In brief: Maybe a little
Any pain due to removal of a cervical polyp is usually limited to the procedure itself, and you can generally return to your everyday activities almost immediately.
Taking Ibuprofen before the procedure can reduce pain, and most individuals find that if they need any pain medicine at all afterward, Ibuprofen is sufficient. You may also have some spotting after the procedure.

In brief: Unlikely
There is usually no pain after removal but a little bleeding would not be uncommon.
