Do Her2 + women hr negative need tamoxifen if their periods return

Hi im HER2 positive
Hr negative
Had 6 months of Taxotere, Carboplatin, Herceptin, followed by another 6 months of Herceptin
19 radiotherapy sessions
Lumpectomy and sentinal node removal
No lymph nodes affected.
Im 47 years old
Periods have re started.
Will my oestrogen have to be surpressed with tamoxifen, or will my hr negative status mean I wont need further treatment
