In brief: Pap smear bleeding

After menopause, the decreased estrogen makes the mucosa of the cervical area and the lining of the cervix much more delicate and apt to bleed on contact.
Pap smears are sometimes the cause of this kind of bleeding. It should stop within a day or so. If it continues, see your provider.
