Postmenapausal bleeding after 16 years and Transvaginal ultrasound fails to locate one ovary?

Postmenapausal bleeding after 16 years and Transvaginal ultrasound fails to locate one ovary?

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.

Sonogram (Definition)

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

If I had an vaginal ultra sound when I was pregnant because of bleeding, that ended in miscarriage. Would they have been able to tell if I had pcos?

If I had an vaginal ultra sound when I was pregnant because of bleeding, that ended in miscarriage. Would they have been able to tell if I had pcos?

Diagnosis PCOS: Maybe, maybe not. Many cases of pcos do not have abnormalities in the ovaries even though the illness is named polycystic ovarian syndrome. I know it is confusing, but when the syndrome was named they thought that the ovaries always were filled with cysts.

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results

Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is.

I'm 12 weeks pregnant. I had bleeding with vaginal and pelvic pain. I went to the ER and the ultra sound showed nothing wrong. But the doctor couldn't give me an answer. What should I do?

I'm 12 weeks pregnant. I had bleeding with vaginal and pelvic pain. I went to the ER and the ultra sound showed nothing wrong. But the doctor couldn't give me an answer. What should I do?

Possibilities...: Bleeding in the first trimester is not uncommon. At the 12 week point, it could be some bleeding coming from the placental implantation, as it is developing/burrowing into the endometrium, it could also be from some sensitive cells ('friable') on the cervix, - these conditions wouldn't be seen by sonogram. Most impt: if ur baby is growing, has nl heart rate, - a miscarriage is very unlikely.

I am 7 wk, 5 days pregnant and had a transvaginal ultrasound yesterday. Today I have had a little bleeding when I wipe and small clots. Is this normal?

No...: If you are having vaginal bleeding during pregnancy you need to be evaluated ASAP by your GYN provider or ED. It could be something with no major consequences but it could also be a threatened abortion so make sure you see someone ASAP.

Had a transvaginal ultrasound and start bleeding few hours after. Is it normal? (not pregnant, not in my period)

Uncertain: Uncertain without exam. The probe could cause a small insignificant tear in which case the bleeding should promptly cease if normal clotting. More history and an exam are needed.

I am 6 weeks pregnant and had spotted bleeding. Today I had a transvaginal ultrasound and my doc could not dectect heartbeat but there is pluse?

I am 6 weeks pregnant and had spotted bleeding. Today I had a transvaginal ultrasound and my doc could not dectect heartbeat but there is pluse?

Approx 25%: Of people will have first trimester bleeding. The earliest you can see a fetal hear beating in 5w5d by ultrasound; a few days off, you may not be far enough along. I would get labs and/orrepeat the scan. Nature will take its course but there is still a chance everything with this pregnancy will be ok. Good luck.

Can transvaginal ultrasound cause tear?

Can transvaginal ultrasound cause tear?

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.

Anyone know what is a transvaginal ultrasound?

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.

Is it possible for a transvaginal ultrasound to hurt on a virgin?

Is it possible for a transvaginal ultrasound to hurt on a virgin?

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.

Will a regular ultrasound show something that a transvaginal ultrasound doesn't?

Will a regular ultrasound show something that a transvaginal ultrasound doesn't?

Yes: Regular ultrasound has a bigger "field of view" so may better see ovaries that are positioned higher or things that are near, but outside of uterus and ovaries. Transvag us usually obtains a more detailed view of uterus and ovaries, which is why both are usually performed together.

Not necessarily: Some free fluid can be normal. It can also be from a ruptured ovarian cyst. Also ascites is free fluid from various diseases. But a little fluid usually not bad. Your doctor will help determine the cause.
