Ovarian cyst ?'s: Surgery for an ovarian cyst/endometriosis may have interrupted your normal pre-ovulatory follicle, which may cause withdrawal bleeding. Endometriosis is treated with surgery for diagnostic and therapeutic reasons. Best is to be on oral bcp's which reduce hormonal production from the ovaries, and can be taken usually through menopause. Ask your gyn physician about bcp's.
