Vaginal Polyp Symptoms
Having my 3rd leep in 10 years for recurring hsil cervical polyps (1st leep was for mild). Should i be concerned? Should i look into a hysterectomy?
Surgical Risk?: In general, hysterectomy is much more invasive and puts a patient at significantly greater risk than a leep. Further, hysterectomy should only be used when a leep is insufficient, i.e. Positive margins. I do understand the frustration/anxiety entailed by recurrent hsil though -- hysterectomy may be reasonable if your gyn can perform a lower risk procedure, like a laparoscopic or vaginal surgery. ...Read more
Polyp removal last fall and now vaginal bleeding between periods to equal ,75% of month no other symptoms. Likely polyp has returned?
I saw brown stain on my panty yest. Not sure what it is fecal or vaginal. Am menopausal and had polyp removed over 2 months ago. ?
See a gynecologist.: place a tampon in your vagina and see if the brown staining still persists. If it does, it is most likely fecal. Check the tampon later and if it is Brown, then you know that it is vaginal. if you are having postmenopausal bleeding then you should definitely see a gynecologist because this could be another polyp, a fibroid, or even cancer. ...Read more

Blood that remains in utero and passes to the vagina will decompose and appear as a brown discharge. One must examine the uterus by ultrasound to see what the endometrial lining is like. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
