    Default has anyone ever had a uterine polyp?

    I have one. It got diagnosed a year ago but i was too scared to do anything about it. But i just keep bleeding? Really over it. Has anyone had one removed?

    I have had a uterine polyp. Discovered it in 2013 because if spotting/ bleeding during my cycle. I had it removed it in 2014 and I too was extremely nervous because I hate being in hospital and under GA. It was totally benign and I haven't had any problems since. Can I help put your mind at ease at all? Have you been advised to have it removed?

    I know exactly how you feel sunny flower. I didn't want to undergo a procedure either and the idea of the GA was the main reason and that's even though I have had a few across my lifetime now for a variety of surgeries etc. Thing is I have never had a problem at all with the anaesthetic, it was just a fear in me. Have you had a GA before?

    I asked the gyno I saw if there was any way we could just leave it there! He told me although it was unlikely to be a cancerous polyp we still needed to remove it and make sure. That and the fact I was having bleeding and heavy periods it really didn't make sense to leave it. I asked all about having it removed without a GA but he said that there was no way they would do the procedure without it. He said that was because it would be uncomfortable for me which I was willing to put up with but they wouldn't budge! Haha

    Believe me I totally understand how you feel but I was 100% ok after the procedure other than the stress I had caused myself about the anxious build up to the day and on the day of the procedure. Within a couple of days I had recovered and I was glad it was gone to be honest because it did make me nervous not knowing what this thing was. Given I was only 31 when they found it I was terrified it was something more sinister but they assured me that it was unlikely to be any thing nasty.

    I encourage you to talk through all your fears with the doctor you are seeing. It's very difficult sometimes to hand over control when it comes to our body and find that place of trust especially if you have been through traumatic events in the past which is why I developed such a fear of the operation and just hospitals in general. But it's a very quick and I was assured safe, day procedure. It will be such a relief for you once it's over and all that inconvenient bleeding is behind you!
