No, this is not normal. After menopause, bleeding per vagina, is always a cause for concern and should be investigated.
Are you on any medication? And do you have any previously diagnosed medical conditions?

I have had colon cancer two years ago and various stoma reversals. I am now fine apart from this happening.
Alright, are you on any medication?
Alright, when was your last follow up with the Oncologist or your Primary Surgeon?
I have just had a terrible winter vomiting bug and am recovering. My son had it too.
About 6 weeks ago. No oncologist as they said it was all removed and a low chance of it returning. They were delighted with their work. No chemo etc.
Okay, 06 weeks back did you have any scan to see if the tumor was removed completely? Or any blood tests?
yes a CT scan and loads of blood tests. The specialist sees me 3 monthly and says he is delighted and I am doing well.
That's great news!
I have had other CT scans when they did the reversals and he insisted all was clear. There was no spread to lymph nodes etc.
Well, in the light of that, this can be explained by endometriosis, polyps in the cervix or the uterus, sometimes bleeding can be due to atrophic vaginitis as well.
But more serious causes can also cause the bleeding and that is why it is always recommended to have a full screening and evaluation done so that nothing is missed out.
Your GP will / should refer you to a Ob/Gyn after hearing your complaints and there you will have complete gynaecological examination, a PAP smear, transvaginal ultrasound and a hysterocystoscopy.
