In brief: Postmenopausal

Postmenopausal bleeding should always be assessed by a doctor. A doctor will perform a pap smear and pelvic examination and may do a blood test to check hormone levels.
The vaginal bleeding could be attributed to (but not limited to) a hormonal change, the presence of cervical polyps, vaginitis or endometrial cancer.
