Tamoxifen and vulvar pain: I was recently diagnosed with early breast cancer after taking HRT for 10 years after menopause, mainly to manage vulvodynia symptoms. As a preventative, my oncologist wants me to use tamoxifen for 5 years. Tamoxifen blocks estrogen in the body, so reduces the risk of cancer returning. Does anyone have any experience of managing vulvodynia while taking tamoxifen. i'd be grateful to learn if it's making you worse and how you're coping.
