What happens at a transvaginal ultrasound? Does it hurt? How big is the probe? Will it be different because I have vaginismus? I'm scared.

What happens at a transvaginal ultrasound? Does it hurt? How big is the probe? Will it be different because I have vaginismus? I'm scared.

Don't Worry!: If you are able to engage in vaginal intercourse then a transvaginal ultrasound should not be a big deal. The probe is about a foot long and no more than an inch in diameter. The probe is covered in a condom and lubricated with gel. You may insert it if you ask. It is advanced to the cervix and moved to see the uterus and ovaries. Many women like the tv exam better since the bladder isn't full. ...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

Sterile procedures: I don't understand the business about someone at the desk and cover on the ultrasound probe. But it is extremely unlikely that your doctor or his office staff would re-use the same probe without sterile precautions. If you remain concerned, contact the office directly and ask. I'm sure there is a valid, non-risk explanation for whatever you thought you saw. ...Read more

I had transvaginal ultrasound exam. I saw the nurse did not sanitise the probe and put condom on for sure. Can I get HPV from probe?

No risk, no worry: Most likely the probe had been cleaned after the previous patient, before you observed it. And the condom also is protected. HPV is not known to be transmitted in doctors' offices in this way. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

I had a transvaginal UZT and the Dr didn't use any condom with the probe. Could I catch HPV virus from the previous patient? I am worried now.

I had a transvaginal UZT and the Dr didn't use any condom with the probe. Could I catch HPV virus from the previous patient? I am worried now.

Contact that office: If the office was following infection control standard precautions, it is highly unlikely the Doctor used a naked probe for the procedure. Prior to the examination, the vaginal probe is sheathed with a condom non reservoir type. The outside is wetted with ultrasound gel. The condom probe tips range in size. ...Read more

I am scared that i might not bleed when having sex for the first time I have examine myself and my vaginal entrance doesnt look like how i see in pics?

I am scared that i might not bleed when having sex for the first time I have examine myself and my vaginal entrance doesnt look like how i see in pics?

Not bleeding is fine: The bleeding with first sex idea is overdone. Bleeding means there were little tears. If a woman has a healthy vulva, vagina, and hymen; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves gently with small motions until all is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be tearing or bleeding. ...Read more

I had a vaginal probe ultrasound last week.  I'm quite nervous as to what they were looking for?

Dpends on the reason: A vaginal probe ultrasound is used to provide a better view of the cervix (ifyou are pregnant), uterus and ovaries. Many times these structures cannot be adequately evaluated using a transabdominal ultrasound. What they were looking for depends on the reason(s) your clinician ordered the ultrasound. It could be ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, lining thickness, or cervical length among others. ...Read more

Without the image. .: It's hard to know what you are describing without the image, but it sounds like a placental chorioangioma, which is usually a benign finding. Google that, and look at "images" to see how it compares to what you've got. By the way, the small circle is the yolk sac. ...Read more
