Thread: Periods after d/c and polyp removal

    Periods after d/c and polyp removal

    He I am curious if a heavy period is common after these procedures. Luckily my pathology came back clear (yea!). I had three polyps removed. I had a period 10 days post procedure and it t was very mild lasting 2-3 days. This time though had some very heavy flow..overfilled a tampon after 4 hours and came out like a faucet when I removed it. This happened twice in one night. Next Day I had to change every four hours. My gyno said no concerns physically and to let her know if I want to go on pill or to try ibuprofen to lesson flow. I sometimes have heavy days but this was really out of the norm. Iím just curious if anyone else had this happen? My dr didnít think it was related to the procedure from her recommendations. At least thatís my take on it. I stressed to nurse this was really unisual for me but she said since pathology was fine donít worry. Is a second opinion in order or just ride it out? Thanks!!

    You have recently undergone a procedure and your body needs to heal and adjust. I would tend to say go along with what your doctor is saying. If you are concerned then perhaps a second opinion is in order if for no other reason than to appease your worry.

    It can be totally normal following a D&C. If it continues to happen then it's worth further investigation to try to minimise it.

    Wait.. Polyps could grow more than 2? There goes my dream of having it reversed.

    The last time this poster was on this site was July 2018 so I doubt you will receive a reply. To prevent confusion I will close this thread. I encourage you to providing information and posting under the thread you already started.
