Maybe: If the woman in question is able to insert a tampon then a low profile tv probe should be able to be inserted with gentle pressure and a lot of lubricant. I have encountered virgin women in whom i was unable to insert a probe. In such cases a trans-perineal scan is done with the probe placed on the external region of the external genitalia. A trans rectal approach is another possibility. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

Screening for myomas. This should be done with transvaginal / rectal ultrasound or is still possible via transabdominal USG? I'm still a virgin.

Screening for myomas. This should be done with transvaginal / rectal ultrasound or is still possible via transabdominal USG? I'm still a virgin.

Transabdominal ok: With modern u/s technology, larger myomas can usually be seen on a transabdominal ultrasound. In some women (such as a very obese women), its not possible to see them and a transvaginal u/s is needed. In my practice, we don't do ANY rectal ultrasounds to look for fibroids. Its easier to see the uterus with a transvaginal u/s but transabdominal is usually adequate. Best wishes! ...Read more
