This is Dr. David

infection can cause bleeding

but the most worrisome thing is a uterine cancer causing vaginal bleeding in an elderly post menopausal woman.

if you have bleeding, you need to see your gyn doctor

and get a uterine ultrasound

and a uterine biopsy to check for uterine cancer.

that is the most important thing to check for

do you have a gyn doctor you can see who can check for this?
