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

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. 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

I never knew I had a fibroid until my first ultra sound for my pregnancy, the doctor told me to don't worry, I would only get some pain. is this true?

Yes,it's true!: Fibroids are very common. Many never cause symptoms or problems. If they do, (pain, increased or abnormal bleeding) get checked. Otherwise, relax! Is often no big deal. ...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

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

My first ultrasound for pregnancy doc told me there is a nondevelop sac of 4 weeks shd b 6 weeks i went through hCG level its in rang of 5to 6 weeks.

Possible miscarriage: This may be a miscarriage but it is difficult to know for sure this early. You can follow the HCG level for the short term (it should double every 2 to 3 days) and then repeat the sonogram in about a week to clarify the situation. ...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

Does having a tipped uterus affect ultrasound for pregnancy? At 4 weeks conception would the dr. See anything?

Does having a tipped uterus affect ultrasound for pregnancy?  At 4 weeks conception would the dr. See anything?

Not really, heart: "tipping" of uterus is how uterus points inside body and doesnt affect pregnancy. It may affect ability of ultrasound to see early in the pregnancy but minimally so. For example, if your uterus is retroverted (pointed to the back) it may make it a little harder for ultrasound to see as uterus is farther from the probe (particularly if theres bowel in the way as well). Can see sac, heart beat. ...Read more

Tests are accurate : If you have taken pregnancy tests at home and they are negative then you can rest assured that you are not pregnant.

Hi, is it normal to have continuous bleeding 9 weeks after D&C ? Ultrasound showed no retained tissue ( only fibroid). HSG levels below 5 since 3 weeks ago. The bleeding has been continuous and ranges from heavy/chunky to light.

Hi,
is it normal to have continuous bleeding 9 weeks after D&C ? Ultrasound showed no retained tissue ( only fibroid). HSG levels below 5 since 3 weeks ago.  The bleeding has been continuous and ranges from heavy/chunky to light.

A little unusual: It may be due to the fibroid, or just very slow healing, but bleeding for this long after a D&C is unusual. So I would probably check for infection with a cervical culture, to rule out a mild case of endometritis. If you don't have an infection, your doctor may consider a short course of hormones to control the bleeding. ...Read more

Fibroids & pregnancy: Fibroids are common causes for infertility, so the fact that you are pregnant, is a plus. However, fibroids, depending upon their location in the uterus, can cause miscarriages or premature labor and delivery. Work closely with your OB MD and keep all appointments as many patients make it to term with a live baby under these conditions. ...Read more

How could a fibroid affect the pregnancy?

How could a fibroid affect the pregnancy?

Location and size: If the placenta implants over a fibroid it can impact fetal growth and increase the chances of placental separation later in pregnancy. Also if the fibroids are large they can degenerate during pregnancy causing pain, cramping and even preterm labor. Finally, if a fibroid is large and located in the lower uterine segment, it can obstruct fetal descent. ...Read more

Is it possible for a fibroid to be mistaken for pregnancy?

Is it possible for a fibroid to be mistaken for pregnancy?

Perhaps - : If a dr. Did a pelvic exam and thought the uterus was enlarged, they may have suspected or suggested a possible pregnancy - when a fibroid was making the uterus larger than normal. With any kind of imaging (ultrasound, ct scan, mri) - it would not be possible to mistake a pregnancy for a fibroid. ...Read more

Can fibroids be missed on an ultrasound?

Can fibroids be missed on an ultrasound?

Yes, but: Fibroids can be missed, but only in certain circumstances. If the fibroids are very small or non-distinct, then they may be difficult to spot on an ultrasound. Or if a fibroid is pedunculated and high up above the uterus then it may be hard to see on a transvaginal scan. In those cases a trans-abdominal scan would be needed. But in general, ultrasound is the best way to see fibroids. ...Read more

Alter position/deliv: The location of fibroids can have several effects during pregnancy.The fetus can assume an altered position where a feature like the face or body parts will show transient distortions.(smushed appearance, ) it can also prevent the baby from settling in a head or bottom down position & lead to a surgical delivery. ...Read more
