Here's the story:
83-year-old female with diabetes and hypertension presented to the emergency department (ED) complaining of vaginal bleeding that started the night prior to presentation. She stated that she started to “hemorrhage” while lying in bed and has had continuous bleeding since onset. She used multiple pads during the day and quantifies her bleeding as similar to a menstrual period. This was the first time she has had vaginal bleeding since menopause at age 45. She denied other genitourinary symptoms such as dysuria, hematuria, vaginal discharge, or abdominal pain.
