How long can a transvaginal ultrasound wand be in a vagina before it causes cavitation or heating?

How long can a transvaginal ultrasound wand be in a vagina before it causes cavitation or heating?

See answer: As a diagnostic procedure, ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that uses sound waves to "see" inside your body and create detailed images. The wand, aka "transducer", used for diagnostic purposes does not emit heat or cause cavitation. When used as a therapeutic or treatment procedure, such as with liposuction, more powerful transducers are used which do emit heat and can cause cavitation. ...Read more

How can a doctor tell you how long its been since you miscarried from a transvaginal ultrasound and can they be wrong if your not that far along

An : An ultrasound can detect if you are pregnant, if the fetus has a heartbeat (around 7 weeks) or if it does not have a heartbeat when it should (not a viable fetus), and if your cervix is open and a miscarriage is occuring. If you had a miscarriage and all the products of conception (fetal tissue) has passed there is no way to tell "how long it's been" since the loss occurred. Lastly, an ultrasound may not provide all the clues if read incorrectly, therefore serial blood tests to check the level of pregnancy hormone in your body will tell you exactly where you stand (pregnant or not). I am so sorry you are going through all of this. I wish you the very best. ...Read more
