Hello,bleeding like this can be caused by the condition of the vaginal mucosa, so a local lack of hormones can play a role. Nevertheless an examination is generally required when such a bleeding occurs after menopause to exclude a serious reason. So please visit your OB/GYN as planned and you will be on the safe side.Kind regards,Dr. N. Scheufele
