I have just had an ultrasound due to bleeding between periods, and they discovered at least one polyp, maybe 2 in my uterus. I also have a cyst on my cervix. All of this seems quite new, but could the abdominal pain I have suffered due to Crohn's be actually the polyps or worsened by the polyps? Has anyone experienced this, or had polyps removed? I have been referred to a gynecologist, but it may be 3 months before I get an appointment. I certainly have lower abdominal pain at different times of the month, but I have only just started to track it according to my cycle.

I had fibroids on my uterus, which is what led me to finally have a total hysterectomy. It made my monthly miserable for at least 3 weeks out of every month.

I've had uterine polyps but never heard that they could be painful. I have noticed pelvic pain associated with my cycle and I think it's just ovulation related.

Yes, I had a uterine polyp last year. The year I was diagnosed with colitis. It was a fun year. Actually, the procedure to remove the polyp was a piece of cake for me. I felt no pain afterwards and had just a little light bleeding. They did a D & C and polyp removal. I was post menopausal though, so it had to be removed. I think it was making sex a little painful. I hope it turns out as easy for you as it did for me.

I had fibroids and polyps. I was in a ton of pain to the point that I was barely functioning. Several doctors later and I was told that it was my back and I was sent to 8 weeks of PT, but also scheduled to have the F and P removed. My GYN assured me that there was no way that they were the cause of my pain. Well low and behold I was in pain up until the day of my surgery but no pain after. HUH, I guess doctors don't know everything. I knew that the pain was not my back. I had an ablation. The procedure was pretty easy but I was wiped out and in a bit of pain for a few days. Overall it was well worth it though.
