What percentage of time/how common is it to get a 2nd uterine polyp or for 1 2 grow back after removal of a polyp? Ave length of time this happens?

If that was a d&c, then the polyp or polyps got removed entirely and it should not regrow quickly unless it is cancerous.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
