I am 53 yrs old and have been in menopause for the past 4

Customer Question

I am 53 yrs old and have been in menopause for the past 4 years. About a year ago my GP put me on the pill Angelique as a form of HRT as I was not keen on full blown HRT, because my symptoms where very severe anxiety, hot flushes, and weight gain.
This last month I had a period which was very strange - which happened about 3 years ago and I had to have polyps removed.
The weight gain is a major concern, despite efforts to remove refined carbs and sugar from my diet.
I weight 118kg and im 5ft8inch tall - im over wieght as it s and cannot afford to put on more weight.
What would your advise be?

This should be considered post menopausal bleeding.

You need a full exam and pelvic ultrasound

any kind of bleeding like this needs immediate evaluation
