Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear An_255640,
Indeed, you could be experiencing a surge of ovarian activity; it does happen. However, you do need to check in with your health care provider. Any bleeding more than a year after your last menstrual period needs to be evaluated, to make sure there isn't something unusual going on in the lining of your uterus-an ultrasound or endometrial biopsy is likely to be a suggestion from your gynecologist.
good luck,
Mary Jane
