Menopause can: Be hard to delineate, and alternating sparsity with heavy flow can characterize it. However, if you have had no period, and now are bleeding you need to be seen and examined. While there is no connectiona between vaginal blood, and GI tract bleeding, blood in bowls can be confused. Get checked out.

Uterine Cancer: Post menopausal bleeding without a cause (hormone replacement therapy is the most common) is uterine cancer until proven otherwise. Get to a gyn asap.
