Re: Periods starting again so many months after chemotherapy.

Hi KB
My periods came back about six months after chemo and they were different sometimes barely there and other times heavy and now they're pretty erratic. I was warned that they may not come back and that even if they did I'd start the menopause early and that's exactly what's happening.

Periods starting again so many months after chemotherapy.

Hi all,
I just thought i'd pop on here. I don't come on here often but do occasionally have a nosy.
Basically i finished chemo way back in August last year and haven't had a period since, i thought perhaps i was going through early menapause because i do know that chemo can cause it. I am 45, so given my age i thought i must be going through it. However i have noticed just recently every month about this time i have a little show of blood. it's very,very light, It lasts for maybe a day or two then stops. I have noticed that it seems to be getting more and more, which makes me think i may be starting my periods again. Is this possible?
Is there anyone who are in the same boat and have started their periods so many months after chemo? and if so did they start really light?

Many thanks

Karen..x
