Post menopausal bleeding and warfarin

Has anyone who is on warfarin or coumadin had episodes of post menopausal vaginal bleeding? I have had one biopsy (negative) continue to bleed on and off for 10 months. Scheduled for another biopsy. This is not fun!

Dear An_255709,
This is a good question. Certainly, some things like even dryness can lead to a bit of vaginal irritation, and in the presence of coumadin can lead to more bleeding. Have you had an ultrasound as well as your biopsy? If not, that is something to consider. Do followup with your gynecologist,
Good luck,
Mary Jane
