Am 57 and had menopause at 55. I had very very light blood

Customer Question

Am 57 and had menopause at 55. I had very very light blood in vaginal discharge a month ago. Occurred a couple of times - never bright red spotting but could see it when I wiped. Saw OBN/GYN who did transvaginal ultrasound and pelvic exam. Found nothing. Said I looked totally healthy. Endometrium thin, no polyps observed. But now 2 weeks later I again see a little bloody in my normal discharge in underwear (super light - but there) and if I insert white cloth partially into vagina it is not red but pinkish/yellowish. No smell, no burning/itiching nor pain. Any thoughts? Not an everyday thing - but noticed it a week ago also after I did a 10 mile run.

Hello,

if a problem like this occurs after menopause and after a time of more than 1 year without bleeding, a dilation and curettage is generally recommended. This is only a small ambulatory surgery and you will be on the safe side. Speak to your OB/GYN about it.

Best regards,
