Re: uterine polyps causing infertility?


I'm an ovarian cancer "survivor." I use that word loosely because the cancer was found so, so, so early that some doctors would go it a borderline case. That being said, my best advice is to talk to a gynelogical oncologist. This type of oncologists specializes in the reproductive system and will have (hopefully) answers to all of your questions.

Best of Luck!

Re: uterine polyps causing infertility?

I am in the middle of fertility. I had a uterine polyp removed 3 weeks ago. Once the uterine polyps are removed and the uterus is healed, then there is a place for the baby to attach. They can grow back, but just take it one step at a time. It isn't bad to have them removed. You go to the hospital, given some nice drugs to put you into lala land. When you wake up - all better! I am not sure if they can cause you to not ever get pregnant, but I do know that they don't help.
