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

Normal variation: The position of the ovaries varies quite a bit from women to women within the pelvis. Secondly, gas within adjacent bowel loops will distort ultrasound images and 'hide' anything behind that loop.

I'm getting a pelvic/transvaginal ultrasound this monday. Not sure how they going to do it when I have a latex allergy.
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
