Uterine Polyps


I wonder if anyone can give me a bit of advice.

I went to a gyno a while back about my suspected endometriosis and he referred me to have an internal ultrasound scan. I've just found the notes and it says that I've got some uterine polyps, this hasn't worried me until now as I wasn't TTC and didn't really know what this meant. So I did a bit of research online and found out that these polyps can cause infertility, it makes it more difficult for the egg to implant.

Has anyone else heard of this before and if I have got this do I need to wait a while whilst TTC or do you think I could get them removed straight away? I've been told by the hospital to get a move on with having babies as I've got hip dysplaysia, so don't want to leave it too long, I really don't want to have my babies with false hips

First of all, it all depends what type you have, where they are and how large they are. With that info you'll know if it will affect your chances of having a baby, most woman will have at least one of these in their lifetime, and some people only find out they have them while pregnant. I have a few, I have a rarer type as well, but when I had surgery to get them removed, they were unable to. They were too small. Hope this helps.

Thanks for replying hunni, I'm so upset today after seeing that. I just hope it does take us longer to conceive with this. I've been told time isn't on my side, by the docs that diagnosed my dysplastic hips. Do you think I should go to the docs after 6 months of TTC and see if they can remove them, because I don't have the luxury of time? xx
