Brief Answer:

Can be due to menopausal hormonal changes.

Detailed Answer:

Hello and thanks for posting your query.

The spotting after 9 months of amenorrhea can be related to menopausal hormonal changes.

This can happen during menopause. The spotting usually stops on its own in 1-2 weeks or is followed by a bleeding.

In case the bleeding is heavy or is persistent then do consult your gynecologist for an examination and a few investigations to rule out other cervix or uterus related pathologies.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.
