We report a case of a tightly circumcised woman who bled irregularly throughout her first year of marriage but failed to conceive. The detection and management of a large but hidden cervical polyp solved her problems. We suggest that such cases, especially in immigrant women, require deeper investigation than might at first appear to be needed.
