Hi Toggie,

Thanks for the query.

Polyps won't affect getting pregnant. Though it might hamper implantation, as pointed by your doctor.

Removal of the polyps is a fairly simple procedure.

After removal of the polyps, if you have normal ovulation and patent tubes, then there is no reason that you cannot get pregnant naturally.

IUI/IVF is only an option if you have ovulation problems.

Hope you are satisfied with my answer. If you have any additional queries, I am available for follow ups.

Regards
