10-12 after menopause I am bleeding, not a lot but any scares me. Why am i bleeding now ? Very stressful day and took a walk fof over an hour after 2-3 years. Also did a lot of yard work for the first time this year.

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

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

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

No: I would not say that you should specifically worry about this, but know that with menopause, your ovaries are producing little to no estrogen. This predisposes you to vaginal infections such as yeast infections. The next time this occurs, treat with an over the counter yeast cream and see if this helps. ...Read more

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.

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

Why i'm i having a yellowish discharge after my menustral cycle this month. My cylcle was also shorter this month. I'm 44, maybe pre menopausal.

Why i'm i having a yellowish discharge after my menustral cycle this month. My cylcle was also shorter this month. I'm 44, maybe pre menopausal.

BV: The most common reason for a yellowish discharge is an imbalance in the acidity of the vagina which allows specific bacteria in the vagina to grow. That is called bacterial vaginosis. It is not an std. Sometimes it clears up on its own. If it does not, i would see your gyne. ...Read more
