Post-Menopausal Bleeding Pathway

Review your treatment and management options

You will need your own specific treatment and management plan. Your treatment choices may depend on your age, the cause of your bleeding, and if you plan to get pregnant in the future.

You will talk with your healthcare team about your options. Asking questions about your treatment options will help you make an informed decision about what is right for you.


Your healthcare provider may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medicine to help reduce your bleeding and manage your pain.

Hormone therapy

There are many different options for hormone therapy. Talk with your healthcare team to decide what is best for you.


A hysteroscopy is a procedure that allows a surgeon to look inside your uterus to help diagnose and treat post-menopausal bleeding. It can also help with treatment by removing polyps or fibroids.


Surgery is only done when other treatments don't work. It may include a hysterectomy, which is surgery to remove your uterus.
