Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

It is better to avoid the removal of polyp during mensuration, During menses there will be increased blood flow to the uterus, cervix, vagina and reproductive organs... hence there will be increased bleeding during surgery.... to avoid excessive blood loss generally surgery is avoided during menses..
