Bleeding: Polyps both endocervical and prolapsed endometrial polyps, cervicitis (inflammation from infection), cervical cancer are some of the causes. In your case I wouldn't expect to see an 8mm endometrium at age 60, so I'm concerned about possible hyperplasia. Trauma from sex can cause cervical and vaginal bleeding as well from atrophy.
