Polyps and Fibroids
Significance of a Healthy Uterus for Fertility
The uterus plays a significant role in female fertility. It is where the fertilized egg implants and grows into a fetus. A healthy uterus is essential for conception and healthy pregnancy.
Polyps and fibroids are two common conditions affecting a woman’s reproductive health, including her ability to conceive. Polyps and fibroids can interfere with the uterus’s normal functioning and decrease pregnancy chances.
Polyps can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus, while fibroids can cause other issues, such as abnormal positioning of the fetus or preterm labour.
This is why it’s important to seek the care of a qualified infertility specialist if you experience any symptoms of polyps or fibroids. She can help ensure that your uterus is healthy and functioning optimally.
Maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet, can also help promote uterine health and increase fertility. Taking care of your uterus can improve your chances of conceiving and carrying a healthy pregnancy to term.
Understanding Polyps and Fibroids
Polyps are non-cancerous growths that develop in or around the uterus. Fibroids, on the other hand, are benign tumours that grow within the uterine walls. While both conditions are usually harmless, they can interfere with fertility.
Polyps and fibroids can cause many symptoms, such as heavy bleeding, painful periods, and infertility. Fortunately, these conditions can be diagnosed and treated.
Common Signs and Symptoms of Polyps and Fibroids
Infertile couples or females experiencing any of the following symptoms should consider seeking medical attention, as they could be indicative of polyps or fibroids:
- Painful periods
- Heavy bleeding or prolonged periods
- Painful intercourse
- Abdominal or pelvic pain
- Pressure or fullness in the abdomen
- Frequent urination
Diagnosing Polyps and Fibroids
At our fertility clinic, Dr. Supriya Puranik employs state-of-the-art diagnostic tools to determine the presence of polyps or fibroids. First, a pelvic exam is conducted. In some cases, an ultrasound may also be used to examine the uterus and surrounding tissues.
If the results are inconclusive, hysteroscopy or laparoscopy may be recommended to closely examine the polyps or fibroids. Dr. Puranik will provide a detailed diagnosis and recommend the best treatment options based on each patient’s needs.
Polyps and Fibroids Treatment Options
The treatment for polyps or fibroids depends on several factors, including the size and location of the growth, the severity of symptoms, and the patient’s overall health. In most cases, non-invasive treatment methods are the first line of defence.
Non-Invasive Treatments For Polyps And Fibroids
We offer the following non-invasive treatment options for polyps or fibroids:
- Hormonal therapy – Hormonal therapy can help regulate menstrual cycles and reduce the size of fibroids or polyps.
- Hysteroscopic resection – This is a minimally invasive surgical technique that involves the removal of the polyps or fibroids through a hysteroscope.
- Myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove fibroids while preserving the uterus.
Invasive Treatments For Polyps And Fibroids
If non-invasive treatments are not successful or appropriate, Dr. Puranik may recommend invasive treatments such as:
- Endometrial ablation – This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses electrical energy or heat to destroy the lining of the uterus.
- Uterine artery embolization involves injecting particles into the arteries supplying blood to the uterine fibroids. This limits the blood supply and causes the fibroids to shrink.
- Hysterectomy – In severe cases, a hysterectomy may be necessary to remove the uterus and eliminate fibroids.
