Hysterectomy 24 yrs ago. Uterus & cervix removed. Vaginal bleeding. Family Dr. says it's a polyp..have a referral to see Gyn. What happens now? I'm 66

After a hysterectomy or menopause the most common reason for bleeding is the thinning of the vaginal tissue due to low estrogen levels. This is called atrophic vaginitis.

My 16 yo son received an invitation to national academy of future physicians conference in dc. Anyone know if this is legit?

I am not sure: Googling the national academy of future physicians, yielded a lot of self promotion articles. I would suggest looking at health careers programs that are connected to established universities and colleges. The best places to check would be the "sponsoring agencies" listed on their website. Perhaps another healthtap physician will have a more complete answer. ...Read more
