An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

For what reasons might a doctor order an abdominal ultrasound after seeing a transvaginal ultrasound?
Guesses: I could guess many things, such as partial visualization of a structure, vascular engorgement (pelvic congestion) that may be caused by compression of proximal vessels, or a negative pelvic ultrasound that was done for symptoms that can be caused by abdominal structures. But it would be best answered by the ordering physician. ...Read more

They may want to see you again to ensure everything is ok. Good luck! ...Read more
Possibl but unlikely: The transvaginal probe should have been sterile and should have had a sterile covering (like a condom). Even if you are exposed to yeast it doesn't usually infect unless something has disrupted the natural bacterial flora that lives in your vagina. Did you receive antibiotics for whatever they were looking for or for any other reason? That's the most common cause of all fungal; (yeast) infections. ...Read more

Had sex on Nov 9 went to the ER Nov 30 exactly 3 weeks after sex my transvaginal ultrasound along with bloodwork came back I was 5 weeks is that possi?
That would be right: A woman is officially 5 weeks pregnant when she is 3 weeks past conception (about 3 weeks plus a day or two after having sex). That is because doctors count the official start of pregnancy as the first day of the menstrual period prior to the conception (and that first day is estimated to be 2 weeks prior to the conception). ...Read more
PMP bleeding: The ovaries after menopause shrink to the size of what we call streak ovaries and often times aren't visible on ultrasound or CT scan. While many women with menopausal bleeding just have atrophy, you have to treat it as endometrial cancer until proven otherwise. An endometrial biopsy or D&C is warranted here. ...Read more

If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?
Of What?: Of a tight, intact hymen? Yes it can. The vagina? If the examiner suddenly thought she or he was churning butter, or had a severe seizure during the exam then it might happen but I never saw such an occurrence. ...Read more
Thin u/s inserted: Routine female pelvic ultrasound has two portions to the exam. The exam starts with a full bladder and scanning with a fan shaped ultrasound (u/s) probe over the lower abdomen and pubic area. Then the pt is asked to empty her bladder and then a thin long u/s probe is inserted into the vagina for additional pictures. This portion is important and significantly improves parts of the evaluation. ...Read more
Different probe: Pelvic ultrasound can be performed over the lower abdomen. However, there is also a vaginal "probe" which can be inserted into the outer vagina (about an inch). It is smaller than the regular ultrasound transducer/scanner. This allows for much better imaging of the female pelvis (uterus/ovaries). It is very commonly done; it should not be painful. ...Read more

Ultrasound: There is not enough information to answer your question. Are you having any symptoms? Are you at risk for ovarian or other pelvic problems? Best course is to ask your doctor why they are ordering the test, maybe it is just a "screening" type of exam. ...Read more
Maybe: If the woman in question is able to insert a tampon then a low profile tv probe should be able to be inserted with gentle pressure and a lot of lubricant. I have encountered virgin women in whom I was unable to insert a probe. In such cases a trans-perineal scan is done with the probe placed on the external region of the external genitalia. A trans rectal approach is another possibility. ...Read more
No: Probe is lubricated and only inside for a few minutes ...Read more
Yes.: In a virgin, the entrance of the probe is slightly painful. After entry, it does not hurt. Most of the pain comes out of the spasm of the muscles because of fear. The more you relax the less painful it is to do the ultrasound in a virgin. ...Read more
