    I can't really answer that but how small was this bleed and was it just one time? Menopause causes dryness and all kinds of changes. Small bleeds can be from sex. I had that happen. Or just changes in hormone levels. That seems more likely to me. But, I'm not a doctor and you are doing the right thing by being checked out. Don't let it scare you that they are doing tests. it's common procedure.

      Post menopausal blleeding is very common - it happened to me in April after not having a period for 12 months. I think it standard pratice to fast track women with this as it can be a sign of something serious. In my case, I had a vaginal scan which showd a womb lining of 6 mm where they like it to be 4. So I had a biopsy the same day and the results took 10 days. It showed that I had "Simple Hyperplasia" which is being treated with a 3 month course of Progesterone. I'll then have a further biopsy to see if it's cleared.
