Brief Answer:
PAP smear bleeding profile colposcopy needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The bleeding from the vagina could be due to a cervical lesion or a bleeding disorder. Since the endometrial thickness is 3mm any endometrial pathology is not likely.
A complex ovarian cyst is less likely to cause a hormonal disturbance causing such a bleeding. If serum CA-125 levels are normal then just monitoring with a follow up ultrasound scan after 3 months will be sufficient.
To rule out any cervical lesion and bleeding disorder PAP smear colposcopy and bleeding profile needs to be tested. Do stop all the pain killers in case she is taking any since that can aggravate such a bleeding tendency.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
