Bleeding from the vagina
Regular bleeding from the vagina, occurring every 28 days, is perfectly normal. But bleeding between menstrual periods is decidedly abnormal and may indicate some condition that should be corrected. Heavy bleeding between menstrual periods, or during pregnancy, is always serious.
Bleeding occurring after the menopause may indicate the presence of cancer. All women in middle life should have a complete pelvic examination at least every six months, whether they are bleeding or not.
Remember, cancer does not cause pain during the early stages. Bleeding may be the first sign of trouble. Therefore, see you doctor whenever any abnormal bleeding occurs.
