Can A Transvaginal Ultrasound See Inside Fallopian Tubes
Not if normal: If fallopian tubes are dilated from infection they can be visible as dilated tubular structures. Normally, they will not be visible unless a hysterosonogram is done and during injection of water into the uterus then the tubes will be visible as the water flows in them. ...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
Sometimes yes: And sometimes no, it can usually see if there is a mass or dilated tube though. ...Read more
Probably not: The fallopian tubes are not distinguishable with ultrasound, transvaginal or transabdominal. As dr. Kobasa notes a dilated fallopian tube may be seen on an ultrasound, but most blocked fallopian tubes are not dilated. ...Read more
Not typically: A plain transvaginal sono will not usually show a chronic scar of the fallopian tubes. Injecting sterile saline into the uterine lumen can allow for visualization of the tubes and if fluid is then seen in the abdomen then patency of at least one tube may be inferred. This is called a sono hysterogram. ...Read more

If fallopian tubes are blocked would doctor still be able to view the ovaries with trans vaginal ultrasound?
Test tube pregnancy: Fortunately, blocked tubes do not hinder viewing the ovaries with ultrasound. If the fallopian tubes are blocked, the most cost effective and promising way to a baby is test tube fertilizatiion. One step in this process actually is that the doctor visualize the ovaries with and under the guidance of ultrasound retrieves eggs from the ovary, which are then fertilized in test tubes. ...Read more
Not always: A transvaginal ultrasound will be able to identify hydrosalpinx, which is when the tubes fill up with fluid and get dilated or enlarged. This often happens when there is a blockage. Ultrasound could miss a blockage if the tube is not dilated or only mildly dilated. Hysterosalpingogram (injection of dye into the uterine cavity) can identify blockages even when ultrasound can not. ...Read more
I had a transvaginal ultrasound and was told that if my tubes were blocked they would be inflammed and visible on the ultrasound otherwise they can't be seen. Is that true?
Not necessarily: If there is active inflammation of the tubes they can be distended and visible on sono. Tubes can be obstructed and not dilated and not visible on sono. To diagnose obstruction an x-ray test -hysterosalpingogram involves injecting dye through a catheter inserted in the cervix and seeing if dye flows through the tubes. A similar test can be done with water and ultrasound to see if water passes. ...Read more

Had transvaginal ultrasound to see if I need morning after pill sex the day after sex. No fluid in the sac, everything normal. Isit accurate?
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

If I have a transvaginal ultrasound done and they still say nothing is wrong, should I push for a pelvic laprascopy? Have all the symptoms of endometriosis and have had tests done and dr's tell me see nothing wrong. Have very heavy and painful menstruatio
Hmmm, this can be : A tough one. Painful , heavy menses can be remedied with a trial of birth control pills or other forms of hormonal suppression depending on your medical history, etc. Might be best to try this before pursuing laparoscopy. Okay to ask your doctor about their opinion on surgery. Answer will depend on your particular situation. Don't be afraid to bring it up and one can also seek a second opinion. ...Read more
Could I have concieved four weeks ago (6 wks gestation) and still not see a gestational sac on transvaginal ultrasound? Also with a beta of 627?
If your cycles are irregular, you may be slightly off on dates. A pregnancy should be seen by 5 weeks and a beta of 1000, so I would suggest a followup transvaginal ultrasound a week after the prior one. If no pregnancy is seen at that point, then some concern would arise regarding the viability of your pregnancy. Please follow closely with your OB until the issue is cleared up.
Dr. S. ...Read more
Hey idk how far I am but my levels are at 1638 and they still don't see nothing with an transvaginal ultrasound what does this mean I can seem to get?
Repeat level: I trust you are talking about HCG level. In a normal pregnancy HCG values should double in two days. If the rise is less than 50%, it may be due to ectopic pregnancy. You should be under the care of a doctor for the sake of your and your baby's health and you should discuss it with her/him. ...Read more
Positive test hcglevel 950 LMP may 6 previous ectopic.transvaginal ultrasound today said they don't see anything in uterus is it early or another possible ectopic?
Too early to know: With an LMP 5/6, you would be about 5+weeks by dates. The HCG is only 950 and too low to see a sac yet in the uterus. Generally we can see something on a vaginal scan by 6 weeks or an HCG higher than 1500. You need a followup HCG done to ensure it is rising normally, then another ultrasound the make sure there is a sac in the uterus. Please see your gynecologist ASAP. ...Read more

The best thing to do is call your doctor and inform him/her of your symptoms. You may just be dealing with a referred pain from the probe touching your cervix and causing pain in the area you described. Try advil (ibuprofen) or Ibuprofen and monitor for improvement.
