Thanks for the query.

Post coital bleeding after menopause is something to be concerned about. Most common cause of postmenopausal bleeding is Atropic vagina followed by cervical malignancy.

But when detected early, it has very good prognosis.

Could you please let me know
1. The site of the sore?
2. Amount of bleeding?
3.Spotting or heavy?
4. Have you done your pap smear before? If so attach reports.

I can give you better suggestions about diagnosis and treatment after your reply.
