Postmenopausal bleeding after stopping tamoxifen
I was diagnosed at age 47 and was on tamoxifen for just over 3 years, which I recently stopped. Was perimenopausal upon starting it and stayed that way for over a year. I'm 51 now and have not had a period for 25 months. Well, 3 days ago, I started what looks and is acting like a period. Was heavy for 2 days and is now getting a little bit lighter, but still going steadily. I'm thinking the uterine lining, which had built up a little, is possibly shedding now, can't believe it would be an ovulatory period at this point. Wondering if anybody else had a similar situation? I know that I have to call my Gyn soon and will probably need a biopsy. Am not really worried that it could be uterine cancer, as a sono 6 months ago just showed a slightly thick lining of 8mm and I believe these things are very slow growing.
