I know this is going to sound ridiculous to many out there but I want to go back on the pill full time to stop my periods as I will be relocating to a part of the world where it can be very inconvenient/unhygenic. I have been taking Tamoxifen for about a year and wondering if birth control pills and Tam cancel each other out or if there is just reduced effectiveness or what? I read on a webmd forum that one woman took both Tam and birth control pills with approval of 2 of her doctors as the pill was very low dose. Nearly all the literature says not to do it but nothing really explains why or consequences if you do. Anyone have any insight or experience with this?
My BC was slow-growing and I had surgery 6 months ago - nodes negative, no chemo or radiation recommended but I've been told to take Tamoxifen for 10 years.
