I had surgery to remove a pretty large ovarian cyst in August 2011 and got pregnant in October 2012.  It took a while for me because I have PCOS and was on different meds to help control it, not because I had surgery necessarily.  I had a HSG done (in October) to check/clear my tubes and got pregnant 2 weeks later.  I don’t know if any of that is helpful, but maybe you can talk to your doctor about your concerns?  Sorry it’s worrying you though, I know it’s super tough to wait and wonder what’s going on with your body 🙁

Just curious if your doctor gave you any reasons as to why you need to remove polyp again?

I had surgery to remove polyp in 2013, we were not TTC at that time and it didn’r really bother me much, but my doctor wanted to check whether it was cancerous. Plus the whole idea of getting rid of it was kinda good

.. Actually too good to be true as the stupid thing grew back again shortly after surgery. And we decided to leave it alone and just monitor it. Now we are TTC with no luck so far, my polyp apparently got bigger and I have surgery next month to remove it again.

What I’m trying to get at is unless you are TTC, or it bothers you in some way, or if there are any other concerns, it may make sense to just monitor it, especially if it’s small in size.

Obviously your doctor knows better, but this is just another perspective. It’s not surgery itself that’s scary, but potential complications, even though the risk is quite low from what I understand.

I was supposed to start IUI in November 2012 but we got pregnant in October (after 18 months of TTC).  I know it’s frustrating to keep having “set backs” with the surgeries. I still have 3 cysts and I’m always worried about the next surgery/when it will be. As of now the cysts aren’t large enough to require surgery, they need to be 4mm to have a reason to remove them and they’re all between 2.5-3mm so I just have to wait until they grow more then have them removed… and repeat every couple of years I guess.  Boo.  Wishing you lots of luck with the IUI or IVF!
