Customer Question

I'm 63. Had a hysterectomy 20 years ago. Kept my ovaries. I am having a light brown discharge on wiping. It lasts for a couple of days and then nothing for weeks. I had it 5 years ago and I was put on vaginal pessaries. It stopped it but I haven't used them for a few years. I'm worried sick I have cancer and no cure.

Hello,

slight bleedings like this can occur due to hormon deficiency. I think this is the reason in your case, because vaginal pessaries are the right treatment then. To reassure you, a visit to your OB/GYN can help, but this is definitely no sign of cancer, so there´s no reason to worry.

Best regards,
