Hello doctor,

My mother was not having her periods from the past five years, but from yesterday, she started bleeding again. In these five years, she has not even bled for a single day. Why is she bleeding all of a sudden? What can be the cause?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Five years no menstruation and now bleeding needs some detailed examination and investigations. Consult a nearby gynecologist, and let him or her see the source of the bleeding. Get an ultrasonography done.

If bleeding is from the uterus, then your mom might need to get a D and C (dilatation and curettage). It is a minor operation, and the tissues are sent for testing. Basically, we have to rule out whether there any cancer cells or not.

She may even require a CT scan. If nothing is found and every report comes normal, then she will be given some medicines accordingly. And no need to worry.

If something is found in the reports, then it may require major operations, but it will all depend on the reports. So first, consult a nearby gynecologist.
