Report any unusual vaginal bleeding right away while using Premarin. Vaginal bleeding after menopause may be a warning sign of cancer of the uterus (womb). Your doctor should check any unusual vaginal bleeding to find out the cause. Lab tests, including a lipid profile, may be performed to monitor your progress. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments. Premarin may affect some lab tests results. Make sure laboratory personnel and your doctors know you use Premarin.
