Spotting Following Cortisone Injection

I had a cortisone injection to my hip about 4 years ago. I was 9 years post menopause at the time and on hormone replacement therapy. I developed vaginal bleeding about 2 days later that lasted about 5 or 6 days. I had an endometrial biopsy which was negative for cancer. I have not had any post menopausal bleeding apart from that one time so can only conclude it was related to the cortisone injection, although my gynecologist wasn't aware of that as a side effect.

I am 58 yrs old and postmenopausal. I actually had 3 separate episodes of postmenopausal bleeding within 14 months…had exams, paps, ultrasounds, d/c w hysperscopy, biopsies all which were negative. The 3rd episode was this weekend and I went back into my medical files and realized I had injections in both my shoulders 2 weeks prior to every single episode of my bleeding. Waiting for Gyno to call me back to discuss next steps. Very frustrating. Of course when I spoke to her assistant, they never heard of anything like that.
