See your doctor: Bleeding after menopause (defined as 1 year without a period or any bleeding) is always a reason to see your gyno. Your activity is unlikely to be a cause. There are some simple causes, such as a dry vagina and bleeding after sex, and some more worrisome causes that definitely need evaluation and treatment (pre-cancers and cancer). Don't worry, but do make an appointment today. ...Read more

My ultra sound revealed 3 small fibroids and no thickening of uterus. I am 55 and in early menopause and still spot. How often should I have ultsound?
1-2x/year, or as nee: Depending on where the fibroids are (if not involving the inside lining/endometrium) - they probably aren't causing the spotting, the thin lining is very reassuring that u don't have endometrial cancer.

Please be re-evaluated or at least seek a second opinion as I am concerned by that. ...Read more

Menopause every symptom imaginable. Hysterectomy. Have ovaries. No uterus so can't judge where i'm at with this journey. 55 yrs old. When does II end?
Overgrowth or polyp: Women often experience an overgrowth of the lining of their uterus, the endometrium, called hyperplasia. The hyperplasia may be only simple, requiring only hormonal treatment, or complex, with atypia, which is more worrisome since it can be precancerous, best treated with hysterectomy. If the uterine lining's thickness was noted on an ultrasound, it may also be due to a polyp, usually benign. ...Read more

46, on no meds, perimenapuasal, with uterus, beginning estrasorb & prometrium (micronized progesterone). Should I use them both daily for best relief of menopausal symptoms?
Follow the Rx!: The estrogen cream is usually used every day for relief of such symptoms as hot flashes. Progesterone pills (such as prometrium) do not relieve symptoms. They are often used for only part of the month (most often 12-14 days) just to protect the lining of the uterus from too much stimulation from the estrogen. Estrogen alone can cause excess thickening of the lining or even polyps or cancers. ...Read more

I am 46 near to menopause my ultrasound of pelvis says that uterus is a bit bulky and endometrial thickness is 0.9cm on 10th day what does that mean?
Depends...: If you are still having periods, a 9 mm endometrial thickness is in the normal range. However, if you are not yet menopausal, this is equivocal but your endometrium may thin out over time. The uterus being bulky is not really specific - i would ask your doctor what that means. Maybe your uterus is "more robust" looking than expected for your age but i'm not sure without seeing the whole report. ...Read more
Very sore in ext. vaginal area I avoid sex and in menopause. Waiting for results from pelvic ultrasound to see if uterus lining thin. Suggestions?
Vaginal Estrogen: When you are in menopause, your body stops making estrogen. Since the vaginal tissue is very sensitive to estrogen, it can become thin and lose its ability to stretch. When you have intercourse, you can actually get micro-tears in the vaginal wall that are painful. These symptoms usually respond to a vaginal estrogen cream or tablet. Don't have intercourse if its painful. Best wishes! ...Read more
