Normally, endometrial polyps are detected when the woman visits her OB/GYN for a routine visit. They can be seen through transvaginal ultrasound.
To confirm the diagnosis, two methods can be used:
- Also known as hydrosonography, it involves fluid injection (a saline solution) to be able to see the polyp more accurately.
- The uterine cavity is observed by means of an endoscopy. This technique is also used to remove the polyp (hysteroscopic polypectomy).
