Bleeding

Vaginal bleeding is a common source of distress for menopausal women. Irregular bleeding is quite common during menopause, and may be caused by lowered oestrogen levels. During perimenopause it is common to experience irregular periods that vary in regularity, flow, consistency and colour, whilst during postmenopause bleeding may be due to dryness and thinning of the vaginal walls. 

Whilst in some cases these symptoms may settle down on their own, irregular bleeding may also be a sign of something more serious that you should be sure to get checked by your GP. Careful attention to nutrition and lifestyle can also provide some relief from your symptoms.
