    I am 64 yrs old & have painful intermittent vaginal bleeding. I have seen my G.P. & Drs at hospital, had scans, biopsy & D&C, all to no avail. Could this be down to my Type 2 Diabetes? I am on insulin glargine 30 units daily. 2 Metformin & 2 Gliclazide maximum dose twice daily. Any info will be gratefully received.

    the only help I can offer is that it's not likely to be diabetes

    Yeah see your GP

    I dont mean to alarm you but things that spring to mind are endometriosis (you don't have to be ovulating to bleed), cervical cancer, cervical polyps, uterine fibroids etc

    Please get that checked out ASAP

    Good luck
