Is cervical polyps pregnant?

Cervical polyps formed due to chronic inflamed cervical inflammation, are common in women between the ages of 30-50 years. These are small lumps, which can come from the cervical or in the uterus. With polyps, a woman's fertility is significantly reduced.

With small polyps, it will prevent eggs and sperm from meeting, and if polyps grow larger can cause cervical obstruction, cervical sealing endangers women's health. Most polyps are benign but there are still a few cases where prolonged polyps can be transformed into pre-cancerous forms.

1. What is cervical polyps?

Cervical polyps are small, soft blocks that develop on the inside of the uterus. They come from the tissues of the uterus called endometrial. This growth will occur in the endo <3> uterus, the lining inside the uterus (the body where the fetus develops). They are attached to the endo will with a thin peduncle or a wide base and extend to the inside of the uterus. Their size can vary, from small as sesame seeds (several millimeters) to as large as golf balls (several centimeters). There may be one or more polyps in the uterus at the same time.

Most uterus polyps are not cancerous, but they can cause menstrual problems or fertility (the possibility of having children). In some women with cervical polyps there are no signs or symptoms, but when they are discovered, the doctor may find many reliable ways to get rid of them.

2. Causes of cervical polyps

Doctors do not yet have a scientific basis to know exactly why women suffer from cervical polyps, but it may be associated with changes in hormone levels. Each month, increased and decreased estrogen levels will direct the endo <3>ea to thicken and then peel off during the menstrual cycle. When there is an over-growth of the lining that makes up the polyp.

Some risk factors may increase the likelihood of causing cervical polyps that are age. The disease is common in women aged 30-50 years and is very rare in women under 20 years of age. It may be due to changes in estrogen levels that occur before and during menopause. Besides, obesity, high blood pressure and the use of breast cancer drugs such as tamoxifen can increase the risk of cervical polyps.

3. Symptoms of cervical polyps

There will not be any symptoms of cervical polyps, especially if the polyps are small or have only one. However, the most common sign is bleeding. It is necessary to see a doctor for advice and examination when experiencing the following signs:

  • Irregular, time-unpredictable menstrual cycle: This is the most common symptom. Most women have a menstrual cycle that lasts from 4 to 7 days. The menstrual cycle of women usually occurs every 28 days, but the normal cycle can range from 21-35 days. About half of women with cervical polyps will have an uneven cycle.
  • Prolonged or excessive menstrual bleeding(menstruation),bleeding between the menstrual cycle and bleeding after menopause or sexual contact. Cervical polyps are the cause of abnormal bleeding in about 25% of these cases.
  • The inability to get pregnant or become pregnant to term may also be a sign that cervical polyps appear.

Most cervical polyps are not cancerous. But there is still a small percentage of complications into cancer later on. That risk is higher if you go through menopause. Symptoms of polyps are similar to cervical cancer. Therefore, if the person has any signs of the disease need to be monitored by a doctor to find out the cause and timely treatment.

So can women with cervical polyps get pregnant? Cervical polyps can cause problems with fertility. They can make it difficult for a woman with the disease to retain a pregnancy or can make it more susceptible to miscarriage. It shows that if there is cervical polyps, the fertilized egg will be difficult to stick to the mother's uterus or the polyp will block the ovulation, making it difficult to nest the egg once fertilized. Several studies have found that removing polyps can help pregnant women. However, these studies still have no clear evidence that the removal will work for everyone.

4. Diagnosis of cervical polyps

Several methods can be used:

  • Trans-vaginal ultrasound: The doctor will place the device resembling a grafted wand inthe vagina , after which it will sound waves and transmit to the computer the image inside the uterus.
  • The doctor can use a trans-vaginal ultrasound procedure and place a thin tube called a cathe tube in the vagina while pumping saline into the uterus. The liquid expands the uterus and will help to better see the image of polyps during ultrasound.
  • Uterus endoscopy: The doctor puts the microscope through the vagina and uterus, it will help to look at the internal lining tissues. In case of seeing polyps it is possible to use surgical instruments to remove them.
  • Endometrial biopsy: The doctor will use a soft plastic tool to remove a piece of tissue from the lining of the uterus. Then, send that tissue sample (bios bios) to the lab to check if cancer cells appear.
  • Polyp scraping: This procedure is used in the operating room. The doctor will use a metal instrument with a small ring on the top called a scraper spoon. Use it to get polyps or tissue fragments in the uterus for testing. At the same time it is possible to use a scraper spoon to remove polyps at that moment.

5. Treatment of cervical polyps

Cervical polyps may not be required if there are no symptoms and polyps are not cancerous. The disease is in a mild condition it can disappear on its own after a while. But if it is past menopause or is at risk of developing cancer of the uterus, these polyps should be removed.

Medications such as progestin and gonadotropin-releasing hormone steroids can be used to help control hormone levels. This drug can shrink polyps and relieve symptoms such as severe bleeding. But these symptoms will often return when the drug is discontinued.

Surgical methods are often used by doctors to remove polyps at the same time as the procedure used to diagnose them, such as endoscopy or scraping. Instead of making a cut in the abdomen, they can insert additional surgical instruments through the vagina and cervical to remove the polyps. In case polyps in the uterus have cancer cells, surgery is required to remove the entire uterus (uterus removal).

Currently, treatment of cervical polyps is quite simple. Therefore, in order to ensure the health as well as prepare thoroughly for the pregnancy process, women should go to the gynecology clinic every 3 months to detect abnormalities in their health early and to have an early treatment regimen, avoiding long-term health effects as well as childbirth later.
