What Is Polypoid Endometrium
Hysteroscopy after failed ivf showed polypoid endometrium. What is polypoid? Can this be the cause for my unexplained infertility?
Odd terminology: The phrase “polypoid endometrium” is a bit odd and not a normal way of describing endometrial tissue. Endometrial polyps are benign findings. Your surgeon would likely have seen them during hysteroscopy. It sounds like the pathologist is saying that polyps were found. Go over the report with your fertility doctor so that all of your concerns can be addressed. Read more
Biop. Report says. Inactive endometrium showing ciliary change, small foci. Endocervical mucosa w/rare polypoid changes. What's mean? Should I worry
Stop worrying: These are little benign things, basically curiosities, that are not indicators of premalignancy. We pathologists mention them as they're distinctive but the key is that we didn't see anything especially concerning. Read more
Only in postmenopaus: The endometrium is the lining of the uterus, and it 'proliferates' during the 1st 1/2 of the menstrual cycle under the influence of the estrogen that a woman's body produces in the ovaries. It's a normal state of being for the lining during the 1st half of the cycle. Nothing to worry about. Read more
Many Reasons: The endometrium is the lining of the uterus, and the lining is referred to as the endometrial stripe. Anything over 3-4mm is considered outside of the normal range. The obvious worry is endometrial cancer. But other things can cause this like certain medications and endometrial hyperplasia, which describes an abnormal and excessive overgrowth of cells in the inner lining. It needs to be monitored.

Many things can do I: The endometrium (lining of the uterus) is supposed to thicken every menstrual cycle and then shed off with menses if a pregnancy does not occur. Early pregnancy, incomplete shedding of the endometrium with a period, excessive overgrowth of the endometrium, and cancer can all cause "thickened" results on ultrasound.

Maybe: Hematometra is a collection of blood in the uterine cavity that would make the endometrium appear irregular on ultrasound. If the blood will not pass, treatment such as hysteroscopy with D&C may be warranted to "clean out" the cavity and ascertain the cause of the hematometra if possible. Read more
What did your gyn sa: Say? Find it hard to imagine that your gyn would tell u those results and not explain what it means as that is your gyn's responsibilty, it means u do not have any infection, or pre-cancer or cancer of the endometrium, can be seen with normal cycles in the 1st half or with people who are not regular and do not ovulate, please discuss with your gyn as your gyn should have a treatment plan for u.

Symptoms?: I assume this was a result of an endometrial biopsy done for heavy or irregular bleeding. Should be easily regulated with hormones such as low dose birth control pills. Also may be associated with hormone imbalance due to obesity, etc, in which case improved diet and weight loss may help. Feel sure your doctor will discuss this with you. Read more
Probably nothing: If periods are persistently heavy, it may be reasonable to hysteroscope and check for polyps. Read more
No! Only consider if: Tumor or uncontrolled bleeding. Thickening is a result of ongoing estrogen stimulation, in preparation for pregnancy, implantation ; blood supply to support placenta. 17 mm is quite thick; a few courses of bc pills can suppress if judged appropriate. Best to seek out and work with someone worthy of your trust. Docs paid for d;c, poorly for better assistance, buyer beware, as always. Read more
