Hi I was just wondering if anyone has had there period or any spotting after treatment,no hysterectomy for me just radiation and chemo. I haven't had one since 9/03. 2 days ago I started spotting I just had a pap test in december and the results came back good. Just wondering if I will get my monthly back or does this seem normal
Thanks
Cin

I was treated in 2002...external radiation with chemo, followed by internal radiation. The treatments put me into menopause, so I've had no periods since my treatment. I didn't experience any spotting...although with everything your body's been thru, spotting may not be unusual...best to check with your doc just to make sure.

Good luck and God bless.

hi.i also had external and internal radiation and i have alot of spotting as well as heavy bleeding after sex. I have not had a period since my treatment. The doctors told me that the spotting was called breakthrough bleeding and it was normal. i am glad you had a good pap smear.
