What changes should I look for between gynecological exams?

Even after menopause, if you experience abnormal bleeding or discharge between annual gynecological exams, contact your doctor. It is important to watch for any reproductive health issues, especially since monthly cycles have ended. Pain is not necessarily a symptom of cervical or ovarian cancer, so any discharge, bleeding, swelling, or abnormal feelings need to be discussed with your doctor right away.
