If you had a hysterectomy then you should not have any vaginal bleeding ...

That is abnormal and needs evaluation ...

You would no longer have reason to have menstrual type bleeding..

A vaginal lesion such as an ulcer could be a cause though ..

Again see a gynecologist for exam to determine cause

I hope this is helpful for you
