A 25-year-old female asked:

Cramping pain after trans-vaginal ultrasound and pelvic examination, why? and normal? not virgin.

No correlation: A transvaginal ultrasound and pelvic examination does not cause cramping. Why was the ultrasound and the pelvic exam done? Was anything found that could explain the cramping? The onset of the cramping from a different source could just be coincidental.

Normal...: During a transvaginal ultrasound (and pelvic exam) pressure is applied to your internal organs and they are moved around quite a bit. This can cause some cramping. Its common and not abnormal when it happens. Best wishes!

Normal: It is not uncommon to have cramps after a transvaginal US or pelvic exam, since a foreign body - ultrasound probe or gloved hand often causes release of prostaglandins leading to uterine cramping. Try taking ibuprofen or naproxen for symptoms, then night before and morning of procedure next time to reduce symptoms.
