Unhappy Getting my period every 10 days

I have got my period every 10 days for the last month. This has never ever happened to me before.

Usally my periods are (irregularly late: like every 35-37 days). This is really freaking me out.

I'm 30 years old (not on any Birth control - no children).

I had an ultrasound which showed a nodule/or polyp. I am so scared!! Has this happened to anyone before?

I have to have a hysteroscopy (where they go in with the camera) and a D&C. I am so scared...has anyone had similar experience?

Re: Getting my period every 10 days

Yes, I had a polyp removed about three years ago and had the same procedure done. I was having very heavy bleeding with my periods. The D&C is very easy to cope with, at least I found it to be. I was only in the hospital for about 6 hours from admissions to release. Only had a minimal amount of bleeding that day and just some slight cramping and went about my usual routine the following day. My polyp was benign, and I had many new ones forming which my doctor removed. He also showed me the pictures he'd taken of my uterus before and after, it's quite amazing.

So, rest assured that you're doing the right thing by having the D&C and stay confident that everything will turn out alright. Best of luck!

Re: Getting my period every 10 days

You're getting your period every 10 days, b/c your walls are still lined, and are not breaking down completely when you have your period. I don't know if this is related to the polyp or not, but the D&C will clean you out.
