I have uterine Polyps and i am conceiving again.

I was told last January that I have Uterine polyps. I was able, however to conceive naturally in February and delivered a healthy baby boy in November. It took us over 3 years to conceive him. Is it possible that the polyps come out with the afterbirth? Do I still need to have surgery to remove the polyps? Will it take a long time to conceive a second child. I want at least one more child and although my OB wants us to wait a year if it will take some time I would like to start trying sooner than a year. Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, you may wait for an years time before goin for second pregnancy.BY mean time you may get a hysteroscopy done to look for the polyp and if needed then to remove them out of your uterine cavity.It is safe , diagnostic procedure and very useful.
Contact your doctor for this procedure.If you want any further assistance feel free to write me.

Polyps dont come out with the afterbirth.You will need surgery for that.But i agree with your OB that you should wait at least a year so that you body is healthy enough for a second pregnancy.I would advise you to wait for a certain period of time before conceiving again.
