Bleeding After Transvaginal Ultrasound At 5 Weeks
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
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
Possible side effect: From the manipulation. It should resolve within 24-48 hrs. If not, consult your GYN. ...Read more
Age 56. No periods for two years. Just had 1 day of bleeding. Went to Gyn. Transvaginal ultrasound result: Textbook Uterus. Should I have more tests?

My transvaginal ultrasound at 5 weeks only saw the gestational sac and nothing else. Is this normal?
The yolk sac: Should be seen, but it is OK not to see the fetus at this stage. ...Read more
diagnose w/ ectopic when no baby was seen on Transvaginal ultrasound @ 5 weeks & levels continue to double. Possible misdiagnosis?
Look harder: It could be intra-Abdominal. It could be what is called a mole. Ultrasound has a poor resolution. It may be so small that you don't see it but you must must continue looking. It is the test in medicine which is most operator defendant. Go to your local University Medical Center and have the most experienced ultrasonographer examine you. Not to be trifled with. Do it right away. ...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?
I recently had a transvaginal ultrasound done & it said I'm 12 weeks & 5 days is it okay that the baby measures 11.3 cm? Is that too big or too small?
Fine: The ultrasound dating of a pregnancy is based on the fetal measurements so, if the ultrasound dating agrees with your dating based on your last menstrual period, the baby is just the right size. Remember, however, that babies gain most of their weight in the third trimester and that is when you see the greatest difference between large and small babies. Best wishes to you both. ...Read more
Part of complete u/s: 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
Ultrasound: An ultrasound is an imaging study in which a probe emits and receives sound waves which rebound off of internal organs in order to visualize them. For a transvaginal ultrasound a specially designed probe is lubricated and placed into the vagina in order to better visualize pelvic organs/ structures. ...Read more
Yes: The earlier ultrasounds are more accurate than the later ones. 7 weeks is probably correct. ...Read more
It depends: Transvag us exam is an excellent tool to examine pelvic and lower abdonimal organs. Depends on the target of interest (ovary, appendix...) and the disease being investigated (mass, abscess...) it can at times be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid of the instrument. If you use tampon, you can handle the probe. ...Read more
Venous: It usually means that the veins in the pelvis are full or "backed up." this can result in pain, a condition called pelvic congestion syndrome which is treated in interventional radiology. ...Read more
Probably not: 22y female asks if endometriosis, EM, is detectable by "transvaginal ultrasound". Since EM is a theoretical clinical disease in search of a diagnostic benchmark, the answer is "probably no". Let's see what the experts have to say. Pathologists I have spoken to have not confirmed that tissue diagnosis is definitive. Be wary of invasive procedures which incite adhesions & "EM" & IBS-like symptoms. ...Read more
Many Things...: Ultrasound is used for many things related to fertility. Initially it is used to scan for normal anatomy. Later, for example, your doc might do scan every day or so to measure the size of a follicle on your ovary. Its much easier to see your ovaries and uterus with a transvaginal ultrasound compared to an abdominal ultrasound. Its certainly my preference. Best wishes! ...Read more
Doppler: Images of the blood moving in your arteries and veins. ...Read more
Blood flow: What you saw was likely the appearance of blood flow within the ovaries on color doppler. This flow is usually depicted on the study with the colors of red and blue. The red generally means the flow is directed towards the transducer (device that the sonographer holds to do the exam) and blue codes for flow away from the transducer. Typically both kinds of flow are seen during the exam. ...Read more
Depends: Depends on how much time the examiner is willing to spend looking. By 6.5 weeks the fetal heartbeat (fh) is fairly obvious. At 6 wks it can be very subtle and difficult to distinguish from maternal cardiac pulsations and would require measuring the rate and comparing it to the maternal rate. Not easy or quick! ...Read more
