I had a miscarriage in March of 2017. During the beginning of March through May, I had multiple vaginal ultra sounds. None of the Vaginal US showed a Uterine polyp. Today 11/06/17 I had a Femvue done and the Dr. N found a Cervial polyp and a uterine polyp.
Why weren’t these polyps found in the previous vag US I had? Could this 1 cm uterine polyp be one of the many reasons I had a miscarriage?

I am sorry to hear about your prior miscarriage. Transvaginal ultrasounds are not the best at detecting polyps or small lesions in the uterine cavity. Ultrasounds are good at assessing larger masses and good at evaluating the ovaries. So it is reasonable that your prior ultrasounds did not detect the polyp. The best way to detect small polyps and lesions in the uterine cavity is with instillation of fluid and a concurrent ultrasound as in with a sonohysterogram or hydro-sono. A femvue test or an HSG can also pick up these small lesions because they too will place fluid in the cavity. The small intra uterine and cervical polyps are not likely the cause of your prior miscarriage. It is probably best to have a conversation with one of the doctors about this since there is more to discuss in relation to this question over the phone or in person. I'd be happy to go over this with you in more detail.
