Zoladex / Tamoxifen

Hi all - I was put on Zoladex before I started my chemo, which was in March last year - I had my last injection in July, and I’ve not had any periods or any information on what happens next - almost 7 months now - I am on Tamoxifen though, been on it for nearly 5 monhts now, would that make any difference?

Hi bettymoo

This might be something our Helpline could help with.  They’ll be open again tomorrow at 9.00am (9-5 weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays.  0808 800 6000)

Very best wishes

Hi Bettymoo

many ladies experience changes to their menstrual cycle while taking tamoxifen which means that if you haven’t had your menopause your periods may become irregular. Some women find that their periods stop. They usually start again within 6 to 12 months of treatment finishing. However, for some women who are close to the time of their natural menopause they don’t start again

Hope that makes sense
