Not sure: I am sure the ultrasound has been read, so please call your gyn office and find out the result.

Need to review: It takes a week or more to correlate with your clinical findings. Admit it, you don't just want to know what was seen; you also want to know what the next step is, options, and what the worse case scenario is. This deserves time to review. Let your doc get the report, review the images if needed, discuss with the radiologist if needed, & then formulate a plan. Believe it or not, this takes time.
