Can endometrosis be detected through ultrasound and is pregnency risky at the age of 37 wth thyroxine and subserosal fibroid.

Can endometrosis be detected through ultrasound and is pregnency risky at the age of 37 wth thyroxine and subserosal fibroid.

No, maybe, no, maybe: Endometriosis cannot be diagnosed on ultrasound, except in the unique case where it forms an endometrioma, . Even then, endometriomas can be confused for other kinds of cysts. 37 years is not 'risky' in the usual sense, though risk of birth defects goes up a bit each year. Thyroid is not a problem if correctly medicated, subserosal fibroid it depends on "where" and "how large?". ...Read more

Pregnant. Blood test is negative, found fibroids on ultrasound. Having pregnant symptoms since september, and baby kicks. What other test prove pregnancy?

Pregnant. Blood test is negative, found fibroids on ultrasound. Having pregnant symptoms since september, and baby kicks. What other test prove pregnancy?

Probably not.: If your blood test is negative, and there is no baby in your uterus, then you are probably not pregnant. If you are, it would be a dangerous ectopic pregnancy but a repeat blood test should be enough to prove that you are not. Could the baby "kicks" be stool in the bowel or bowel gas moving around instead? Fibroids can make you feel full or pregnant. You should talk to your provider. ...Read more

I had an ultrasound and was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid of 2.4cm. I tested for possible pregnancy and all three test came out positive.

Uterine issues: Pregnancy can coincide with fibroids, although, ultrasound normally is able to reveal pregnancy unless it is way early in the course. Doing serial pregnancy hormone measurements may help determine whether the pregnancy is viable. Doing a repeat ultrasound in a week or two may help see the baby if it was too small at the time of the 1st ultrasound. ...Read more

Blood tests negative, feeling baby kick, how can I determine my pregnancy using other blood tests. Fibroids make them not see anything on ultrasound.

Unlikely scenario: Fetal movements are not usually detectable to the mother until at least 16 weeks. By this time, no amount of fibroids should obscure the fetus. In general, even an early gestational sac should be visible by ultrasound in the setting of most fibroids. The blood test used for pregnancy is very sensitive and accurate. False negative tests are extremely rare. Discuss with your ob. ...Read more

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

Hi, I just want to ask about the ultrasound for pregnancy. Is it possible to determine in ultrasound how old the baby is inside?

With great precision: An early ultrasound is the most precise (+/- 3-5 days until 8 weeks) in the determination of the due date and therefore the fetal age. This declines to +/-5-7 days @8-12 weeks +/-7-10 days @13-23 weeks +/-10-14 days @24-28 weeks +/-14-17 days @29-32 weeks and +/- 17-21 days thereafter. Due to the biological variation of the ovulation date ultrasound <24 weeks is more reliable than last period! ...Read more
