Well, I am new to this place and thought I may find comfort here. About a month ago noticed some slight spotting after 2 years post menopause. Was not sure where it was actually coming from so made an appt with primary dr. I had a urinalysis and a pelvic exam with a culture also done, initially. The culture came back that I did have vaginosis so was put on metronidozole. Still had spotting afterwards so I was sent for a transvaginal ultrasound and a thickened lining was diagnosed. I also never got the results until I had to call and email for someone to locate them for they had either been misplaced or lost. Well at that point was sent to my gyno and had an endo biopsy this past Tuesday. the waiting is horrific and google doesn't help any.... Any experiences and feelings would be helpful... I have an appt on Tuesday to find out the results and also have a pap done for it could not be done on the day of the biopsy for insurance purposes.
Hi Leah17,
Sorry to hear what your going through...hope my story will help. I'm 56 yo and was experiencing postmenopausal bleeding, very light, off & on for 2 + years. My gyn told me that any bleeding after menopause is abnormal & needs to be evaluated. So, here's what I ended up going through. I had a transvaginal ultrasound that showed a slightly thickened endometrial wall so I had an endometrial biopsy with results showing simple hyperplasia (hyperplasia is an overgrowth of tissue and simple hyperplasia is the better of the 4 types that you can have). After the endometrial biopsy, my gyn put me on a 3 week course of progesterone with the intent of bringing on my period so the endometrial lining would shed. Had a follow up transvaginal ultra sound 3 months later with no change in the endometrial lining but there was a suspicious mass/polyp? so my gyn decided to do a hysteroscopy & D & C. This procedure is done under general anesthesia & they insert a scope and is able to see the inside of the uterus on a screen. During this time, she scraped the lining. She saw a huge polyp and removed as much of it as she could because she said it was really imbedded in the uterus. She had told me that uterine polyps are usually benign but can cause irregular bleeding. All pathology was benign, thank goodness. It's been 3 1/2 months since the procedure and so far no further bleeding. So, I wouldn't get too worked up over this yet...many women experience this type of problem and most end up being fine. Hope this helps and let me know how things turn out.
Thanks so much for your response, it's been a grueling few weeks. I finally got the results back on the biopsy which were normal. My doctor had said that we will just keep an eye on this and if any more bleeding he would do a D & C, then asked me how I felt about this decision. I said this sounds fine. I am hoping that I am making the right decision for he also stated that only a small portion is looked at when doing an endo biopsy so not everything would have been checked of course but then finished with but he felt this was the right way to handle it.
i too had bleeding after 2 years and 9 months, went had a biopsy and a pap and blood work, dr called told me the pap and biopsy was normal and i was thru menopause not sure what caused me to bleed
