Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

Is it normal for a transvaginal ultrasound to be extremely, extremely painful if you have never been sexually active?

Is it normal for a transvaginal ultrasound to be extremely, extremely painful if you have never been sexually active?

Yes: If you have not previously had intercourse then the introduction of the probe would involve stretching or even tearing the hymen (slang term: cherry). This can produce pain. If you are a virgin, notify the person in charge. They may elect to do the exam by scanning from the surface of the perineum, the space between the vagina and anus or even scanning from the rectum! ...Read more

If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?

2 weeks after: The estimated age of the pregnancy that you are given during an ultrasound is an estimate of how long it has been since the first day of your last menstrual period. Ovulation and conception occurs, on average, 2 weeks after that, but varies from one woman to another. Also, the estimate of 7 weeks 1 day they gave you is only accurate to within about 1 week ...Read more

I was told that it is normal for a transvaginal ultrasound to cause light spotting, even two or three days after the procedure. Why does this happen?

Think of dental work: Vaginal mucosal tissue is similar to that within your mouth -- so, think of what might happen after a dentist works. Occasionally there is some blood that you spit out. Probably there won't be any spotting, but there is the chance with a probe's manipulating against this soft tissue of a minor bleed. ...Read more

Atrophic vaginitis: Hi Betty, You have probably been menopausal for some years. This means that the vagina has lost the effect of estrogen in large quantities like the 20's. The lining becomes thin and will bleed easily because of the trauma of instrumentation. Pain also is a side effect of no estrogen. If you give it time it will heal, estrogen preparations will help heal the vaginal lining faster. ...Read more
