Probably not: It is not unusual to have irregular cycles. Menses can be affected by many things including but not limited to body weight, exercise, stress, and hormones including estrogen, progesterone, prolactin and thyroid. Continue routine care with your doctor and unless you are trying to get pregnant consider starting birth control pills to even out your cycles for awhile. ...Read more

Hi I had a pelvic ultrasound done, it wasn't a transvaginal, it was a normal pelvic ultrasound. If I was 9 weeks preg, would they be able to see it?

Hi I had a pelvic ultrasound done, it wasn't a transvaginal, it was a normal pelvic ultrasound. If I was 9 weeks preg, would they be able to see it?

Ambivalent: At 9 weeks gestation by last menstrual period a transabdominal ultrasound should pick up the pregnancy. If it doesn't, it should be followed immediately by a transvaginal ultrasound. The rationale for first trimester ultrasound is to determine, whether there is one or more embryo's, whether there is a heart beat or not, and whether the pregnancy is in the uterus or outside. ...Read more

Likely soon: If you have gone months without a period, and your ovaries have produced some estrogen during that time, then your endometrial lining will have accumulated. As long as you're not pregnant, the Progesterone medication that you took should trigger your lining to shed. It can take several (3-4) days to start bleeding after finishing the medication. If estrogen levels were too low, you won't bleed. ...Read more

Does a pelvic ultrasound have to be transvaginal to show a 13 weeks pregnancy? Or can it be a normal pelvic ultrasound

Does a pelvic ultrasound have to be transvaginal to show a 13 weeks pregnancy? Or can it be a normal pelvic ultrasound

Depends: If your uterus is tilted backwards and your doctor wishes to do a detailed anatomy look specially at the nuchal translucency area, than a transvaginal ultrasound will give more details. If it is just to check heart beat or placenta or just of remeasuring growth than a normal pelvic ultrasound should suffice. Discuss with your doctor. Good Luck and have an easy pregnancy and childbirth. ...Read more

Virgin, normal pelvic ultrasound and blood&urine tests. 4th consecutive spotting occurs 5 days after period ended; my Dr. Said it's ovulation spotting?

Virgin, normal pelvic ultrasound and blood&urine tests. 4th consecutive spotting occurs 5 days after period ended; my Dr. Said it's ovulation spotting?

Mid-cycle spotting: Your doctor's explanation makes good sense. It is not uncommon to see mid-cycle spotting around the time of ovulation as the ovulatory sac ruptures to expel the egg into the fallopian tube. Some of the resultant fluid and blood is passed through the cervix which tends to loosen its mucus plug during this time to allow for possible fertilization. ...Read more

No period for 4 mnths. Normal pelvic ultrasound. Not pregnant. Duphaston twice daily for 7 days. 6 days since. When will I get my period?

Hopefully soon: You should normally see some bleeding by 7-8 days after finishing the medication. However, you need a normal amount of estrogen hormone for this to work. Even though you are not having periods typically your ovaries continue to make estrogen. There are some unusual conditions when the estrogen levels are too low for the Duphaston to work. You need this evaluated. ...Read more

Virgin. Tiny pink spotting 5 days after period. Blood test results=normal; going to have pelvic ultrasound to assess for PCOS, no family history, why?

Why? That's my Q: Irregular menses are common in young women due to anovulatory cycles. You haven't mentioned anything that would make me think of PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome): obesity, irregular menses, acne, hirsutism, Check http://www. Womenshealth.

Yes: Many women with PCOS don't have visible ultrasound signs. You need to check testosterone levels, if high can cause facial hair and block ovulation causing menstrual disturbances. There is a link between PCOS, obesity and insulin resistant, your high fasting insulin indicates that. Monitor blood sugar very closely. There are several other blood test that can help confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

Have pid. Pelvic ultrasound normal. Lmp 14 aug. Last intercourse 12 aug. Preg test on saturday negative. Pregnancy test looks positive. What to do?

Finish antibiotics: When someone has a pelvic infection it is most important to finish the antibiotics, even if there is a chance of pregnancy. If the most recent home pregnancy test looks possibly positive, get a blood pregnancy test tomorrow - that is the most accurate to tell if you are pregnant or not. Tell your doctor your concerns. ...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
