Hello,

Thanks for posting your query on Health Care Magic.

Based on history given by you, I can understand that you had the last delivery 14 years back.

Thereafter you had a history of heavy bleeding and polyp.
For these problems, your gynecologist removed the polyp and took out the lining of the uterus. This procedure is called endometrial curettage.

Endometrial curettage does not hamper the process of conception and implantation i.e. you can be pregnant again.

However, since your gynecologist has told you that you cannot be pregnant again, I think some other procedure has been done may be hysterectomy- removal of the uterus.

Kindly, ensure the procedure that you have undergone and get back to me.

I can explain you things better.

Thanks.

Hello and welcome again,

On the basis of what your doctor has said "you cannot be pregnant or will undergo miscarriage if you get pregnant” - it seems that there is some kind of cervical incompetence.

A competent cervix is required to maintain the pregnancy. If incompetent, there will be first trimester miscarriage.

This may be what your doctor meant. Rest you can discuss with your treating doctor.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer

Hello and welcome again,

The details that you have provided are not complete.
You have mentioned that you had a polyp, which was removed.
Besides this, no other information has been furnished.
Your gynecologist has told you that you cannot be pregnant but the reason for not getting pregnant has not been mentioned.
The possibilities that I have mentioned are just few causes of inability to maintain the pregnancy.
Rest you will have to consult your gynecologist.

Thanks and take care.
