Hi.. Welcome to healthcaremagic community forum..
Irregular menstrual periods, spotting and bleeding are known to occur in menopausal age group and also following chemotherapy..
However, since chemotherapy drugs can affect platelets, there by inducing bleeding, you will need to check your platelet counts for possible thrombopenia inducing bleeding.
