Lesbian or Bisexual? Do I need to come out a second time?

Hi everyone. I lived most of my life as a straight woman. I later discovered that I am sexually attracted to women. My sexual attraction went from being all about guys to being more about women. I have been identifying as Bisexual for the past 7 years. What I don't know is if I will lose my attraction to men all together and become a Lesbian. I could be in transition but I could remain Bisexual also. I am confused as to weather I am Bi or Les. I came out as a Bisexual woman but if I discover later that i am really a Lesbian does that mean I should come out  a second time?

I don't think you would have to come out a second time if people in your life already know that you're bi. What if, a few years down the road, you start to feel attraction for men again?
