Exemestane and periods

Hello, I am currently on 3 monthly prostap injections and exemestane. Ive been on Prostap a year and exemestane since Dec 23. Today I have started bleeding and im trying not to freak out too much, as I thought this wasnt supposed to happen. Has this happened to anyone else? Who do I approach about it? Thanks xx

Hello Hannahh

Thank you for posting.

It is understandable that you are feeling concerned. Sometimes women experience bleeding when taking drugs for breast cancer such as exemestane and prostap. Bleeding can sometimes occur because of vaginal dryness which is a known side effect.

However, because you have experienced this, we would suggest you contact your breast care nurse or breast care team. They may want you to see you so they can assess you and advise you about the best thing to do.
