Can uterine polyps prevent pregnancy?

By Rebeca Reus.
Last Update: 11/06/2017

In the most severe cases, yes. When uterine polyps grow near the Fallopian tubes, they may obstruct the opening of the tubes and lead to difficulty with getting pregnant. Also, if they irritate the uterine lining, they can prevent embryo implantation.
