I had breast cancer 7yrs ago and my periods stopped due to the treatment but now I think there starting again, is that normal?
Possibly but you're . Menses can stop due to chemotherapy and often resume again after some length of time which can be several years later.

What to do if I had breast cancer a couple of years ago, and when I started chemotherapy, my periods were stopped, is this normal?
Not rare. ...Depending on the chemo. Permanent or temporary loss of ovarian function is a common side effect of chemo. Some patients have no periods for more than a year and then restart them, others end up with early menopause. You are still young so it's possible they will restart.

Is there a safe treatment for heavy periods after triple negative breast cancer. Am not on any medication or contraception.
Probably but... .....You are very young and had a triple negative breast cancer. I do not know about uk standards for brca testing but you could carry a brca mutation (especially brca1). If so, preventative hysterectomy with ovarian surgery would be a consideration and that would take care of your problem. Discuss it with your doc. Best to you. Read more...
