Bleeding After Transvaginal Ultrasound Not Pregnant
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?
I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and had some bleeding last week. My husband took me to the ER where the kept me for two days. After many vaginal exams, ultrasounds, and blood work.....they couldn't identify where the bleeding originated or why is was con

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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?
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. ...Read more
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?
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. ...Read more
I had a transvaginal ultrasound on 14 sept 2012. The doctor told me I am 7 weeks 1 d. Based off of this when is my most likely date of conception?
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
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 dating: First trimester ultrasound is accurate within 5-7 days. There is no test that can date conception more accurately than a 1 week window. ...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
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. ...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
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
20 weeks for gender: Domea: the gender of the baby is usually seen at the time of your full anatomy scan which is 18-20 weeks. Sometimes it can be seen sooner or sometimes the baby's position and other factors keep us from seeing it even when you are at the right gestational age. The heart rate is not a good predictor of the baby's gender. ...Read more
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
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 ...Read more
