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

I recently diagnosed with polycystic ovary cyst bilateral thru my transvaginal ultrasound. Im having hotflashes for a week now, is this related?

Not likely: Its not likely from ovarian hormones, you are still producing them and they don't fluctuate too much in pcos. U have 2x the risk of depression and anxiety closely behind.

My ovaries are detected to be polycystic after a vaginal ultrasound. Could it be serious, could i be diabetic?

My ovaries are detected to be polycystic after a vaginal ultrasound. Could it be serious, could i be diabetic?

Polycystic is: An overused term that tends to cause patients anxiety. Most "cysts" on the ovaries are normal ovarian follicles. They get called "cysts" when they get large. Even then these simple cysts are not cancerous and come and go. So, overwhelmingly there is nothing to worry about. Diabetes may be associated with polycystic ovary syndrome but this diagnosis needs hormonal and physical exam findings. ...Read more

Can you tell me about polycystic ovaries? I have had a ultrasound with results... I am not over weight... Constant pain and regular periods?

PCOS : Pcos may be present in up to 30% of women. It is an Insulin resistant state that is characterized by weight gain, irregular or absent periods, hair growth, infertility and predisposition to diabetes. Check w/your gyn. Diet, exercise and weight loss will help, as will metformin which can reduce Insulin resistance and regularize menses and even fertility. Pcos seems unlikely in your case. ...Read more

Back to dr: The doctor who ordered the scan will need to see you and consider referral for sampling of your endometrial (womb) lining and consideration of hormone panels to look into the question of poly cystic ovaries. May also need kidney function test and urinalysis to look into the stone but only if it is in the ureter. See your doctor for further assessment ...Read more

Probably: 13 is the upper limit of normal but the 0.8 extra is not a lot. The uterus varies in size during the menstrual cycle as do the ovaries. If you are worried you should have a repeat study 1 week after your period starts or two weeks after a missed period. ...Read more
