See doc.: Need to see a doc. The source of vaginal bleeding is the uterus which was acting under control of the ovaries. Apparently these are both gone so there should be no bleeding at all. Someone needs to take a close look to identify the source.

Have a gyn md examine this area and sometimes this can be identified and treated with a siver nitrate stick applied to the area to help it heal.
