bleeding during menopause
goofamondo posted:
I have not had a menstraul cycle in over two years so I thought I was in menopause. I recently started spotting (uterine bleeding) and was wondering if other women have this issue while in menopause? What are the possible causes of the bleeding and what do I need to do?
jaxgirl1952 responded:
All bleeding should be checked by your doctor. I had the same problem and after several tests they found that I still produce too much estrogen. I get some cramping as well as migraines and that feeling my period will start and I get spotting. All other tests were nromal so they gave me progesterone cream (bioidentical) but I may have to use pills.

Hope this helps. It is good to get it checked.
