Treatment of Post-Menopausal Bleeding
If you’ve gone without a period for more than a year, you are post-menopausal and shouldn’t be experiencing any menstrual bleeding. If you are – even if it’s just a little spotting – you need to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rania Ibrahim as soon as possible. This bleeding could be the result of a serious health problem.
The treatment process will depend on what’s causing the bleeding.
Polyps: Surgery may be required to remove them.
Endometrial atrophy: Can usually be successfully treated with medication alone.
Endometrial hyperplasia: Can be treated with medication or surgery to remove thickened patches of the endometrium.
Endometrial cancer: Is typically treated with a total hysterectomy, in which the uterus and cervix are removed. In some instances, part of the vagina, the ovaries, fallopian tubes and nearby lymph nodes may also be removed.
Although bleeding on and off during perimenopause (the transition years) is considered to be normal, bleeding post menopause is not. Chances are good that something minor is causing the bleeding, but there is also a chance that something major such as cancer could be to blame, so the sooner you get treated, the more likely you are to enjoy a full recovery.
