To think my uterine polyp came out on its own?!

I am waiting for a procedure date for a uterine polyp removal but (TMI ALERT) I just felt something 'passing through' blush (I'm on my period) and when I checked it looked just like the polyp...

I'm really freaked out!

did you keep it?

How do you know what a polyp looks like? I'd still go through with the procedure if I were you, it might have been something else...?

I'll speak to my GP in the morning but I'm not sure what else it could be. I only had the scan this week and they didn't see anything else. I was hoping it was a coming thing so now I'm completely freaked out!

Common thing

Doctor google suggests it happens

shock they can come out? I've had a few removed but would love to see one! I imagine them to look like mushrooms with think stalks - did it?

It's not likely that it was the polyp - they're pretty firmly fastened in. Much more likely to be a clot or just rubbish tissue. I used to pass all sorts of stuff. My procedure didn't work but eventually Mother Nature sorted it out with the menopause.

Don't worry, but mention it to the team when you go next.

Crikey! Well I guess that a scan could confirm that?

My uterine polyp was the cause of my recurrent miscarriages and infertility. I wish that had happened to me!

My mums came out whilst out shopping. Freaked her out as she didn't even know she had polyps.

Hopefully that's it gone for you now. flowers

Just remembered when I had phil (my last polyp) I used to have huge clots, I imagine from where the blood collected around it - I have no medical knowledge to back this up, but thought it worth sharing.

I had one and was reffered to another hospital for a scan and it was gone. The dr said it's quite common - apparently sometimes they have people in surgery and it's already gone! Didn't feel or see it come out though.
