Uterine bleeding: Women after 40 can develop menstrual irregularities and that is called perimenopause. However pregnancy is always a concern if tubes are not tied. Abnormal bleeding must always be verify to rule out more serious conditions like endometrial pre cancer, cervical malignancies or uterine pathologies. Dont just rely that you are getting closer to menopause.
