Today I had a sono done where they inject a saline solution into my uterus to examine the tubes and uterus itself. They tell me they found what MIGHT be a polyp in the middle of the uterus.<br><br>
Has anyone had anything like this? What happened with you and were you able to conceive and have a healthy and normal pregnancy??<br><br><br>
They are going to arrange for a procedure at the hospital (hysteroscopy i think is what it's called).<br><br>
They are not 10)% sure but they are suggsting polyp.<br><br>
other options but NOT LIKELY are :<br><br>
a) structrual abnormality<br>
b) endometrioma<br>
c) submucosal fibroid<br><br><br>
Not only did I have the SONO done, I also had my full bladder and transvaginal ultrasound done at the other clinic along with bloodwork (screening for hepatitis, hiv etc). I go back on friday AGAIN for trnasvaginal ultrasound and bloodwork. They said I have to keep going back until I ovulate..<br><br>
You know how you just want them to find SOMETHING so you know you can finally explain or understand what's going? *sigh* well so far they find this "thing" in my uterus ((the possible polyp), but not so sure I like to hear that either lol - never can be happy<br><br>
ohhhhhh well - at least they're **** working at finding an answer!<br><br><br><br>
But back to my question - anyone had a polyp in the uterus? in the middle of it?

I had polyps removed before I got pregnant with my daughter. I had it done during a D&C. Got pregnant a couple of months later. Now I am pregnant again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My tests are due to recurring miscarriages - did you have recurring ones before they found the polyp? How did they know to investigate that you had polyps? Did you have to have the procedure done more than once?

My doctor did an HSG (similar to what you had done) to check for polyps and structural abnormalities after my miscarriage earlier this year. She said if there were polyps she would easily go in and remove them. There did not turn out to be any, but she made it sound like it would be really simple to get rid of them.<br><br>
Good luck, I hope it's something very easy to fix and will quickly get you on the path to having a healthy pregnancy!

I've never had a miscarriage. However, I was spotting after we had sex. My OB scheduled an internal US where it was discovered I had polyps.<br><br>
So I am not sure how or why I got them.<br><br>
I had my Son Feb 2004, a D&C for excessive period bleeding May 2004, D&C for polyps December 2004. I got pregnant with my daughter May 2004. Haven't had any problems since.

I've had 3 miscarriages in the last year, they found a polyp, I had the hysteroscopy polypectomy, and now were trying again. We'll see. gl

wish you the best of luck this time around.<br><br><br>
I hope to be where you are in a few months <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I wanted to post this earlier and didn't have time. In all the research I have done, something rediculous like 65% of women (originally diagnosed with UNEXPLAINED INFERTILITY) get pregnant on their own AFTER having the polypectomy done. So yes, we're praying that it works this time around. Dr. wants IUI starting again in Oct, but we can't afford them right now ($400 each). So we're going to go back to clomid 150mg and see what that does for a while.<br><br>
We have 3 children DD 8, DD 6, DS 4, and our youngest Kamryn was still born at 38 weeks. Since then 3 miscarriages, or 2 chemicals and 1 m/c at 6 weeks. Dr. seems pretty confident that the early m/c's were from the polyp in there (couldn't implant).<br><br>
Good Luck to you...<br><br>
Oh, I had the polypectomy done at the hospital and ended up under general anistisia. Terrible headache after and vomiting. Flu like for 48 hours after. Great on Sunday after having it on Thursday 08/30/07. Even hiked 1.5 miles on Sunday and played 18 holes of golf today.<br><br>
you'll do great!!!

I'm holding out hope <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Just not sure if this is what caused previous miscarriages because of had a D&C since and I would think that would have gotten rid of any polyps? Although I do hear they can grow back quickly..<br><br>
we'll see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

See my doctor told me that a D&C would most likely MISS a polyp b/c it would be going in blind and not like they were going in specifically for a polyp...kwim? I hope you get some answers and get that polyp removed!!

I had a grapefruit size one removed before doing IVF (which I was doing anyway). It did not impact my ability to have a successful (twin) pregnancy.

Did they ever give any indication as to what caused them?

Hi, just wanted to post another positive story. As Tenk knows, I had been TTC for 12 months with no success. I had a very small polyp removed and finally got pg the next cycle. I'm now 30 weeks. I believe the polyp was preventing implantation, although for some people they cause no problems.<br><br>
The procedure was very uncomplicated for me, and recovery was painless. I had also heard that D&Cs can miss polyps - the hysteroscopy is a much better plan.<br><br>
They looked for mine because I had spotting for several days before and after my period, and they found that my lining was abnormally thick. Then they did the U/S with the saline and saw a polyp.<br><br>
GL to you. I hope it is polyps and not one of the other structural abnormalities. Polyps are pretty easy to deal with. I don't think they know what causes them, but they are likely to regrow in the future.
