HELP Yet another D&C for post intercourse bleeding

I am in perimenopause, I haven not had my period for almost 9 months now. I had a D& C with hysterocopy last for post intercourse bleeding. Nothing was found except benign edoceverical tissure with acute and chronic cervicitis and squamous metaplasia, which was told to be normal.
After many vaginal antibiotics and the dx of BV and also vaginal estrogen to thicken my cervic. I was told that should take care of the bleeding. I was on Clindensse for three weeks. Now the bleeding has returned. My new GYN wants to do another D&C. Could the first D&C missed something?
I have been having cramping like I am going to get my period, but nothing. And started to have major bloating of the abdomen. I know when you are reaching menopause your body starts to get thicking around the mid section.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so what was the outcome? I have had normal pap except last year which should inflammation or polyps. No polyps, but when they did the D&C I did have my period, but the doctor wanted to go ahead with the D&C. Could something have been missed because of my period?

I do have a history of fibroid, but I was told they would not be an issue after menopause.

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Re: HELP Yet another D&C for post intercourse bleeding

i'm sorry this is so late in replying, but did your doctor ever do a colposcopy or an ECC. Any bleeding post-coital, especially in a woman over 30 (who is not a virgin (and that is the first coitus)) needs to see a doctor. The bleeding could be coming from the cervix, not the uterus.

I personally think that every woman over 30 who has a colposcopy, has post-coital bleeding/ bleeding between periods/ bleeding after menopause/ is positive for high risk HPV needs to also have an ECC. The ECC (endocervical curettage) is the only non-surgical way the doctor can sample the endocervical canal. Paps do not reach up into the cervical canal and the cells up there are different from the ones on the exocervix (where the pap is done).
