Post Menopause & Bleeding

After the menopause (1 year after cessation of periods) it’s not normal to experience vaginal bleeding. Sometimes this can present with heavy bleeding or just spotting, perhaps the bleeding occurred after intercourse.

A though history and physical examination is required to determine the cause and appropriate treatment. In some cases further tests to rule out infection or an ultrasound scan may be recommended.

What to expect from your appointment:

  • Consultation with one of our female consultant gynaecologists

  • Thorough history and pelvic examination

  • Transvaginal ultrasound scan if appropriate

  • Smear test and infection screen if appropriate

  • Management advice e.g. pain relief, lifestyle advice

  • Prescription arrangement

  • Written medical report which can be posted or emailed to yourself and health professional(s) of your choice

  • Notification of results of any test
