Help, having uncomfortable painful cramps one day after transvaginal ultrasound. Is this normal because I am a virgin?

Call your doctor: While it is not uncommon for some women to have mild cramping and some vaginal bleeding after a routine transvaginal ultrasound, however it is best to notify your doctor who performed the procedure about significant pain and bleeding.

It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

Missed last period, on day 18 of this cycle with heavy bleeding and big clotting. Transvaginal ultrasound shows endometrial lining of 21. Cancer?

Missed last period, on day 18 of this cycle with heavy bleeding and big clotting.  Transvaginal ultrasound shows endometrial lining of 21. Cancer?

Not necessarily: Uterine cancer cannot be diagnosed by ultrasound. You would need a biopsy to determine that. The lining is probably thick because you missed your period, and it accumulated, but you could easily have a benign endometrial polyp as well. Either way, it sounds like you need a further work up. Remember, the odds are in favor of a benign diagnosis. ...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?

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?

2 weeks after: The estimated age of the pregnancy that you are given during an ultrasound is an estimate of how long it has been since the first day of your last menstrual period. Ovulation and conception occurs, on average, 2 weeks after that, but varies from one woman to another. Also, the estimate of 7 weeks 1 day they gave you is only accurate to within about 1 week ...Read more

I was told that it is normal for a transvaginal ultrasound to cause light spotting, even two or three days after the procedure. Why does this happen?

Think of dental work: Vaginal mucosal tissue is similar to that within your mouth -- so, think of what might happen after a dentist works. Occasionally there is some blood that you spit out. Probably there won't be any spotting, but there is the chance with a probe's manipulating against this soft tissue of a minor bleed. ...Read more
