Mildly uncomfortable: Endovaginal ultrasound is performed with a long but narrow probe that is slowly inserted after lubrication and barrier protection is applied. It is invaluable for assess early pregnancy and pelvic pathology in a minimally invasive, safe, cost-effective and reproducible way that has transformed obstetrics and gynecology. It should not hurt, nor last more than a few minutes. ...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
Myometrium shows a small anterior body intramural myoma measuring 5.8 mm. Please explain that to me. That's y result of my endovaginal ultrasound?
Fibroid: A myoma is also called a fibroid tumor. They're very common, especially during the 30's and 40's. Usually they require no treatment unless they cause problems, such as abnormal bleeding. A small one like yours in the wall of the uterus (intramural) is unlikely to cause any problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If there is a septation, it is like the bubble is divided with this membrane. I am glad that you are under the care of a gynecologist and had a ca-125.

I am 6w1d pregnant, im having bleeding, so they did an endovaginal ultrasound, I have a gestational sac, but no yolk sac or fetal pole, why?
It may be normal.: The delay in reaching the normal milestones we expect to see on ultrasound in early pregnancy are simply the result of a delayed ovulation, so that you are earlier than your dates suggest. On other occasions, it may be that the pregnancy is not doing well. Only time can really tell, because bleeding in pregnancy has little predictive value. On occasion, a blood test can be helpful. Time will tell. ...Read more
I was curious how far along i'd be if the ultrasound said 6.5 cm/1.3/27 Hz at the top of my picture. ?
Sorry Mildred,: those numbers are most likely related to the ultrasound settings, (Depth/gain/frequency) Ask your OB or sonographer for your dates or measurements. In early pregnancy we measure crown-rump-length (CRL). Later, the fetal head diameter (biparietal diameter or BPD) from "ear-to-ear." Also look for abd. circumference (AC), head circum. (HC), or femur length (FL) since these are used more often. ...Read more
Are baby gender ultrasounds accurate? Is there any chance that an ultrasound showing my baby's gender is wrong? I'd hate to completely prepare for a b?
Depends on variables: I would never decorate my nursery based on a baby gender ultrasound. Those done around 20 weeks are likely to be accurate in the hands of a skilled technician, but the boy parts must decide to show themselves or they may be overlooked.I've heard of more moms being surprised by boys than girls. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Early ultrasounds are very reliable for dating. The traditional method of dating from the first day of the last menstrual period is less so since ovulation may occur earlier or later and conception can occur a couple of days after ovulation. Hope this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
