Brief Answer: You can masturbate after a week. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. After a D&C and removal of polyp you can masturbate and have a protected sex one week after the procedure. A polyp is not likely to affect the conception or pregnancy if it is not blocking the tubes. It can affect implantation if the polyp is inside the endometrial cavity. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health.
