Yes she can but it could reduce her chances of doing so. In patients who present with bleeding in between periods secondary to polyps this is likely to prevent or delay conception and removal is recommended. If the women does get pregnant with polyp in situ this is not detrimental to the pregnancy and occasionally is not found after the end of pregnancy and presumably is resorbed during the pregnancy.
