If you're in menopause, can you still get your period?

My doctor told me I'm in menopause, but I still bleed sometimes.

If you're post-menopausal you no longer get your period. But if you are peri-menopausal, meaning your body has started the process of going into menopause, it is common to still bleed normally or have irregular periods.

If you're told you're in menopause but you're still getting your period you're probably in the beginning stages. It will stop eventually.

Menopause is the process of your menstrual cycle stopping so it is possible you may still bleed, though as time goes by it should get much lighter and spotting is not uncommon. If you're really worried talk to your doctor.

While a woman may be menopausal she may still continue to have period like bleeding occasionally. This will continue until the hormones in your body equal out. Until that point bleeding should only be a concern when it occurs frequently (more than once every 3 weeks) or is very heavy.

Its not technically considered a period but yes you can still bleed until your body gets used to the change completly. Once you hit menopause your body just wont stop.
