the future holds, but, I'd still like to see what the majority of women have experienced.
