How big (length & width) is a transvaginal probe?

Tampon: Most are like a long tampon with a slightly enlarged tip. It is best to ask the doctor, the nurse, or the technician who will be doing the procedure if you want accurate information as medical instruments change all the time. ...Read more

When looking at a transvaginal ultrasound picture which side is left and right?

When looking at a transvaginal ultrasound picture which side is left and right?

Sometimes neither: If you are looking in the coronal plane (like slicing a loaf vertically side to side) left would be on the right side of the screen and right on the left side. In the sagittal plane, front (anterior) is on the right and back (posterior) is on the left. ...Read more

If I am looking at my transvaginal ultrasound picture and the baby is on the left of the picture does that mean the baby is on my right in me?

If I am looking at my transvaginal ultrasound picture and the baby is on the left of the picture does that mean the baby is on my right in me?

Baby position: The short answer is yes, just like a mirror image, but the baby is active, and any position at present is likely to change multiple times. It is nice to think about, but not of concern regardless of the actual position at this point. ...Read more

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

I had a transvaginal ultrasound last Monday morning. The pain all through was excruciating, and the probe was covered in blood. I bled heavily.

I had a transvaginal ultrasound last Monday morning. The pain all through was excruciating, and the probe was covered in blood. I bled heavily.

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

Transvaginal US ,1st patient of morning. when I went in the girl at desk & cover on probe. Chance of it was used cover? Freaking OUT about infection

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?

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

More time to see...: Having a doctor take a look and see how the look of genital region may be in 4-6 weeks since the healing takes time; giving 4-6 months is reasonable. Of course, if you are "panic" or..., you may go to see gyn-doc sooner. I hope your self-healing could optimize to your liking but remaining to be seen. How to handle such correctly?

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.

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

I had a vaginal probe ultrasound and doctors found fibroids in my uterus. Are fibroids fatal?

I had a vaginal probe ultrasound and doctors found fibroids in my uterus. Are fibroids fatal?

No: Fibroids are common and benign growths in the uterus. They can cause troubling symptoms such as bleeding, pressure on the bladder, or a big growth in the pelvis, but they can be treated effectively by medicine, uterine artery embolization, or surgery. Fibroids are not fatal. It is extremely rare that what looks like a fibroid is actually a cancer called a leiomyosarcoma. ...Read more

Want pics of fetus week by week?

Want pics of fetus week by week?

Not possible: Whereas it would be great to be able to see a fetus develop week by week throughout pregnancy, it just isn't feasible. Insurance companies will not pay for the ultrasounds and doctor's offices are primarily focused on the diagnostic aspects of ultrasound. Anticipate a possible dating scan, 18-20 week anatomy/ level 2 scan, then depending on clinical picture a scan in the third trimester. ...Read more

Why do I like seeing autopsy pics?

Why do I like seeing autopsy pics?

Good for you!: There's little point in trying to figure out why you like or dislike something. Instead, why not say, "I like knowing deep secrets. What frightens other people educates and informs me in ways that might help me understand health and disease. I'm a person of reason over emotion, and I know that without the autopsy, we'd have little scientific medicine." ...Read more

No photos.: I don't see any photos accompanying this question. Also, it would be helpful if we had more information -- how long you've had it, what other symptoms you're having, any new medications or recent illnesses, etc. "maculopapular rash" is a popular term among non-dermatologists, but it is not helpful in narrowing the possibilities. ...Read more

Is my boil scar normal? It's been months since its healed. Pic: http://imgur.Com/x9tjmev

One type is called melanocytes which carry our skin pigment melanin. A healing occurs, these cells get deposited in he area and give it the brownish coloration you see. Over time, there will be some fading as the injury matures. ...Read more
