No, this symptom appears with fibroids, which are often confused with polyps, which is not the same. While polyps are abnormalities of the uterine lining made of endometrial tissue, fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus that are composed of muscle tissue. Fibroids can cause painful periods, pelvic pain, infertility, etc.
