Return of period after chemo, radio, & 5yr tamoxifen

Hi everyone,
I was diagnosed with BC in 2009 age 30. I had a breast reconstruction, then 4 months chemo, 15 sessions of radio, and I’ve just finished 5 yrs on tamoxifen. I haven’t had a period since my first chemo treatment in sept 2009 but I’ve started bleeding this morning and have quite bad what I think feel like period pains. It’s only been 6 days since I stopped the tamoxifen is this normal I should I make a appointment with my GP?
Any advice would be greatly received
Thank you
