I'm sorry for the delayed response. I don't see anything concerning. Based on your symptoms and tests, you are experiencing a very typical perimenopause.  

Although your FSH says "postmenopausal" you cannot be postmenopausal since you have not gone a full year without a period. The FSH isn't useful during perimenopause (transition years before menopause) because hormones can fluctuate wildly swinging from a premenopausal / reproductive FSH level to a postmenopausal level hence of no real clinical value. I suspect the report says "postmenopausal bleeding" merely based on the FSH value which is very misleading.

Your endometrial / uterine lining isn't even thick at 4.1mm. It typically gets up to 16mm before being shed.

What has your doctor told you?
