Detailed Answer:
Hello sir, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your health issue.

Post menopausal bleeding needs early evaluation so she should get a transvaginal ultrasound at the earliest.
It is to see the thickness of endometrium and any other pathology if present.
In case the bleeding is excessive then she should take tablet tranexemic acid thrice a day till it stops.
Get ultrasound done and just let me know so that we can discuss further management.
In case you have any questions about it, I will be glad to answer.
