I am a 58 year old woman that had her last period in November 2006. Well I woke up this morning with one!!! Is this normal?

Postmenopausal bleeding is not normal. I think that it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your obgyn to find the cause of your bleeding. This article on postmenopausal bleeding has information you may be interested in.

Best wishes,
