Gynecology

Watery vaginal discharge

06/27/2005

Question:

I am 50 years old and have been having a blood tinged watery discharge for 2 weeks, since my last period. I recently had an endometrial biopsey, due to a thickened lining. The biopsy was normal. Should I be concerned or just figure it is part of perimenopause?

Answer:

An endometrial biopsy would be the next step for the discharge you are describing. Knowing that it was normal is reasurring. If it persists, you should consult your gynecologist.
