Polyps-Terrified!

Posted , 5 users are following.

hi ladies

please can you help calm my anxiety. ive had problems with painful sex for a couple of years now and was prescribed Vagifem but that was more for dryness which i wasnt experiencing.

Anyway we persevered but still painful so just put up with it really.

i went on hrt in Nov last year and all was well until the last 2 cycles when i had a period again. ive now been bleeding with clots for 10 days so had to go and have my old mirena coil out (it was way past its useful date.

Anyway, the coil came out fine but doc saw a small polyp and suggested a hysteroscopy would be a good idea just to check everything.

its scheduled for next week and although the consultant was very reassuring im just terrified and crying my eyes out imagining allsorts.

im scared of the general aneastheic but also the fear of something awful being found is making me feel sick. im just crying and panicking.

im really trying not to panic but if any ladies have been through this and have positive words of support id be really grateful.

thankyou so much xxxx

    Hugs!! You will be fine! I had that procedure a year ago because I'm still having periods n spotting at 59. But i also have a huge fibroid , no polyps. Everything turned out fine, I'm still hormonal and doc says enjoy my estrogen while i have it.

    I have 2 friends w polyps and both had hysteroscopy. They too are fine. I had twilight anesthesia with mine .

    I promise it's not painful, no more uncomfortable than a regular pap.
