Spotting way after menopause
I am 10 years past Menopause (57) the last few day a very light spotting has occured. I just had my well woman exam everything ok. ( three weeks ago). I am overweight and was just dianosed with type D. I also just had hernia surgery 3 weeks ago.
Any bleeding after menopause should be evaluated by your clinician. It is important to determine that the cause of the bleeding is not cancer or a pre-cancerous condition.
