Menopause and periods
I am a woman of 53 and my last period was March of 2006 and now 1 and 1/2 years later I am bleeding again. Is this normal for menapause. I recently underwent a stressful job change and worries about a grandaughter.
It is not considered normal to bleed 1.5 years after your last period. Please see your gynecologist or primary physician for an evaluation.
