tamoxifen & periods returning?


Re: tamoxifen & periods returning?

Hi Angie


I started tamoxifen in October and have had intermittent bleeding over the last two months. I assumed it was still just my body getting used to the tamoxifen but mentioned it to my BCN when I saw her last week. She told me to speak to my GP and get a two week referral to gyneacology for a scan to check things.


She said it could be a number of things... thickening of the womb lining, starting a natural menapause, polyps etc but need to rule out cancer of the womb as there is an increased risk with tamoxifen.


Am now waiting for my gynea appointment.

tamoxifen & periods returning?

hi all

i started tamoxifen in september last year and today (8 months later) i appear to be starting with periods again? is this normal. i'm 50 so i didnt expect this to kick off again, but i do have a mirena coil for endymetriosis so i wondered if i could be that.

any ideas ladies?
