uterine polyps

I had an ultrasound done on my uterus and overies. Overies looked fine, but the technician picked up on a small 3 cm size "something" in my uterus. We waited a month and had the ultrasound again and they found the same thing. Both the ultrasound technicians and my gynocologist think it is a polyp. I was very concerned and my gynocologist then said I should get a D & C. I've talked to a gyn/surgern about the procedure and now I'm worried that I should leave well enough alone. Has anyone had a D&C for uterine polyps?

Re: uterine polyps

Jody, I had a uterine polyp and had a D & C to remove it. Turned out I had that one plus many other new ones forming. Luckily, they were benign so it's always best to have it removed and tested to be sure.

D & C is not that involved and I felt fine by that same night; (slight bleeding and cramping only) and was back to doing my usual daily chores the next day.

Try not to worry, and take care!

Re: uterine polyps

Thank you both for replying. I talked to my mom last night and she said that she had it done three times.Between your comments and my mothers, I'm feeling a bit better about having this done. Also, thank you for the web site. I'm going to check it out!
