Fertility Hysteroscopic Polypectomy

Polyps are small, grape-like protrusions or tissues that grow on the lining of the uterus . They are a non-cancerous overgrowth of cells in the inner wall or lining of the uterus. Polyps can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular bleeding between normal periods, or abnormal bleeding after menopause. For women of reproductive age, polyps can cause difficulty in conceiving or falling pregnant. In some women, the polyps do not cause any symptoms. These women only know that they may have polyp after an ultrasound scan.  

How is the procedure done?

Polyps are removed with an endoscopic procedure called hysteroscopic polypectomy. General anaesthesia is administered to the patient to put her to sleep. A fine, slender camera is used to look inside of uterus and remove the polyp. The lining of the uterus (endometrium) is carefully shaved off or destroyed by a special energy device attached to the hysteroscope.The procedure can be done in an outpatient setting, although it is more commonly done as a day care surgery inside a proper operation theatre.
