Post-Menopausal Bleeding Pathway

Before your appointment

To get ready for your appointment with your healthcare provider:

  • Write down how you feel, your symptoms, and any concerns you have. Use a symptom tracker (PDF) or menstrual diary to help you remember information about your symptoms. Common symptoms of post-menopausal bleeding include new bleeding, spotting brown or pink discharge, bleeding after or during certain activities, bleeding after sex, and pain.
  • Review your list of symptoms and questions and mark the things that are most important for you to share with your ​healthcare provider.
  • Make a list of any medicines you use, including any vitamins, lotions, herbs, and supplements.
  • Ask someone you trust to go with you to your appointment. They can help you ask questions, write down instructions, and remember explanations.
  • Bring a pen and paper and plan to write notes during the visit or record the conversation using your phone or an app like the Alberta Health Services My Care Conversations app.
