Post menopausal bleeding and warfarin
An_255709 posted:
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

Am scheduled also for ultrasound which I had before the first biopsy too. Thanks for your input!
