Possible uterine polyps

Thanks for the reply. I've been reading the mayo information and other reliable sites, but I still feel a left with questions. I plan on bringing them up to my doctor. (I have a familial history, a previous C-section and a Paraguard IUD that we pulled in February during an aborted sonogram because it had moved and hoped that would return my bleeding to normal) I have my sonogram scheduled for the 18th of this month. I'm just hoping that this appointment works because I have yet to stop bleeding since the ER and follow up OB. The hormones that we had hoped would stop the bleeding have slowed the bleeding but have not completely stopped it. (Provera for 10 days and now a low-estrogen birth control) I find using hormones difficult because they make me irritable and other symptoms so I haven't used them in years. But as the information states that polyps are estrogen-sensitive being on estrogen birth control is making me a little more anxious. I know most of this is something for the doctor but waiting two weeks without any answers is tough.

That is indeed tough to have to wait 2 weeks to see the doctor with bleeding that won't stop. It might be worth calling the physician's nurse line, if that exists, or calling back to see if there's any way you could get in sooner.

You got my attention when you membered the Paraguard IUD, as I had profuse bleeding with that years back that led me to finally have it removed. Sorry to hear its removal didn't end the bleeding.

I'd also like to introduce you to @becsbuddy @lioness @brightwings, who may have insights on your bleeding.

Are you feeling okay, or are you feeling ill?
