Abstract

Purpose: The study aim was to investigate clinical characteristics of endometrial polyps in women with and without infertility. Materials and Methods: Study included all patients of reproductive age who had a hysteroscopy due to endometrial polyps during 30 months. Patients were divided according to infertility problems. Detailed medical history was taken from all patients (age, BMI, parity, comorbidities, symptoms/signs, and polyp recurrence). On ultrasound scan, the polyp's largest diameter and endometrial thickness were assessed. During hysteroscopy localization of polyps and other intrauterine formations were registered. Removed polyps were histopathologically analyzed (size and histological type). Results: Study involved 257 patients (average 38.5 years of age), out of which 79 had infertility problem, while 178 patients constituted the control group. There were no significant differences regarding patient's BMI, age in decades, number of abortions, presence of comorbidities, taking hormone therapy, symptoms/signs, localization or diameters of polyps, polyp recurrence, other intrauterine findings, and histopathological types of polyps between women with and without infertility problems. Conclusion: Clinical characteristics of endometrial polyps are quite similar in women with and without infertility problems.
