Bleeding during menopause
lem1606 posted:
I am 53 years old I have not had a period for over a year and 2 weeks ago I started bleeding heavily, bad cramping, bad headaches, and nausea after eating. Is this normal?
Mary Jane Minkin, MD responded:
Dear lem1606,
Your bleeding may well turn out to be just some spontaneous ovarian activity, but as it has been over a year since your last period, you need to check in with your health care provider. (s)he may start with an ultrasound to look at the lining of your uterus-but do check in with your provider.
good luck,
Mary Jane
