Thank you for the question.
Any bleeding from the vagina in a post-menopausal woman is considered 'postmenopausal bleeding'. While most cases of this are related to thinning of the lining of the vagina, uterus and urethra during menopause (due to the lack in estrogen), sometimes it can be related to pre-cancerous changes in the uterine lining.
You should not panic because the vast majority of the time there is no cancer, but you understand the need to check this out given your history. You need:
1. A referral to an OB/GYN
2. They should perform an exam and a biopsy from the inside of the uterus (very easy to do)
3. They should schedule you for an ultrasound
Does this help? Does this answer your question?
I am just checking to see if you got my answer.
