Burst polyp!!?? Help!!

Hi there ladies

I'm hoping someone out there might be able to help?

I believe I might have experienced a burst polyp.

It started with bloating, dull heavy pain. Then had 7hrs of agony... Sweating uncontrollable. After heavy meds it finally past. After an uncomfortable night, I woke feeling Ok.

I therefore put this down to ovulation pain but later that day I had a brownish/yellowish discharge(sorry for tmi)with what looked like a casing or something. My doctor just thinks it's Endo related and as under bsge centre.. Should wait till surgery In Dec/Jan( to remove stage 4 Endo).

Would be nice to know what this was?..

I have cysts on my ovaries but surely this wouldn't have been the cause ?

Thanks In advance for any suggestions or advice

Best wishes to all X

I have this happen every flare up, I thought I was the only 1!

I experience a full ache in my abdomen then I feel like there's something heavy on my cervix that I need to pass and I tmi start 'queefing' and then I'll pass what you described.

It might be a cyst, one time when I had it happen, the ER doctors told me I might've had a burst cyst and they couldn't do anything about it.

I would check your temperature just to make sure there isn't an infection from the cyst.


Thanks for replying Hannah!

It's a horrible symptom.

Sorry to hear you always suffer like this. Been to A&E a few times with other issues. Try not to bother now as always send me home with antibiotics and unexplained diagnoses 🙄

Hope we both get respite soon xxxxx

I only got antibiotics once at A & E and it was for bv after being there 7 times, most of the time they sent me home and said "Bad period" "Take more painkillers" while it said on my file b/c I told the nurse I was on the highest dose of Advil and Tylenol over the counter and still crying.

I don't think doctors get endo, I keep getting told I'm too young and I was so fed up once that I told off a doctor when he said it about how I'm not to young it's just that 'they' don't listen for years.


All very frustrating... Are you being treated by an Endo specialist now?
