Bleeding Between Menstrual Periods
When women begin to have menopause, periods can change so that they are either heavier or lighter, and bleeding between periods can occur. The periods become less regularly timed. Your bleeding between periods may simply be a sign of menopause.
However, there are some important other conditions that could be the cause of your bleeding. Among them is a new pregnancy. If you are sexually active and you don't use a reliable form of birth control, pregnancy is a realistic concern.
Is there any chance that you could be pregnant?
