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.

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,

Dr. N. Scheufele

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.
