    Hi girls,

    I have been on the forum for a while now. Started off in LTTC. Was too nervous to really post in tri1 but I thought id post my experience in case it helps anyone who has had bleeding at any stage.
    After 6 years of ttc I got my shock bfp at the start of dec.
    I started bleeding at 5+3 and had my first scan at 5+4. By the time I got to 12 wks I had had more trips to the hosp (both a&e and epu) and the gp
    Than I can remember. It was always the same story in a&e - they didn't really care and would book me a scan for a few days time. I repeatedly asked for an internal exam to make sure my cervix was closed but this was refused as I wasn't an urgent enough case. Well I had a scan at 12 wks and was told all was fine and hopefully the bleeding would now start to ease. It did not. At 12+3 I had a bright red bleed and went to a&e again. Again nothing was done. I was furious so rang the midwife. She arranged a consultant appointment for me the next day. He did an internal and could see straight away there was a problem with my cervix. I was referred to see another dr who was fantastic. Straight away he could see I had a large cervical polyp. As soon as he touched it I bled everywhere. He removed it there and then, saying he was 99% sure that is what was causing the bleeding. He explained that during pregnancy the cervix becomes more vascular and bleeds easily. The polyp was so full of blood that could explain the bleeding. He also said that it could have grown since I got pregnant due to the major hormone changes.
    Since I had this done last Monday...I bled for a few days which was to be expected...I don't want to jinx myself but things appear to be 'settling down'
    When looking online and on this forum I never found any mention of polyps!!!
    So girls...if you have bleeding and it's on and off please ask your dr to check your cervix and ask about polyps! If someone had checked me many weeks ago it would have saved weeks of heartache!!
    Im now 15+4 and have only just started telling people due to all the problems.
    I hope this helps someone!!!
