Dear beth7658645:  In general, menopause is defined as a full year without a menstrual period.  It is not uncommon for women who are close to their natural menopause to become menopausal as a result of chemotherapy.  Nevertheless, we recommend that you consult with your gynecologist or oncologist who may measure your hormone levels to confirm your status.
