Postmenopausal bleeding

Post-menopausal bleeding is vaginal bleeding that happens at least 12 months after your periods have stopped.

It is not normal to bleed at this time, even if it is just spotting, so don't ignore it. If you experience bleeding a year or more after your menopause, make an appointment to see your GP as soon as possible.

The cause is usually something minor, such as inflammation of the womb lining but cancer is always a possibility that must be ruled out.
