Pink discharge after menopause
avatar
An_248549 posted:
I am 51 years old and have not had a period for over a year now. In the past few days I have noticed a slight pink discharge, not heavy, just enough that I can see it when I wipe. It isn't urine. The discharge has no odor, no menstral odor. I just wondered if this is normal? I really don't have any other symptoms related to this, no cramping, etc...Should I be concerned?

Dear An_248549,
As I usually answer in these situations, don't worry-but do contact your care provider. If you go for more than a year without bleeding, and then start to bleed, you should check in with your care provider.
Good luck,
Mary Jane
