<div align="center">I just found out that I have a polyp on my cervix that is barly hanging on. The hospital told me that they usually dont like to mess with your cervix if your pregnant, but since it has been causing me so much bleeding, that they might take it off. He said that if it detaches its self, that I could start bleeding and they might not be able to control it. I was just wondering if they decide not to remove it, when I go into labor and begin pushing, do you think that its going to mess with the polyp? I mean, thats what I was thinking. He said that it is so sensitive, that being poked in the stomach, walking, lifting anything, even going to the bathroom is making it bleed. So if it is that sensitive, wouldnt pushing when Im in labor just be a huge problem? I wanted to have my son naturally with no medicine or anything, so I was just wondering if anyone knew or thought that my polyp would be a problem when I go to have him. If it would make me start bleeding enough that I wouldnt be able to have him naturally. I dont know anyone who has ever had a polyp before, so I dont know anything about going into labor while having one. If you have any information or advice, I would really appriciate it. Thank you so much!!</div>
I wish I had more advice for you, but I dont know much about them. All I can say, is trust your gut. I can tell you, that during your pushing stage of labor, there will already be bleeding and fluid so if it were *me* I wouldnt let them mess with it. If it was irritated during labor then I would just say "hey, fix it now... now that my pregnancy isnt an issue any longer" I had a bad pap during my last pregnancy. I was told that I had 'precancerous lesions' and that I needed to have a colp done for a biopsy at 28 weeks. I was told I should do it, it could grow, cause problems yadda yadda yadda. I didnt buy it. It just didnt FEEL right to me, so I didnt do it. I waited until the pregnancy was over and THEN I went in and had it looked at. Turns out that I just need to have it watched and checked on now and then. It all has to do if the benefits outweigh the risks. Just know that anything they do to your cervix could cause problems. But, if the problem you already have is worse than what could happen if they go messing with it, then you might think about getting it fixed.
