I'm new here and am desperate for some answers. My periods stopped for 25 months, no changes to my cycle leading up to this. After 4 or 5 months I saw my GP who said that I was going through the menopause and continue to use contraception for 2 years. early September this year I came off Tamoxifen. 19th Oct I thought I was having a period, it looked like and felt like a period and lasted for 8 days when my periods were happening they only lasted 3 or occasionally 4 days. Went to the GP who referred me to a gynaecologist, saw them on 8th November, had a physical exam they took a biopsy, she could only get a small sample which she said was positive. I bled slightly after this and the following day had a transvaginal ultrasound, Friday 11th November I started bleeding again and today is day 19 bleeding, not heavy this time but pretty consistent although has been lighter for the past 3 days. I also had a colposcopy as there was inflamation on my cervix which has now been ruled as normal although I did have HPV, but nothing to worry about. I also had a blood test for cancer markers which was negative. The biopsy was negative and the ultrasound showed that my endometrium was 8mm, apparantly normal for being on tamoxifen and I have a small complex cyst on my left ovary. I have a repeat ultrasound on 16th December and today I had a hysteroscopy, which looked normal and she took another biopsy to be sure.
Its great that they seem to be ruling out cancer but I am now getting really frustrated as they dont seem to be interested in why I am bleeding, could it be I just didnt go through the menopause before. I cant go on HRT because of previous breast cancer and have now gone on anti - depressants to try and help with the mood swings, swinging continually from angry to crying - I know it has only been 6 weeks but at the moment I cant see any light at the end of the tunnel and am beginning to really feel not listened too.
