What Is A Uterine Polyp?

Uterine Polyp Removal

Uterine polyps are an abnormal growth of cells in the wall of the uterine cavity. It can cause pain and trauma for the victims and affect the quality of life. In certain cases, it can overgrow, create problems, and hinder routine body functions that have to be removed urgently to reduce discomfort. 

The main benefits of uterine polyp removal

As mentioned earlier, removing uterine polyps will help the person in many ways and have a positive impact on overall health. We will have a detailed look at the implications and try to understand how it affects the body. Check out the following,

✔️ Helps to reduce bleeding

Removing uterine polyps can reduce the instances of bleeding and prevent inflammation. It can have a positive impact on the overall health of the individual. 

✔️ Results in improved fertility

Uterine polyps can lead to infertility by hindering the movement of sperm from reaching the egg. This is one of the leading causes of infertility due to the growth of uterine polyps. Besides, it can also cause inflammation in the endometrium, and disturb the implantation of the embryo. 

✔️ Prevents cancer risk

Another potential risk of uterine polyp is that it can become a precursor to cancer and its timely removal and prevent the cell’s cancerous overgrowth. Having said that, every uterine polyp does not necessarily cause cancer and studies have shown that approximately only 1% of uterine polyps have the potential.   

Is there a link between polyps and weight loss?

There has been no evidence to suggest a direct link between uterine polyps and weight loss. However, its presence can make it difficult to carry on daily functions. As a result, it affects mobility and can lead to weight gain. The removal of polyps will help the person to be more active without any discomfort and may indirectly promote weight loss

Effective ways for weight loss

As we know, regular exercise and eating healthy foods can accelerate weight reduction. To maintain sustainable weight loss, the individual has to act consistently. See below for details. 

✔️ Daily exercise

Walking can be a better option for starters and once you feel comfortable, you may go for jogging and other moderate exercises. Remember that at least 150 minutes of workout is what is required to have positive results.

✔️ Healthy diet
