In brief: Please clarify.

It is unclear from your question what you are asking.
Most breast cancers are estrogen-sensitive and can be treated with anti-estrogen medication (tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors). Many women who are peri menopausal when receiving traditional chemotherapy develop ovarian suppression from the chemo and effectively "go into" menopause. I hope this helps.
