A need for dilation and curettage polypectomy surgery needs to be done to remove polyp. could you explain any worries post surgery and does this procedure cause 'incompetent cervix' in case of a wanted pregnancy in the future?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

D & C/ Polypectomy: The D & C will open the cervix temporarily to allow complete removal of the polyp. The curettage (C) or scrapping of the endometrium will not impact future conception or childbearing unless it is done far too vigorously resulting in Asherman's syndrome which results in scarring of the interior of the uterus. Post procedure recovery is very rapid and usually does not result in incompetent cervix.
