I went for my annual gyn exam, and the doctor found a cervical polyp, which she removed. Although the Pap smear came back normal, the polyp came back with a "1" -- dysplasia. Therefore, the doctor wanted to do a colposcopy. She found nothing strange on the cervix, but seemed surprised that another polyp was there. She removed that, and did an endometrial biopsy. I'm feeling like I'm o.k. I'm just wondering what could cause recurring polyps. I am on birth control pills -- I know they sometimes cause them.
I heard that its rare to get them again. I hope they're right because I was just diagnosed with one and I had SO much pain during the procedure. She did a pap (which was pretty painful) and then she said she thought she saw a polyp so she used something that I cant remember the name of (prob because I was in so much pain that I cant remember what she said lol) It was called "something nitrate"? I was so bad I almost fainted and was very naseous.
Anyway, how did they get rid of yours?
I think I have an excellent doctor. It barely hurt at all -- just a tiny, quick pinch. Plus, she talks and jokes as she's working, which keeps your mind off of everything. She had also called in a valium for me prior to the procedure, so that certainly helped.
