about a week ago my breasts became tender and today I started bleeding all be it quite lightly but it's been all day! I've read up about it and most people say it's quite common up to 2 years! Is it more worrying the longer you have stopped

    HI Maggs,

    I am in menopause at the moment, early hot flushes etc. So i do not know alot about bleeding after three years. All i can say try not to worry. Get checked by your doctor for peace of mind. Please do not worry though. Take one day at time and stay calm. Menopause is a mystery at times. Take careĀ

    Maggs, I have never heard it is normal to bleed the first couple of years into menopause. I believe what they say is you are in full menopause if you have not had a period for a year. If you have gone three years without a period and are now spotting/bleeding, go see your gynecologist. It is probably nothing but you must have it checked out.
