Hi all,


I am prepping for first ever ivf cycle (long story short I don’t have any fertility issues and we got pregnant after 2 unmedicated iuis with dd. We are using a donor and found out he’s retired so we only have 2 vials and want to give ourselves the best chance so hopped over to ivf). I had my sono yesterday and my RE found a tiny polyp (6mm) she said it was up to me but her recommendation was to leave it (due to the size and position). She said they will monitor it and if it grows a huge amount we will just do a freeze all and have it removed at that point. She said it was of course my decision but that it was her recommendation to leave it (she said they remove anything over 1cm but under that there isn’t any research that it makes a difference). Anyone else had this experience?

I recently had a polyp show up on ultrasound.  There was one and it was around 1 cm.  When I went to get it removed it turned out that I actually had many polyps.  I have had a previous successful pregnancy and before we transferred the embryo that resulted in that pregnancy, one ultrasound said I had a polyp and one said I didn't.  So now that I have had had many polyps removed it makes me wonder if they were in there when we did our transfer.  I carried a healthy pregnancy and it was great.  All this to say, there may be more polyps as that was my experience, and if it in any way is going to hinder your chance of getting pregnant, it might not be a bad idea to have them removed.  I'm sure you don't want to waste embryos and give you your best chance.  So obviously it's up to you, but from my experience you may have more than what they can see.
