In brief: Usually no

During the time a woman is perimenopausal hormonal manipulation can cause some spotting or bleeding depending on how the hormones are dosed.
Once a woman is truly menopausal hrt does not usually cause menstruation. Vaginal bleeding in the post-menopausal woman is considered abnormal & worthy of investigation.

In brief: Depends

There are several ways to give hrt.
Some will result in a "period". Others will not. Your doctor should let you know what to expect.

Cyclic BHRT which induces a period is recommended.
