Patient Comments: Uterine Growths - Polyps

What symptoms, if any, did you experience with your uterine polyps?

Comment from: Morrison, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: May 02

I just had a hysteroscopic polypectomy yesterday. Looking back, my symptoms began at least 6 months ago. I began with tiredness, acne, increased urination, and weight loss. I quit smoking two years prior and live an active lifestyle. The increasing menstrual flow and pain was unbearable. I visited the emergency room (ultrasound) and then I followed up with my gynecologist (Pap smear). They did not locate anything and prescribed medications. I have previously been diagnosed with infertility. On April 1 2016 I had a water ultrasound and that's when they found them. I had several polyps which required surgery. However I began to have break through bleeding, and after intercourse. After 3 medium sized and 1 large one removed I'm feeling better already. I'm taking it easy and will return to work in 2 days. The urination frequency has diminished and hopefully the acne will go away. Waiting at least 1 1/2 weeks for pathology report. Hope to begin FET (frozen embryo transfer) cycle soon.

Each time I had sex I would bleed and sometimes on a normal day have spotting of blood when I pass urine. I also had irregular menstrual bleeding because of the uterine polyps.

I had my first uterine polyp 9 years ago. I gained 40 lb. that year doing nothing unusual. Polyp was removed and everything seemed normal (I never lost that weight). I had just regular Pap tests after that. Nine years later and post menopause I started to bleed and a very large polyp was discovered, no telling how long it has been there. I was dieting and losing a little and now cannot lose anything. I am crampy and tired, have lots of bleeding and clotting and waiting for hysterectomy.

I had a cantaloupe-sized tumor in 2010 on my left ovary that I had removed. I began having similar symptoms several months ago so I called my obstetrician/gynecologist and she scheduled me for a transvaginal ultrasound. My symptoms are pain during sex, abdominal tenderness, pressure on bladder, and spotting during heavy work/exercise. Because of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), I haven't had a natural period since 2001 when I went off birth control, so no period-related issues. The transvaginal scan revealed growth in my uterus, so she has scheduled a D and C and biopsy at the end of July.

I experienced light bleeding and spotting about 5 years after menopause, for a day or two, then it stopped. I began spotting again a week later. Gynecologist scheduled D and C and removed the polyp.

I was in menopause for six years then started bleeding. I have a mild prolapse also, so I went in for D and C. They found a uterine polyp removed it. I have a lot of fibroids and endometriosis. I will wait six weeks for the result. I am finding the prolapse very annoying while trying to do house work, gardening, yoga, etc., bending and lifting. My largest fibroid is 2.9 cm.

Definitely some spotting after sex and my uterus was seen on transvaginal ultrasound as a thickened endometrium of 8 mm. It's been very frightening thinking uterine cancer for two weeks. Ladies, don't leave anything suspicious go unchecked because one symptom of uterine polyps is post-menopausal bleeding.
