    Post Menopause BleedingMenopause is official when a woman experiences the following:

    1. No menstrual periods for 12 months.
    2. No more eggs in the ovaries.
    3. No estrogen production.

    Any bleeding after menopause should be evaluated by a doctor. The cause of the bleeding usually has to do with waning hormones, polyps, or fibroids. However, sometimes the bleeding is related to a pre-cancerous or cancerous lesion inside the uterus.

    Bleeding after menopause can be alarming, but it is not cause for panic. At the Memorial Center for Menopausal Medicine, Pamela Gaudry, M.D., will make sure that you are fully informed about what is happening and will explain your options to you. She may recommend an ultrasound, endometrial biopsy, or cervical and uterine dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure. She will only proceed when you are fully informed and comfortable with your decision. Gaudry will work with you to get to the root of the problem and ensure that your uterus, tubes, and ovaries are healthy.
