A 23-year-old female asked:

Is there evidence any where that too many brief ultrasounds can harm a baby or cause miscarriage?? at 9 weeks and 2 days ive already had 8 transvaginal scans and now im worried doctors may have harmed the babies. its due to spotting?

Why are you getting : There is no reason to have ultrasound this often in a pregnancy no matter the reason, a simple exam is all that is needed and perhaps a TVUS once per week
