Uterine polyps: Uterine polyps are usually benign mucosal growths which are not sites for implantation. They can give rise to bleeding if they are twisted and deprived of their blood supply, but do not influence the implantation of an embryo. They occupy a very small area and statistically will not interfere with implantation.

Can remove: The lower uterine segment is above the cervix and below the mid section of the uterus. Polyps are very easy to remove. Discuss with your Obgyn. Some offices are equipped to remove them in the office. Others may want to do it as a simple day surgery.
