    Chemotherapy can affect your period. Depending upon ones age, chemotherapy can thrust a patient into early menopause with all the "wonderful" side effects of menopause. The closer one is to menopausal age when starting chemotherapy, the less chance periods will return when treatment is finished.

    Tamoxifen also affects your period. I am 41 and have been on tamoxifen for two years. I have not had a period since October of last year. Each person is unique so be sure to check with your doctor.
