Endometrial Polyps

What are Endometrial Polyps?

Endometrial polyps are small, soft, growths in the lining of your uterus. Endometrial polyps grow very slowly.

You may have 1 or many endometrial polyps. Sometimes endometrial polyps protrude through the vagina, causing cramps. The cramps occur because when the endometrial polyps protrude through the vagina, they impinge on the opening of the cervix.

If the polyps become twisted and lose their blood supply, they can become infected.

Polyps only rarely turn cancerous. However, some women with endometrial polyps will have difficulty becoming pregnant.

Symptoms of Endometrial Polyps

Sometimes symptoms to not occur. Often, symptoms do not occur when the polyps are small. When symptoms do occur, the most common symptoms are:

  • spotting between menstrual periods
  • pelvic cramps
  • heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
  • bleeding during hormonal therapy

Diagnosis of Endometrial Polyps

Endometrial polyps can be detected by ultrasound or hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy is a procedure where a small scope is inserted into the uterus to look for polyps.

Can Endometrial Polyps be treated?
