I had some bleeding a few weeks ago and then again on Saturday. When it happened the first time, I thought maybe I was getting a UTI but then it stopped so I forgot about it. On Saturday it was after sex. There was quite a bit of blood and it went on for about 6-8 hrs. Bright red, same as the first time. There was probably less than I think. You know how when you bleed, even a little bit looks like a lot.
I went to the GP yesterday to get things checked out. She did a pelvic exam and said that everything looked fine. She wants me to get an edometrial biopsy and ultrasound.
So, I'm wondering, could Femara have anything to do with the bleeding? I haven't had a period in over three years. They ran a blood test before starting me on Femara to make sure that I was post-menopausal. The results weren't as low as they expected but low enough to start me on Femara. Even so, the bleeding wasn't like period blood. It was bright red.
Anyone have experience with something like this? I was node negative so I'm hoping this has nothing to do with the breast cancer spreading. I hope, I hope, I hope. Words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated.
