Hi, I haven’t posted on here for a long time, but something have started happening and I wondered if anyone else had the same thing. 

So I was diagnosed  with breast cancer in March 2019, at aged 38. I had chemo and radiation therapy, during which my periods stopped for the duration. In April 2020 my periods started again but once I started taking tamoxifen they stopped. Since then I have probably had only 3 or 4 periods in the last 3 years. 

In mid June this year after almost a year of nothing, I had a period for 10 days, I thought it would just be another once a year thing but I have come on my period again today, I don’t know what to make of this, are my periods becoming regular again, I’m so confused. Has this happened to anyone else? 

many thanks
