Welcome to XXXXXXX

There are so many causes of vaginal bleeding/discharge at your age.

As you have'nt had a menstrual period for 8 years, but having a show for a week, it does not seem to be due to menstrual period.

Thus it requires examination, investigations like Pap smear and trancevaginal ultrasound & evaluation and treatment accordingly by a Gynecologist.

Hope, I have answered your query. If you have further query in this regard, please free to ask.

With good wishes,
