You really are dangerous with your lack of knowledge giving people advice on topics you don't understand...

"Women need to know postmenopausal bleeding is never normal, and it may be an early symptom of endometrial cancer. Any bleeding, even spotting, should trigger a visit to your doctor as soon as possible. Don’t wait to make an appointment until after the holidays or even next week. Do it today."

So yes....as a matter of fact post menopausal spotting is quite literally a case of the "sky is potentially falling" and it should be evaluated RIGHT AWAY

I thank everyone for their advice I really appreciate it I haven't seen anything for the last 2 days and like i said it was so light i barely noticed it, but will contact my gynecologist. We were just worried about getting pregnant and i was wondering about the difference if there is a difference between being cut and tied and being cut and burnt. My husband keeps telling me its not possible because he did not just tied he got burnt.

Just curious....

You seem awful worried about your husband's vasectomy

You state that you are 54 years of age and haven't had "your monthly" in 3 years

Menopause is established when periods have ceased for 12 months....

At age 54 with 3 years of no periods you are most definitely "post menopausal" and getting pregnant is not possible on YOUR end regardless of the effectiveness of your husband's surgery

Any "spotting" in a post menopausal female is concerning and you should definitely get it checked out.

This is highly unlikely to be a pregnancy issue. This is an issue that would require a Dr. visit. OP would be well served in making an appointment with a gynecologist or other appropriate specialist.

You got an appt with a gyn, had testing (no biopsy?) and posted in roughly a 2 hour avail window?

And it was caused by stress? Just no.

Burning is usually a more sure-fire way to make sure it doesn't try to repair itself. I also believe, it means you can't have it reversed (where you can with tying).

The concern is NOT that she's hemorrhaging - the concern is uterine cancer and you don't wait until you're bleeding to death to get that checked out - any spotting after menopause is a possible symptom for uterine cancer or some other growth.

WebMD:
Bleeding is the most common symptom of endometrial or uterine cancer after menopause. It can also signal vaginal or cervical cancer.

Totally agree with this! Always giving advice with no understanding of what the issues really are. Absolutely ridiculous! Didn't happen to her or her parents, so there's no way it's going to happen to anyone else! LOL
