48 and no period for 15 months. Lately slight pink discharge after sex

Posted , 8 users are following.

Can anyone advise

I have assumed I am post menopausal as over a year since last period. Occasional hot flushes and night sweats but not much else other than vaginal dryness that means using Replens to moisturise. Doesn't seem to help much lately though and I have noticed a pink /bleed after sex that stops when I don't have sex. No pain just soreness afterwards.

Very worried but on holiday so can't see doctor until next week. Need some reassurance as I am freaking out after googling this😰

    Yes can be very worrying,its a long time since I was in that situation and I went on to 61 with periods until GP took me off HRT but also had pink discharge for a while. As for dryness try WOOHOO or DUREX PLAY, great. Visit a good Pharmacist if you are on holiday as dont let it spoil your holiday!!

    I found balance activ moisture gel for menopause very good. Ive tried a few and found the pessaries the best. They are quite expensive but worth it.

    Im still having periods sporadically but im guessing you could be dry and sore up inside. Ive had the pink discharge after sex also.

    Hope this helps. Please enjoy your holiday x

    You may not be over it. I heard of friends of mine same thing. Thought they were in full menopause or post after s year without a period. Then bsng they got it. Everyone is different though so I would call your ObGyn to be certain or get your hormonal levels checked. 48 seems too young to be in post menopause. Heard this goes on for at least 5-10 years. Good Luck. Hope it doesn't come back. I just had some light spotting in mid Dec. But nothing more so hoping I'm on my way to regular menopause now.

    First, stop Googling! It is not giving you good advice and is feeding your fears. Next, your problem is going to be due to the vaginal atrophy most likely. You're probably reading things like "bleeding after menopause is not normal and you should call your doctor immediately!" Scary sounding, right? I did the same thing. Not that you shouldn't go ahead and call. But enjoy your time and know it's most likely nothing sinister.
