    Default Anyone have polyps???

    hi girls
    i went in to have a hycosy procedure done today (where they put dye through the cervix and check on the tubes and everything via ultraound), everything was fine except they found a polyp on my uterus measuring 7mm apparently this may be what could have caused my miscarriage in october.
    has anyone had these and still had a successful pregnancy??
    what is the procedure and price to get them removed??
    anyone with any info on this please share xxx

    Hi dandelion, when I had my hysteroscopy FS told me I had a tiny polyp tooo but I cannot remember him saying the size...just very tiny...and he did a light (if there is such thing as light) D&C for me. How come your FS decide to leave the polyp and not remove it during the hysteroscopy? Were you under GA? I reckon you have to remove it via similar procedure - hysteroscopy again.

    Hey Mom2!
    I actually had a hycosy done which is similar to a HSG except they use an ultrasound rather than an x ray machine. I didn't need any anaesetic for it at all. They just inserted a catheter through my cervix then put water and dye through it which flushed out my tubes. The guy who did wasn't my FS and said that a polyp under 5mm is small but when they get to 5 - 10mm is when they start to worry and want them removed.
    I think that I may need to have a hysteroscopy to remove the polyp..do you know if they are only able to remove it via d&c?? I don't really want that to be the case cause I hear it can decrease chances of pregnancy Were you left much out of pocket after you hysteroscopy? sorry for all the questions honey!!

    Hi dandelion

    I have had x 2 hysteroscopies for the removal of uterine polyps.

    My first gynae told me that women get pregnant with them all the time and it should not interfere with a pregnancy. I subsequently put off having it removed only to later learn from a fertility specialist that they change the pH levels of the uterus making it a hostile environment for implantation.

    Get it out and good luck for the future.

    Thank laned! I will definitely be getting the horrid thing out, I have a feeling it was what caused my miscarriage and I don't want to risk that happening again.

    Hi dandelion,

    I am not sure if you have to be under GA to remove the polyp cos my FS made the decision himself to do a D&C without asking me and so that removed the polyp too. Before my procedure I thought I was only doing a hysteroscopy under GA. He thought he would do the D&C before I started an IVF cycle just to make it a clean slate. I did not pay a cent for this procedure cos I was doing it at the public hospital. Though I was told of a waiting list I was lucky to get it very soon after, not having to wait long and lucky that my FS was doing that procedure on that day.

    I did another laparoscopy plus hysteroscopy in Dec just passed and my private health insurance (HCF) covered everything.

    D&C is quite a topic, there are doctors and patients who think this is no good and will scar the lining and hinder pregnancy but there are women who get pregnant after their D&C. I am kinda confused too.

    Heya mom2,
    I saw my FS today and she has me booked in for a hysteroscopy on the 6th of Feb. I won't have to pay a thing due to health insurance (thank goodness)!! And going private as well, I think I've been very lucky to get in so quick!
    She will be performing a D and C as well, and when I told her I would rather not have it because I think it will decrease my chances of pregnancy she actually said what you mentioned about women actually falling pregnant after having one.
    Supposedly if it is done very lightly then it just 'freshens' everything up, revealing new and clean lining and there shouldnt be any damage.
    It seems to be rather controversial but I trust my FS a lot so I am going to leave it in her hands and go with what she thinks is best.
    Good luck for your current ICSI cycle too!!
