Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
So you should have this evaluated as this could be a polyp, a fibroid, menopause, dysplasia(precancer) or cancer which is unlikely, but it should be ruled out and evaluated. So you need a pelvic exam, a pelvic ultrasound, a PAP, an endometrial biopsy. I hope this helps, if you have more questions please ask, pleas click on ACCEPT, thank you

This was going on last year too, and when I went for my check up, pap, pelvic examine, etc. Everything was okay. So this could be because im going through perimenopause?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 6 years ago.
Yes most likely perimenopause and once you have no periods for 12 months then you are considered to be in menopause. I hope this helps, please click on ACCEPT, thank you
