Brief Answer: biopsy Detailed Answer: Hi I know its worrying to get period after stopping for so long. I don't want to scare you but this needs to be evaluated. Hence follow my advice below 1. Get ultrasound scan done to check endometrial thickness, fibroids, polyp or mass. 2. Get examination and pap smear done by your gynecologist. 3. Get endometrial biopsy done to rule out cancer though unlikely it is better to be safe seeing your history. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
