    Dearest Maud, most of us on here have anxiety health issues. Because such a wide and diverse range of symptoms happen with this process when something new or different to us pops up we automatically panic about it. Are you sure you dont have any haemaroids that can bleed abit? They can confuse the issue and cause unnecessary worry. If you have an understanding dr they will send you for any tests they deem necessary and please remember, most serious problems with the reproductive organs can be easily dealt with when detected early. If this is the first time you have had this and you still have regular smear tests it is likely to be nothing serious. Have your tests done and try not to stress about it. I am about to begin the rounds myself, smear, mammogramm, ultra sound of ovaries and uterus ect; and as I have all these once a year, I know if anything is found they will sort it and quickly. So try not to worry it is unlikely to be anything serious and any tests you are sent for are precautionary. We are lucky to have drs that do this alot dont and just dismiss us and our meno symptoms with an its all in your mind attitude. Well whether in your mind or not, you are entitled to have any health concerns taken seriously and follow up done if necessary. Hope everything goes ok for you. Let me know how you get on XXX

      Please try not to worry Maud. After seeing what the other ladies have written to you I am sure they are right that your body is still producing a trace of oestrogen and that it is taking that long for enough to build up in your system and all it manages is a bit of spotting. You will be fine I'm sure. XXX

      Hi Maud....I agree with Tina, she has wise advice. I'm sure it is probably some type of post meno hormonal surge that is giving you the exact symptoms you used to have....they are the same, eh?

      I don't think it's anything sinister...but I so understand your anxiety! My current freak out is dry eyes that I pray is the reason I've burst a vessel. It's cleared up n doc said they're harmless but to go get full eye work up to be at ease.

      So go get checked and be at ease. Hugs!!

    Hi Maud I have experienced this. I am on HRT are you? My scan showed I had a polyp so I was given a hysteroscopy & had the Polyp removed, all was fine with me. I shouldn't worry it's always best to get this checked out. I am postmenopausal.

    Maud, even after menopause we still produce some estrogen.  And the fact that you've had very minimal symptoms of menopause suggests that your body is still producing some estrogen and doing this slowly.  It sounds like you might have had a surge, but that doesn't mean anything is wrong.  I've known women who have had a full 5 day random period after menopause.  Good idea to get things checked out and set your fears aside.
