Abnormal bleeding after menopause

Menopause is the loss of menstruation in women for 1 year with an average age of about 51 years. In particular, post-menchausal bleeding is one of the abnormal signs for the health of the woman. Vaginal bleeding in the postmenolytic period may signal benign endometrial transit, more dangerous than endometrial cancer.

1. What is post-menopause blood?

Menopause is the period in which the woman permanently stops menstruation with the defining sign that the loss of menstruation exists within 12 months of the last menstrual cycle. The average menopause is 51 years old and the limit is between 45 and 55 years old.

During this menopause and post-menopause, the woman's body experiences changes in both endal and endal function deterioration. Specifically, for the deterioration of endocculating function, the woman will have ovary cyst atrophy that leads to a decrease in ovarian cyst reserves. As for end hormone function, estrogen deficiency during this period will lead to symptoms of menopause.

The consequences of menopause are complex, including vascular disorders, temperament disorders, urogenital atrophy, skin atrophy,osteoporosis, cardiovascular problems, body transformation disorders …

In the above disorders, post-menchausal bleeding is a dangerous sign that any woman should pay attention and not be ignored. The sign of this condition is abnormal vaginal bleeding during postmenmenausal periods that a woman may think of in cases such as menstruation returning after menopause, menopause but relapse or some patients having menstruation again after 2 years of menopause. But all of the above cases are defined as post-men's blood bleeding, and this is a post-menopause disease in which the woman should be properly diagnosed and treated.

Uterus polyps are benign but also very dangerous

These are tumors located in the uterus,cervical, uterine tubes but not gynecologic cancers. Uterus polyps are benign but also very dangerous, requiring surgical removal so as not to cause menopause to bleed in a woman.

2.2. Endometrial atrophy or endometrial thinning

The cause of this phenomenon is a decrease in estrogen content, so the lining tissue on the inside of the uterus becomes thinner and leads to vaginal bleeding. This condition is usually treated using drugs and hormone tablets.

2.3. Endometrial wall thickening

Symptoms of menopause such as hotness, hair loss, vaginal dryness after treatment can lead to thickening of the endometrial layer orendometrial growth , which produces post-menopause blood and it can be treated with hormone-regulating drugs.

2.4. Gynecologic oncology

Gynecologic cancer here is endometrial cancer along with the malignant development of cells in the lining of the uterus, which is also the cause of vaginal bleeding in the post-menopause period.

3. Diagnosis of post-menopause bleeding

Post-menopause bleeding is diagnosed based on symptoms of bleeding, self-history, family and some subclinical techniques such as:

  • Endometrial biosing with a thin tube to take a small amount of tissue in the lining of the uterus for examination;
  • Ultrasound through vaginal reclining to see the organs in the pelvis;
  • Ultrasound pumps the ovarian water through the catheter tube to see the image of the uterus;
  • Endoscopy of the uterus with an endoscope inserted into the vagina and cervical can see the image inside the uterus;
  • Nong and scrape the uterus to get tissue from the lining of the cervical and take it for examination.

4. Treatment of post-menopause bleeding

In order to treat post-menopause bleeding, it is necessary to diagnose the cause of vaginal bleeding. As said above, if the cause is polyps that cause post-menopause blood, it is possible to perform surgery to remove these blocks. If it is caused by endometrial atrophy, it will be treated with the drug method. Endometrial pros prosymosis will be prescribed by doctors to apply progestin therapy to peel off the endoratometrial and remove these flaking patches by endoscopy or nong and uterine chamber scraping.

It is important that for women who have been diagnosed with endometrial growth there is a very high risk of turning to endometrial cancer – a malignant form in gynecologic cancer. This should be cancer screening by a periodical endometrial biosy, to detect or be sure that endometrial growth has stabilized and not relapsed.

If the women have been identified with endometrial cancer, the most common treatment today is a surgery to remove the uterus and scrape neighboring lymph nodes.

Post-men's bleeding is a fairly dangerous phenomenon encountered in many women during menopause. Therefore, when there are any signs of abnormal vaginal bleeding, it is necessary to go to the medical facility for early diagnosis as well as timely treatment and intervention, in order to avoid excessive blood loss and affect the functioning of the genitals.
