Hello, I had a question regarding cervical polyps. A few days ago, I experienced abnormal vaginal bleeding during sex, went to the doctor, cervix was examined and I was told that I had a polyp, and will have a follow-up apptmt scheduled in the next few weeks to have it removed. I had not experienced any other bleeding, periods are normal, and I'm on the pill (hence, the doctor/nurse felt that this may have contributed). Also, last pap smear a few weeks ago was normal. However, the day after I had sex (and before my cervix exam), I was taking a shower, and afterwards had something fall out of my vagina. It was not a discharge, but a skin-like, flesh the shape of a small stalk...Very very thin. It was very dark grey in colour for the most part, and had whitish colour at the end of it. It was like bulb-like at the top and then when into a stalk. It was not a discharge. With what I've read about cerv polyps, I figured this was detached from when I had intercourse, and it was a polyp. But when I had the cervix exam, there was one found (which I'm having removed). I asked if it was possible that I had 2 polyps, and one had fallen out, but the nurse could not confirm this. Is it likely that this was a polyp? It prob could strength about 4-5cm in size, very thin. Could it have been something else? what? Do cervical polyps and endocervical polyps look the same?
