Post Menopause Sore Breasts - normal?

I have a combination of pms-type symptoms, but I'm 53 and post-menopause - no period for 3 years.
It's not unbearable but (1) is this normal and (2) what could be the cause?  The symptoms are both breasts & nipples generally sore  (almost as if my milk had come in) and (after 3 years dryness) vag discharge, the stretchy ovulation kind.  Been going on for week-10 days.  Could the cause be ovarian?
Surely I can't be ovulating 3 years post menopause!

HI,
You should consult your Doctor for an examination. Breast examination and a gynaecological examination, pap smears and hormonal assay will help make the diagnosis.
Hope this helps.

I know it's been a while since you posted. I was wondering how you were. Did your symptoms go away? I'm 54-no periods for 2 yrs. My hot flashes suddenly stopped and my nipples and breast became sore. My abdomen bloated to where I could'nt wear my jeans and having moisture again. Intercourse no longer hurts. 4 weeks later bloating has gone away but abdomen has grown. Breast are better but a little tender. Still have the vaginal moisture. Very strange.
