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).

Should i be worried about post menopausal occassional yellow heavy discharge?

What can cause a brighter yellow discharge but very thin in a 50 yr. Old woman? And might be going thru menopause. Itches a little sometimes.

It depends: Are you sexually active? Do you use protection? You need to have regular check ups with your gynocologist. If you have excessive itching it could be a yeast infection. If you have concerns about discharge you need to see your doctor to have this checked. It could also be normal. We all have some discharge sometimes, but make sure you are up to date on your check ups. And use protection. ...Read more

Is it normal to have light brown discharge after menopause ? It's been 4 years since my last period

Is it normal to have light brown discharge after menopause ? It's been 4 years since my last period

No.: Any bleeding after menopause needs to be evaluated. Postmenopausal bleeding can be an early sign of uterine cancer. It is not likely that it is cancer but the only way to be sure is to see your doctor. Typically you will have a pelvic ultrasound and maybe a biopsy of the inside of the uterus. I would not ignore any bleeding after menopause. Hope this helps. ...Read more
