I have had post menopausal bleeding (blood stained discharge for 2 1/2 years now. I'm 66 years old.
I had a hysteroscopy a year ago which found nothing - the gyno was pretty casual - his words "what can I say - women bleed" when I asked where would the bleeding be coming from.
Because of recent lower abdominal pain and backache I have just been for an ultrasound which found a "hot spot" (explained as a red spot low down in the uterus). No-one has explained what it may be. The endometrius is estimated at between 4-5 mm thick. A biopsy was normal, but the bleeding continues and unlike a period, it is there every day, though some days are worse than others. Think I'll have to wear a pad for the rest of my life.
Not sure whether to just leave it or not. No-one seems too concerned.
