Signs and symptoms of endometrial polyps
Endometrial polyps are more common after menopause, although younger women may also be affected.
Endometrial polyps are often associated with abnormal uterine bleeding. They can cause bleeding in between periods (intermenstrual bleeding or spotting), irregular periods (metorrhagia), post-coital bleeding (bleeding following intercourse) and post-menopausal bleeding. Occasionally endometrial polyps can also cause severe cramping during menses (dysmenorrhea).
Causes of endometrial polyps
Although the exact cause of endometrial polyps is unknown, they may be linked to hormones and estrogen production.
Other factors that may affect the growth of endometrial polyps may include:
High Blood Pressure
Use of Tamoxifen (a drug used to treat breast cancer)
