FEC & Periods

I’ve jsut had cycle 4 of Fec. I had one period during cycle 1 then they stopped. Howevere, I have had really heaving bleeding for the past day or so- much much heavier than my normal period. Is this normal or should I be worried?


sorry heavy not heaving !!!

Hi Flower,
Have had my periods as well throughout the duraction of my chemo. Quite heavy too and very red compared to my normal period. I have polycystic ovary and not used to having regular periods but surprisingly during chemo it became really regular. My oncologist says it does happen to some patients and as my blood count is ok most of the time , I have luckily completed my 6 cycles of FEC. Do mention it to your oncologist if it worries you. Good luck on your treatment and hope everything goes well.
