how long have you been post menopausal for and how long has the bleeding been going on? it is period type bleeding or spotting?
don't worry about it to much! it a good thing seeing consultant tomorrow.

Hi wifey

I can't promise it's nothing horrible smile but but BUT the ICSI treatment may have caused a functional cyst which is sending your normones nuts and causing all this

Thank you guys for replying, I feel I'm not alone tonight in am unusually quiet house ! I'll let u know what she says last app the cyst was 8.5 and on three weeks its now 12 so I'm panic struck ! I've also got PCOS so trying really hard not to worry x

have you recently had ICSI? and your post menopausal ? or have i understood your initial post wrong?
in a non post menopausal women simple cysts up to 30mm are a normal part of cycle as often a dominat follicle. pco cysts are 10mm and under so it's not likely to be due to that.
bleeding can be due to hormones and non related to cyst to which are sometimes jut an incidental find.
