    I have only had 2 cycles since finishing in Oct 2011. Sucks doesnt it. Are you on Tamoxofin? My onc told me 1/3 have their period while on tamo, 1/3 dont, and 1/3 are irregular.

    Mine too. I finished in March and I have maybe had one true period. How old are you? I am 36 and my onc told me if I were 10 years older I would most certainly enter menopause, 10 years younger and I would most certainly regain a regular cycle and fertility. At my age, it's more of a crap shoot. I am all done having kids, and I have no symptoms of menopause, so I guess I may just have an irregular cycle for a while. Oh well...it's not the worst thing to happen! Haha!

      It will most likely...eventually! I have a friend who is a 6 year survivor - dx at 29 - and is pregnant and due with a baby boy in Sept. You'll be fine! :)

    Thanks ladies, I am suppose to be on tamoxifen but haven't decided if I want to yet so my oncologist gave me the prescription and told me to fill it when I'm ready, I don't mind having a period out of whack if I missed a month here and there but god I'm having it 20 days apart' lol .... I guess time will heal my body :) thank u for your reply girls
