    Should a small amount of bleeding in menopausal years be ignored?

    I am a 58-year-old woman and I went through menopause a few years ago. I have noticed lately that I have had a small amount of bleeding here and there, is this normal?

    Any vaginal bleeding after menopause, irrespective of quantity, colour, or the frequency, is abnormal and must be investigated by a doctor. Use of HRT increases the incidence of postmenopausal bleeding fivefold. Women with PMB have a 10-15% chance of endometrial cancer. The likelihood of endometrial cancer increases with age.
