There are many reasons for unscheduled bleeding in perimenopause and menopause, and getting an answer to what’s causing the issue for you is really important. Some things are very easily identified and treated, others require more investigation and management. Speaking to your doctor will help identify the cause, and ensure the right treatment plan.
Postmenopausal bleeding isn’t usually serious, but can be a sign of cancer. Hence seeking help early on is really important, as cancer is easier to treat if it’s found early. It’s worth noting that 9 out of 10 women with postmenopausal bleeding don’t have cancer.
