Without a period in 2 years, sounds like you could and should be officially classified as in menopause (and you're textbook age for when menopause would hit too - at age 51!). Any bleeding after menopause should be attended to quickly by your physician. The risk of endometrial hyperplasia, which can progress to cancer some of the time, is higher under such circumstances as yours.

I would be sure to mention it to your GP sooner rather than later. I hope it's nothing, and chances are favorable that is the case, but better to be safe than sorry. Good luck with everything.

I have to agree with Maia and menopause looks like the culprit. I would call your ob-gyn. I usually get what looks like old blood toward the end of my cycle.


Good Luck!!
