Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience

There can be several reasons for bleeding after the menopause. The most common causes are: inflammation and thinning of the vaginal lining (atrophic vaginitis) or womb lining (endometrial atrophy).

Bleeding is common symptom of endometrial or uterine cancer after menopause. It can also signal vaginal or cervical cancer.Probably your doctors want to review the case after 3 months to make sure they don't miss a case of early cancer.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Vaginal cancer is a very rare type of cancer.

For all cases of vaginal cancer combined, the relative 5-year survival is about 50%
