Postmenopausal bleeding occurs due to a variety of reasons. Some of them are: • Endometrial Hyperplasia: This is when the uterine lining gets thicker rather than thinner, giving rise to irregular or heavy bleeding. This condition often leads to the growth of endometrial cancer. • Polyps: Polyps are growths that occur on the uterine lining. • Endometrial Atrophy: Once the hormone oestrogen stops production in a woman’s body due to menopause, it starts getting thinner. Finally, the lining of the endometrium is prone to bleeding.
