Brief Answer: Could be a cervical erosion or polyp. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Thank you for choosing XXXXXXX Considering your age and previous history, I feel your present Inter-menstrual bleeding could be due to Cervical problem, usually a cervical polyp or uterine polyp or cervical erosion can cause similar symptoms. What I advise you is to visit your OBGY specialist, they will do a per-speculum examination and a PAP smear to rule out any cervical problem. If there is no local cause, you might be even advised you to get a scan pelvis to rule out any uterine problem. Treatment depends on the cause, if there is any small polyp it can be removed as an OPD procedure. Please ask if you have more questions. If you are satisfied, please make sure that your ACCEPT my answer so that I receive credit. Good luck!!
