Vaginal Bleeding After Menopause: 9 Things That Can Cause It, And When To Be Concerned
January 31, 2018
If a woman has gone through menopause (that is, haven’t had a period in at least 12 months), she is not expected to have vaginal bleedings anymore. But if you're postmenopausal and experience bleeding from the vagina, it's imperative that you tell your gynecologist about this symptom.
In some cases, a woman ceases to have periods and assumes she is menopausal. And then, much to her surprise, monthly bleedings resume. This means that the menopause isn't really over. But in women who are actually postmenopausal, there is a number of causes of vaginal bleeding, some of which are not dangerous and relatively easy to treat. More serious causes include cancers of the reproductive organs.
