Patient Comments: Uterine Growths - Polyps

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

Comment from: Talking Chief, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: February 26

I was taking estrogen and progesterone for several years after menopause. I started to get some heavy bleeding on occasion. One day while removing a tampon in the rest room, a large sausage-like polyp flew out, hit the floor and bounced into the stall next to me. The lady in there ran out screaming while I collected it and flushed it away. It was totally encapsulated. I went to my gynecologist who gave me a D&C and I have not had a problem since.

Before I was diagnosed with uterine polyps, I had a brownish smelly discharges between my menstrual periods. Also, the walls of my vagina is so itchy. There is also a pinching pain at the right side of my abdomen.

I finally received help for heavy bleeding during menses, spotting during sex, and weight gain because of uterine polyps. I had a hysteroscopic myomectomy and I hope it helps. I was given Provera 10 mg once a day for 10 days.
