Polyps inside the uterus (endometrial polyps) can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular bleeding between normal periods, or abnormal bleeding after menopause. For women of reproductive age, polyps can cause difficulty in conceiving or falling pregnant. In some women, the polyps do not cause any symptoms. These women only know that they may have polyp after an ultrasound scan. Said Dr Alphy( HYSTEROSCOPIC Doctor and expert Gynecologist ) During Arab Healthcare Exhibition and national Congress.
Know more about endometrial polyp
Dr Alphy said that our combined diagnostic and therapeutic hysteroscopy offers a unique standard test to confirm the presence of polyp. Not only polyps, but also other growths such as fibroids and cancer can all be visually diagnosed with great accuracy through the hysteroscope. The polyp is then removed carefully by the expert Best hysteroscopic Surgeon using special hysteroscopic devices. Removing the polyps can treat the symptoms that they cause. Pathology of the removed polyp is also an important test to make sure there is no cancerous change inside the polyps. At last, if needed, a therapeutic procedure to treat heavy periods can be done in the same surgery. Two of the common therapies are:
Insertion of “Mirena” – Mirena is a special IUD (intrauterine device) that slowly releases a hormone called levonorgestrel inside the uterus. Apart from being an extremely effective contraception, it is the first and only birth control that is FDA-approved to treat heavy periods in women.
Resection / ablation of endometrium – the lining of the uterus (endometrium) is carefully shaved off or destroyed by a special energy device attached to the hysteroscope.
