Post-Menopausal Bleeding

What it is

Post-menopausal bleeding is a term used to describe bleeding that occurs after you’ve gone through menopause.

Menopause, which typically occurs between ages 45 and 55, marks the end of your menstrual cycles. After a full year without a period, any vaginal bleeding is considered post-menopausal bleeding. This can be surprising and understandably concerning.

We want you to know that while it’s not normal, it’s often not a cause for alarm. There are several possible causes, from minor conditions like inflammation of the vaginal lining or polyps (benign growths) in the uterus or cervix, to more serious conditions like endometrial cancer.

How treatment works

We understand that health surprises like post-menopausal bleeding can be a bit unsettling.

But remember, you’re not alone on this journey. Our team is here to guide you every step of the way, just like a trusted friend or family member would. When it comes to treating post-menopausal bleeding, the approach depends on what’s causing it.

Firstly, let’s talk about medication. Sometimes, if your symptoms are due to hormonal imbalances or infections, our healthcare professionals might prescribe hormonal medications or antibiotics. We’ll explain everything clearly and patiently, so you don’t have to worry about navigating complex medical jargon.

Secondly, if uterine polyps – which are non-cancerous growths – are behind the bleeding, a simple procedure to remove them often resolves the issue. We’ll ensure you feel comfortable and informed about the process.

Thirdly, in some cases, when other treatments haven’t quite hit the mark, procedures like Endometrial Ablation or Resection might be considered. These involve removing or destroying the lining of the uterus. It might sound a bit intimidating, but remember, we’re here to walk you through all the details.

Finally, a Hysterectomy, which is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus, is typically considered a last resort. It’s generally reserved for situations when other treatments haven’t worked or when there’s a high risk of endometrial cancer.
