    I am now, but I am on HRT and using estrace vaginal cream. I believe the cream is the cause of my spotting and bleeding. I go tomorrow to see p. provider. I have not had a period for seven years till now.

    I'm sorry you're going through this.  You need to see your doctor, whether you are scared or not! Most things can be sorted if caught in time. I'm not going to speculate on what it could be--you need to find out what's going on--fast.  

    Please take heart, my Dear!  You're in my thoughts and prayers. xx

    Debbie,

    Lynda is right honey. Please go to the doctor very soon. I know it is scary. Believe me, I am right there with you. I have 3 brothers that have had cancer. I know my chances are not good. But, they will be better if it is caught early. I am starting my doctor journey tomorrow. Please start yours.

    It sounds like you may need a D & C, to scrap the walls. Nothing major, and completely normal. I've had this done as well when I bled for over 14 days. My doctor said if you bleed for more than 10 days then come in, which I did, she performed a D & C, and that stopped the bleeding. Erratic bleeding is expected while your hormones are tapering off, of course, if you're bleeding for more than 10 days I'd be concerned, for which I've had light bleeds for 5 days, and didn't worry they went away, but since you're so worried just get checked.
