Uterine polyps may be associated with infertility. If you have uterine polyps and you experience infertility, removal of the polyps might allow you to become pregnant.

Uterine polyps also may present an increased risk of miscarriage in women who undergo in vitro fertilization (IVF). If you're considering IVF treatment and you have uterine polyps, your doctor may recommend polyp removal before embryo transfer.
