Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

yes, new postmenopausal bleeding needs to be checked out as soon as possible.

Dr. David :

you could have a uterine cancer or gyn infection causing the bleeding.

Dr. David :

you should not be bleeding.

Dr. David :

you should go to the A&E

Dr. David :

or see a gyn doctor right away.

Customer:

I have no pain and sex yesterday was not a problem

Dr. David :

the bleeding could be from trauma. if you have recent sex.

Dr. David :

you don't have to have pain

Dr. David :

you still need to see a gyn doctor.

Dr. David :

any sort of new postmenopausal bleeding needs to be checked out with a gyn exam and uterine ultrasound.

Dr. David :

you can have uterine cancer without pain.

Customer:

Could it be coming from a tear to the vaginal wall ?

Dr. David :

it could be if the sex was very rough

Dr. David :

or if you were very dry.

Dr. David :

after menopause, the vagina can become very dry and frail.

Dr. David :

you might need to use more lubrication and a vaginal estrogen cream to help

Dr. David :

if you have trauma to the vaginal canal, you need to get this checked to make sure it is healing properly.

Customer:

no it was not dry and there was no blood at the time

Dr. David :

well, the bleeding can still come a day later.

Dr. David :

you still should see a doctor.

Customer:

ok should that be this evening?

Dr. David :

today or tomorrow.

Customer:

Thank you

Dr. David :

you are welcome

Dr. David :

good luck
