Re: polyp removal

Is this your first experience with cervical polyps?

I've had problems with recurrent cervical polyps. My gynecologist has said they tend to be a problem until menopause, but not after.

They do need to be removed as they can cause some major problems and require an op under general anethesia if not removed soon enough.

I've been told I need to have my cervix examined at least once a year to make sure they aren't growing back.

They can cause bleeding before and after removal. When removed in a doctor's office, they usually put a "coffee grounds" material in there to prevent them from growing back and to prevent serious bleeding. However, mine still bleed a bit for a week or so after removal and grow back as well.

I hope this is your last experience with them.
