uterine/endometrial polyps

Posted , 4 users are following.

Been on this forum a few times with questions about post-menopausal bleeding.  All of you are such an encouragement and I thank you.  I am bothered again by the spotting and fairly light bleeding I am having.  Have had a clear biopsy.  Vaginal ultrasound showed lining somewhat thickened.  Taking progestin to thin it out.  After 5 months on that, started up the spotting/bleeding again.  Doing a hysteroscopy and D and C on October 6.  Doctor wants to look for polyps.  I am still concerned about how often and how long I bleed.  I may go several months or weeks with nothing and then it just appears.  Hangs on for a couple of weeks mostly spotting, sometimes more like a light to moderate period.  I know I have asked before, but if you have had experience with polyps, please tell me all you can about your experience.  My last bleed/spotting was just a month ago and lasted two weeks.  Now I am doing it again!  The constant bleeding plays with my mind as though there is something terribly wrong. In addition, I sometimes feel crampy as well.   Please, anyone else like this?  I need a bit more reassurance before the 6th of October.  I just want it done.

    How did u initially find out you had polyps. I wish I had some information for you. But I don't know why I'm bleeding. Maybe that is normal for polyps to bleed.

      I did have a light to moderate period the first two months on the progestion, but I started it back in March.  The doctor said I shouldn't be continuing any bleeding from that at this point.  That's why she wants to look inside the uterus, possibly stating that there could be a polyp, and then remove it along with doing a D and C.

    Hi Debbie

    I also take prostegen tablets every day without any breaks . My consultant said I could due to heavy bleeding but I had already had the hysteroscopy and had my biopsies were clear. They did find a polyp which he recommends that it should be removed . I had an appointment but no was too high do it needs to be rescheduled.

    So far I've only had a couple of day if very light spotting during th time I've been on them . But this last week I have been very achy in my pelvis area not sure if it's anything to do with tablets / uterus or what it is. I'm just seeing how it goes. I was told to expect some breakthrough bleeding but so far been ok . I do think if I do get it I will panic though I seem to have become paranoid !

      It can cause breakthrough bleeding , but I think the cool can aswell. Upto now I've only had a couple of days where I have had a very small amount if spotting . If I start to get it more often or heavier bleeding then j think I will be asking what else I can do .
