Is pelvic or ultrasound best way to check overies?

Ultrasound: A pelvic exam will reveal an abnomal ovary about 60% of the time - but a transvaginal ultrasound by an experienced sonographer will rarely miss an abnormal ovary (or uterus). The standard means to evaluate the pelvic organs is transvaginal ultrasonography. ...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

Pelvic ultrasound showed a complex cyst on my dominant ovary with septations. should I be worried and what do I do?

Pelvic ultrasound showed a complex cyst on my dominant ovary with septations. should I be worried and what do I do?

No need to worry: Cysts in the ovary are quite common. Septations are also common. Most cysts go away by themselves. It is important to follow them to make sure they are not getting bigger. If a cyst gets too large, it can get twisted which can cut off its blood flow. Then it will be need to be removed surgically. So, follow up with your doctor to make sure it goes away and doesn't bet bigger. ...Read more

Did a pelvic ultrasound this week the results show all the parts but no picture of the right ovary and its the part that hurts. Should I do it again?

Did a pelvic ultrasound this week the results show all the parts but no picture of the right ovary and its the part that hurts. Should I do it again?

CT: Do you still have your appendix? The ovaries dont usually hurt as much as they get blamed for. I would think more about your uterus having a spasm with pain radiating to your right side, or appendix, colon spasm, abdominal wall spasm. If a thorough physical examination can't delineate the source of the pain, you may need a ct scan, but i wouldnt have high hopes it would give a specific answer. ...Read more

Pelvic Pain: This can definitely explain why you are having pelvic pain. It's important that you f/u with a GYN for this as you may need an endometrial biopsy and or a laparoscopy.

Pelvic ultrasound. Left ovary has 3.8cm slightly heterogeneous lesion which appears to have increased through transmission but is not anechoic. ?

Pelvic ultrasound.  Left ovary has 3.8cm slightly heterogeneous lesion which appears to have increased through transmission but is not anechoic. ?

The vast: majority of the time in a premenopausal woman these types of findings turn out to be hemorrhagic(or "functional") cysts that are caused be the failure of a follicle to rupture at the time of ovulation. They continue to grow, and most eventually do resolve in 1 or 2 cycles. So, follow up in 6-8 weeks usually document resolution. If it doesn't resolve, further testing may be necessary ...Read more

Am 27 yr old. I did ultrasound of pelvis. Ovary reveals haemorrhagic cyst 2.4 cm? What's next?

Am 27 yr old. I did ultrasound of pelvis. Ovary reveals haemorrhagic cyst 2.4 cm? What's next?

Not sure anything: Hemorrhagic cyst is likely a corpus luteum. Often hemorrhagic and of no real consequence. Essentially every month the follicle grows and ruptures, bleeds some (sometimes more than others) and becomes a corpus luteum. The cl produces mostly Progesterone to ready the endometrium for implantation. ...Read more

I had a pelvis ultrasound today and I have a haemoharrgic follicle on my right ovary which is 22mm.   Will this affect my chances if conceiving?

Will pelvic ultrasound show abnormalities in you bladder as well as in your reproductive organs? Having urinary sxs and have a cyst on ovary.

Will pelvic ultrasound show abnormalities in you bladder as well as in your reproductive organs? Having urinary sxs and have a cyst on ovary.

Yes: An ultrasound is the best imaging study to look at the pelvic organs (tubes, ovaries and uterus). An ultrasound can be used to evaluate bladder. A doctor wanting to evaluate the bladder, may also use cystoscopy, or putting a camera into the bladder and examining the walls of the bladder directly. A cyst on the ovary won't typically affect bladder at all unless it's cancer, worried about growth. ...Read more

Pelvic ultrasound(trans-veg.)shows-acutely anteverted smallish uterus-47X32X46 mm. right ovary looks endometriotic& a haemorrhagic cyst18mm-is it bad?

See your provider: This sounds like a normal size uterus and normal size ovary. Endometriomas are ovarian cysts which contain old blood in them. 18 mm is pretty small. If you haven't had it, you might still benefit from a laparoscopy to look for and treat endometriosis especially if you have 4 years of infertility. You might also need reproductive endocrinologist (infertility specialist) if you haven't already. ...Read more
