Hello!

Well no that is not a normal pattern. There are different possible explanations. I would advise follow up with your gynecologist. It could be that some condition has suppressed your menstrual cycle other than menopause such as hypothyroidism or PCOS or elevated prolactin . It could be that you are menopausal but now have some post - menopausal bleeding . The bot***** *****ne is that you need to have this checked out further .

I hope that this information is helpful.Let me know if you have further questions or concerns.I will be happy to get back with you.If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback.Thank you and Best Regards!

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
