Causes, signs and symptoms of endometrial polyp (Uterine polyps)

There are no definitive reasons behind developing endometrial polyps. However, health experts believe that hormonal imbalance is one of the common reasons behind it.

Since uterine polyps are estrogen-sensitive, irregular estrogen cycles often lead to this unwanted cell growth. Ideally, these are small in size, but their size can range from few millimeters to centimeters.

While some women can have a single polyp, others can have multiple polyps. Postmenopausal, pre-menopausal, and obesity are some of the common causes behind endometrial polyp. Moreover, drug consumption and a family history of Lynch or Cowden Syndrome can be yet another cause.

There is a difference between endometrial polyps and fibroid polyps. Muscle tissues mostly give rise to these fibroids. There are multiple signs and symptoms of endometrial polyp that are worth the attention. Let us check out some of the common symptoms.

  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Too much menstrual bleeding, also known as menorrhagia
  • Vaginal bleeding even after menopause
  • Dysmenorrhea or painful periods
  • Some women even face spotting in between periods
  • Breakthrough during any hormone therapy

Diagnosis and treatment for endometrial polyp

Endometrial polyps can easily be diagnosed by a good ultrasound scan. When it comes to treatment doctors also opt for hysteroscopy for diagnosis of the endometrial polyp. In this method, doctors insert a thin tube inside the uterus cavity to locate the polyp. Secondly, they perform a final diagnosis, confirm the polyp’s type, and check the uterine condition on the inside. Finally, doctors do operative hysteroscopy for removing polyps.

Sonohysterography, also known as hysterosonogrphy, is yet another one of effective diagnosis method. Here, saline is inserted into the uterus via the cervix using a thin pipe. It helps expand the uterus, giving a clear image of any unwanted cell growth inside the cavity.

Doctors often opt for endometrial biopsy. They use a small suction catheter to collect tissue specimens from the uterine wall. This sample is then sent for testing in the laboratory to detect uterus abnormalities, especially endometrial polyps.

When it comes to the treatment, the small asymptomatic polyps mostly resolve on their own. However, if you face complications, then it is best to treat them by removing them hysteroscopically.

There are various treatment procedures for uterine polyps. The primary and most straightforward one includes medicines. Hormonal medications like gonadotropin and progestin are some of the best options. But, if you stop the medication, the symptoms can reoccur.

Alternatively, the surgical procedure is also helpful. Hysteroscopy and curettage are the two effective surgical procedure that helps in removing the polyps. On removing the polyp, you might suffer mild bleeding, cramping and discharge fluid for some days.

Pregnancy with endometrial polyp

Endometrial polyps are mostly noncancerous; however, if left untreated may lead to cancerous changes. For women going through menopause, it is best to the threat of polyps as the chances of turning into cancer increases. If you plan for pregnancy, it is best to treat the polyps first and then prepare for the pregnancy.

The reason behind this is endometrial polyps may lead to miscarriages and it also does not allow the fertilized embryo to attach to the uterus. Moreover, it can also lead to fallopian tube blockage.

Conclusion

Endometrial polyp is a common disorder that women may face. However, treating it at the right time can remove any further complications. After removing the endometrial polyps, the patient can feel tenderness and discomfort.

The best way to ease the discomfort is by applying a hot compress as it removes tenderness. Opting for the polypectomy will help in making your menstrual cycles regular. After hysteroscopic polypectomy recovery is quick and you can resume office after 48 to 72 hours through some females may feel slight heaviness in the pelvis slightly longer.
