You might also need reproductive endocrinologist (infertility specialist) if you haven't already. ...Read more

Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read more

U/s report said i had a retroverted uterus. Three months later, u/s said it was anteverted and then 6 month later u/s report said retroverted?Why?

May depend on how: Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into. Also, were both us examinations the same? Transvaginal would have an empty bladder and transabdominal a full bladder. Finally, having stool in the rectum and sigmoid colon would displace the uterus upwards and forward. ...Read more
