Hello Besty,

It is not unusual to have a period or slight period during menopause or postmenopause.  You hormones haven't disappeared they are still there.  Estrogen levels are lower and progesterone levels are higher.  However, sometimes estrogen production increases for any number of reasons.  Sometimes when you're around a lot of men and you're are not usually , this can increase hormone production.  Perhaps you find someone attract as of late.  That could increase hormone production.  I doubt you have any medical complications to worry about but it is good that you went to the doctor to make sure.  I'm sure your tests will come out fine.
