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.

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

Is some bleeding normal during early pregnancy?

Possibly: When the pregnancy implants into the endometrial lining of your uterus you may have light bleeding. In addition, the cervix is often friable in pregnancy (irritated looking and bleeds easily). Sex, a pap, and vaginal exam may cause bleeding too. However, discuss your bleeding with your doctor as not all of it is normal. ...Read more

Possibl implantation: Many causes for bleeding during pregnancy, but all are abnormal, and require investigation.
