Pregnant after polyp removal ?

User Profile
I had a D&C to remove a polup on December 1 2009. I bled for a couple days. Then I had my period a week later. Since then my husband and I have had unprotected intercourse. I was due to have my period on January 3 2010, and am still waiting. We have taken pregnany test and it was negitive ( a week ago). I am very tired these days and have been thinking that I might have a flu. My question is: Could I possibly be pregnant eventhough I had a negitive test? Is it possible to be missing my period because of the D&C?

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

Since you had a D & C and had bled following that, it is possible that your periods are delayed this month. If you still did not get your periods, then repeat the pregnancy test as it is possible that you could be pregnant but since the ovulation was delayed, the test was not positive earlier.

If it is negative, then consult your gynecologist to find the cause. D & C can also delay the periods but so also other reasons such as PCOS, hypothyroidism, anemia etc.

Hope this helps. Take care!
