Hello, Anon!

Thank you for posting.

How old are you? If you’ve gone through menopause, you shouldn’t have any menstrual bleeding. Menopause means you haven’t had a period in at least one year. If you have any bleeding - even if it’s only spotting - you should see a doctor.

Bleeding is the most common symptom of endometrial or uterine cancer after menopause. Other common causes are inflammation and thinning of the vaginal lining or womb lining caused by lower estrogen levels. Cervical or womb polyps – growths that are usually non-cancerous. Sexually transmitted diseases like chlamydia and gonorrhea may cause spotting and bleeding after sex. Herpes sores can also bleed.

I hope you'll see your GYN soon. Keep us updated.
