I ceased having regular periods about 18 months ago. Is it normal to have a 1 day light period about every 6 months when going through menopause? I am 52 and have hot flashes, since about 2 years--however, they are not disruptive.
Chances are you do not have a serious problem or it would have gotten worse by now. However, any bleeding occurring this long after your regular menses should be evaluated by your physician.
