OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Owen, OB/GYN (Doctor) replied 8 years ago

Hello,

Since you are having bleeding, this is most likely from vaginal atrophy - basically a dry vagina from not having any estrogen available. This can also be a thyroid problem, polyps, or even a cervical or endometrial uterine cancer (unlikely, but this needs to be evaluated).

So, you should make an appointment to see your ob/gyn to get a pelvic exam, a pelvic ultrasound to look at your pelvic organs, an Endometrial Uterine Biopsy, a PAP smear if you have not had one in over a year, and a TSH thyroid blood test.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
