At appmnt for sonohysterogram, tech does tvs first then says fluid in my uterus made polyp show clearly & no need for shg. Is this correct or lazy?

At appmnt for sonohysterogram, tech does tvs first then says fluid in my uterus made polyp show clearly & no need for shg. Is this correct or lazy?

Likely: At age 50, the hsg wasn't being performed to see if tubes were open due to fertility concerns, thus if only trying to see if there was a lesion in the cavity, it seems as if the tech did find a lesion. Likely your doctor will perform a hysteroscopy to see it clearly and remove it. Make sure you are clear and like your doctors plan for care. ...Read more

I had an ultrasound at about 5 weeks. They saw a very small sac but said there was a lot of free fluid in my uterus maybe septate. What does it mean?

Waterbag: Early in pregnancy the walls of the waterbag are not as closely attached to the wall of the womb as they are lateron. On ultrasound the shadow of part of the waterbed is seen with fluid between the waterbed and the wall of the womb, creating an image of septation. This issue vanishes as pregnancy progresses. ...Read more

Diagnosed w/ectopic preg @ 6 weeks With no definite signs just no baby. But Doc saw small fluid pocket in uterus what could that be?

More detailed: If you were definitively diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy then immediate treatment with Methotrexate or surgery was indicated. If the doctor was uncertain due to the intrauterine fluid pocket then close follow up with BHCG levels and repeat sonograms should be done until a definitive diagnosis can be made. ...Read more

My ultra sound showed fluid in lower uterus or abdomen, possibly localized blood. What does this mean and what could be the cause?

Free fluid in abdom: It is not uncommon to have fluid in the abdomen on ultrasound or advance imaging such as CT scans often referred to by radiologists as 'free fluid'. This can be entirely benign or can be indication of a disease process depending on the symptoms associated. Ruptured ovarian cysts, bleeding from endometriosis, retrograde menstruation, ascites, heart failure, cancer etc can cause fluid in the abdomen ...Read more

Fluid on uterus, causing pain and bloating. Had mri, and ultrasound that confirmed a good bit of fluid in the uterus. Was told to go back in 3 Months?

Hcg drop from 6500 to 6300 after recent bleeding, went to ER to r/o missed m/c. Ehr@130bpm@6wk w/2nd fluid sac in uterus. What's it? What's my m/c risk?

Follow up: Without seeing your actual sonogram it sounds like you are describing a subchorionic hematoma which is a complex term meaning bleeding in pregnancy. They may have also seen a gestational sac from a twin pregnancy that did not form. 50% of women bleed in early pregnancy. Most will do fine but some unfortunately will miscarry. You will have to be monitored over time by your doctor. ...Read more

Suppose to have a hsg, they couldn't perform because I have scarring on my cervix. I had ultrasound and found fluid in my uterus. Is this bad?

Not unexpected.: If your cervix is scarred and a catheter could not be inserted for an hsg, the opening may be blocked or partially blocked, causing fluid to accumulate in the endometrial canal. The important thing is to address the stenosis (blockage). Your ob/gyn will discuss the underlying causes and treatment options. ...Read more

I think im pregnant although I have had the essure I have very light bleeding in the vaginal area but a pg test was negative. I had an ultrasound done a few weeks ago that would have put me at 3 weeks along and they said I had fluid in my uterus but didn'

Neg preg test: It is not likely if your pregnancy test is negative. You can repeat the test in 3-5 days to confirm or schedule a bhcg blood test with your doctor. Hopefully you had your post essure confirmation xray to confirm the tubes are blocked completely. If you have not please get that scheduled. Fluid in your uterus can be blood, clot, a polyp and some other things an dcan be followed up as well. ...Read more

I had fluid in my uterus stuck from a healed leep my period came on the next day am I ok? I won't have ti be dialated?

Unlikely: It sounds like your menstruation is able to pass through your cervix. It is common after a leep procedure that women can sometimes have a blocked cervix. If you're menstruating normally I wouldn't worry. As you likely no signs of a block cervix would include severe menstrual type cramping. ...Read more

My ultrasound report said '' No mass or fluid seen in Uterus and normal in size ", I had sex 4 months ago. Can I be pregnant?

My ultrasound report said '' No mass or fluid seen in Uterus and normal in size ", I had sex 4 months ago. Can I be pregnant?

A urine: Pregnancy test detects B-HCG in the urine, which is present during pregnancy. A negative urine pregnancy test 4 months after sex certainly rules out a current pregnancy. There is nothing in your ultrasound report to suggest an intrauterine pregnancy. Early pregnancy (less than 5 weeks) will often not be seen on ultrasound however. The answer to your question will be found with the test. ...Read more

I had a vaginail ultrasound down cause I was having pin on my right ovarie and doc said he seen fluid and my uterus has thicken am I pregnant

I had a vaginail ultrasound down cause I was having pin on my right ovarie and doc said he seen fluid and my uterus has thicken am I pregnant

It's: It's hard to answer this question without knowing exactly what the ultrasound report said. It's entirely normal for a woman to have a small amount of fluid in the pelvis around the time of ovulation. A large amount of fluid, or fluid in a woman who is post-menopausal, would be unusual. What is thickened? The endometrial stripe, which represents the linig of the uterus, changes its thickness dramatically during the menstrual cycle, so this may also be totally normal. An extremely thick endometrium could represent something called endometrial hyperplasia or adenomyosis, though these words would probably show up very specifically in your report.

Ultrasound can miss a very early pregnancy. However, by the time you miss a period, there may very well be signs of a pregnancy visible in the uterus. ...Read more
