Private Polyp Removal for Fertility 

Private Polyp Removal for Fertility 

Unsuccessful attempts at becoming pregnant can be devastating to partners wishing to conceive. Many women that try for months and sometimes years without success turn to IVF.   In doing so, you have a full work up to see if there might be something preventing you from getting pregnant.  One common issue can be endometrial polyps.  In fact, one study found that almost 24% of women have them.  

If your doctor feels this is contributing to your infertility, they might suggest you have the polyp removed by hysteroscopy.  Most fertility clinics in Canada do not offer this surgery so you have to go through your GYN to get on the wait list. Waiting for the public system might take months before you have the surgery, in some provinces, over a year.  Many women find themselves in a position of a time crunch if they have already been trying for months, or years to conceive and do not want to wait any longer. You do have options!  Private hysteroscopy to remove uterine polyps is available.

Let’s explore what uterine polyps are, importance of removal for fertility purposes and how you can achieve your goal faster by having a private surgery.

What are Uterine Polyps?

Uterine polyps are growths attached to the inner wall of the uterus that can interfere with fertility by affecting the implantation of a fertilized egg. These polyps can range in size and are usually non-cancerous, but they can cause issues such as irregular menstrual bleeding, infertility, and recurrent miscarriages.

The cause for uterine polyps is unknown but your risk for developing them is higher if you are:

  • Overweight
  • Being treated for hypertension
  • Approaching menopause or in menopause
  • Have a history of breast cancer treatment
  • Take medications that block estrogen 

The Importance of Polyp Removal for Fertility

If you have been diagnosed with uterine polyps and are struggling with infertility, removing these growths may improve your chances of conceiving. Uterine polyps can make it more difficult for fertilized eggs to attach to the uterine walls.  They can also block sperm from joining an egg or block the sperm from entering the uterus.  Polyp removal can create a healthier environment for a fertilized egg to implant and can also reduce the risk of miscarriage.
