Need to see doctor: We recommend that if women have any bleeding after they have not had a period in one year that they be checked. This usually involves a vaginal ultrasound and an endometrial biopsy. Both of these are office procedures. You need to see your doctor about this. Everything may be fine but you need to be checked
