My Doctor Sent Me To The Hospital To Take A Pelvic Ultrasound Why Do They Scan From Inside The Vagina
My doctor sent me to the hospital to take a pelvic ultrasound. Why do they scan from inside the vagina?
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 had a pelvic ultrasound and many other tests done yesterday at the hospital.. The doctors examined me and said it's Severe Bacterial Vaginosis. ?
Vaginal Infection: Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is basically an overgrowth of bacteria in the vagina--it can usually have a 'fishy ' odor and possibly a milky discharge. Antibiotics are the treatment.

Severe ab cramps, fainted, dizziness, hospital pelvic ultrasound showed ovarian apoplexy. 5 days,still in pain, tender abs. Back to hospital?
When to go back: This is a great question for an OB provider. It may be that the soreness lasts for a while. Going back to the hospital would not stop this. But you should go back if you have fevers, or if you cannot eat, or breathe, or if the pain has become much worse. They may need to check you again. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I just went to the doctor, he told my my pelvic ultrasound showed I had a blood clot. I'm very confused. Is this bad? why does this happen
My 77yr old mom had a pelvic ultrasound & they found fluid & referred her to a gyno. Doc mentioned cancer. What are they looking for? Is it treatable?
Waiting on Medicine: I understand it is frustrating to wait, but there is nothing to comment on here until the tests are completed and the diagnosis is known. And, of course until the diagnosis is known there is no way to predict what treatment will be needed. I would imagine the doctor is looking for all kinds of cancers and also liver issues, and other organ problems. The doctor will have her full medical history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have pid. Went fir pelvic ultrasound. The doc who did it sais everything looked okay aa faeas she cwould see. Does this mean it is normal?
Good news: The only feature of pid that doctors can diagnose on ultrasound is a collection of fluid in tubes, ovaries or uterus. It's thought that likely more women have pid than get diagnosed with it because clinically it can be silent. Likely if doc didn't see a collection of fluid and your not having pain or abnormal discharge and you've been treated with antibiotics, everything is okay. Good luck! ...Read more

Can a doctor tell from a pelvic ultrasound if an ovarian cyst is cancerous or benign? Or do they all look alike and need further tests?
It depends: Certain features make it highly likely that a cystic lesion is benign(e.g. a small "simple cyst"), and others make it more likely to be malignant. There is significant overlap between benign and malignant features, so at times it is impossible to tell. Other times the appearance is so characteristic that benignity/malignancy can be predicted fairly reliably. Age and other findings also factor in ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal for the doctor to order an MRI if the results of a pelvic ultrasound show a mass that she cannot tell is attached to the ovary or not?
I did a pelvic ultrasound on day 7 of my cycle and the doctor said i have 2 normal/healthy follicles in my right ovary. Does this mean i will ovulate?
