Endometrial polyps are outgrowths from the endometrium which is the lining of your uterus (womb). These are sign of uncontrolled estrogenic stimulation of the endometrium. A hysteroscopy that is a uterine cavity check with a thin telescope like device followed by excision of the polyps is what is generally recommended as treatment in cases such as yours. This is a perfectly safe procedure and is sometimes even performed under conscious sedation in the doctor's office. Depending on the other suspected conditions such as polycystic ovaries etc. your doctor may also recommend a combination of hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. A laparoscopy is an operation that looks at your uterus, tubes and ovaries using a telescope like device introduced through your belly button.
From fertility point of view, these operations are recommended. I hope you find this information useful. Discuss your doubts and fears thoroughly with your gynecologist before the surgery. Equipped with knowledge and facts I am sure you will feel more comfortable undergoing the operation.
