Need evaluation: Any unexplained vaginal bleeding after hysterectomy (I assume not post-op ) needs evaluation from MD. Even if there is no pain and light spotting you need to have precancerous conditions and cancer ruled out. A pelvic exam and pap smear can reveal abnormal cells. Labs can reveal hormone imbalance.If it is simple vaginal dryness your gyn can prescribe treatments like estrogen creams or lubricants

I believe you would also need to be evaluated for hematuria ... bleeding from the urethra/bladder.

Needs exam: You need to see a doctor to have this evaluated. The source of bleeding needs to be identified. It could be from the bladder, urethra, vaginal or rectum. This is the first step.
