I was wondering if anyone in menopause for a while has all of a sudden gotten a period or spotting that won't go away ? I know being on tamoxifen could result in uterine cancer and I have had a biopsy that came back fine, the Dr. said come back in a year for your annual ? I'm perplexed, is this normal ?
Dear 1lostinspace, From your post, it sounds like you are continuing to bleed-am I correct? it may well be related to your tamoxifen. One possibility is that you could have a polyp in the lining, which may not have been picked up by the biopsy; another test that could be done is a sonohysterogram, looking for polyps. So if all your bleeding is resolved, great-but if you are continuing to bleed, do check in with your gynecologist to see if (s)he thinks you would benefit by further testing. Good luck, Mary Jane
I am 38 and my lmp was 7/26/12 my husband and I was very active in July after my June cycle and August after my July cycle during my fertile days. I have been feeling tingling in my breast for the last month and I have been having hot flashes not normal, moments of dizzy spells & periodic sickness, I took 3 urine pregnancy tests they was negative. Not able to get to the doc for a few wks. I've had abnormal periods in the past but I was not sexually active then. Can I be premenopausal, over weight or stressed? My husband and I are trying to have more children. With my older children the pregnancy wasn't detected unit I was 2 to 3 months along. Can you help me?
