Brief Answer: Hysteroscopy for polyp Detailed Answer: Hi Your parameters are normal and you are in perfect health. No need to worry. Your follicles are also growing well. Not to worry. Endometrium thickness is good. Polyp needs to be evaluated by a procedure called hysteroscopy to see in side the uterine cavity and remove any polyps present by hysteroscopy. HSG cannot diagnose polyps well and it is good to diagnose fallopian tube patency and contour of uterus. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Brief Answer: yes Detailed Answer: Hi Polyps do hamper implantation of embryo into uterus. Hence need to be diagnosed and removed by hysteroscopy. Hysteroscopy is a procedure in which a scope is passed through cervix into uterus to visualise uterine cavity and check for polyp or fibroid. This is done under anesthesia as it is painful. There are no side effects. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol

Thanks for the advise. Need to know how to confirm if there is a polyp. Which test diagnosis if the polyps are present or not. Should i do a trans vaginal scan just after menses get over to recpnfirm about the polyps. My husbands semen parameters are normal. But at times after a relationship for 5-6 days, he feels he cannot get hard erection. Is it normal or is it advisable to have relationahip every alternate day throughtout the cycle.

Brief Answer: Hysteroscopy Detailed Answer: Hi Hysteroscopy is diagnostic as well as operative. It is most confirmatory way of diagnosing polyp and treat on the spot. Scan is not confirmatory. Hysteroscopy is best method. Ovulation occurs approximately in middle of cycle. It is advisable that you have intercourse daily in the middle of cycle. Let me know if you have any more questions.
