Can a transvaginal ultrasound cause a miscarriage?

Can a transvaginal ultrasound cause a miscarriage?

Almost impossible. : Compared to intercourse, which is not known to cause miscarriage, a vaginal ultrasound causes much less "agitation" of the uterus. Although sometimes uncomfortable, it would almost certainly not be associated with risk of miscarriage. ...Read more

Sonogram (Definition)

The sonogram is a test that looks at body organs with no radiation. It uses sound waves and can give us a 2 dimensional view of organs such as the kidney, liver, heart, and lungs. It can define spaces that are either solid or full of fluid. I can also guide large needles into an organ or near the spine, and can help define the area being cut open. Its a ...Read more

How can a doctor tell you how long its been since you miscarried from a transvaginal ultrasound and can they be wrong if your not that far along

An : An ultrasound can detect if you are pregnant, if the fetus has a heartbeat (around 7 weeks) or if it does not have a heartbeat when it should (not a viable fetus), and if your cervix is open and a miscarriage is occuring. If you had a miscarriage and all the products of conception (fetal tissue) has passed there is no way to tell "how long it's been" since the loss occurred. Lastly, an ultrasound may not provide all the clues if read incorrectly, therefore serial blood tests to check the level of pregnancy hormone in your body will tell you exactly where you stand (pregnant or not). I am so sorry you are going through all of this. I wish you the very best. ...Read more

Would an pelvic ultrasound, transvaginal ultrasound or cat scan show up a miscarriage?

Would an pelvic ultrasound, transvaginal ultrasound or cat scan show up a miscarriage?

Ultrasound: A combination of ultrasound (either transabdominal or transvaginal), B-hcg levels, and clinical information are used to diagnose a miscarriage. CT is not used because of its ionizing radiation. ...Read more

Hcg level on 4/14 was 1299 & on 4/16 is 1288. Transvaginal ultrasound on 4/14 showed an irregularly shaped fluid collection in my uterus. Miscarriage?

Missed pregnancy: Hcg should have at least doubled in the 48 hour window. Decreasing HCG signifies a failed, or 'missed' pregnancy. Be sure to follow up with the doctor who ordered your blood test. ...Read more

I went and had transvaginal ultrasound 1 day before 6 wks. Saw sac but no fetal pole or embryo. Said there is debris and they think i'll miscarry.

I went and had transvaginal ultrasound 1 day before 6 wks. Saw sac but no fetal pole or embryo. Said there is debris and they think i'll miscarry.

Only time will tell: Unfortunately, there is nothing anyone can do at this early state. Lack of a fetal pole at 6 weeks is not a good sign. Serial measurements of the pregnancy hormone HCG may be useful to confirm unless "menses" starts, which would also verify miscarriage. ...Read more

Is a beta of 1684 okay for a 4 week 2 day pregnancy saw gestational sac just on transvaginal ultrasound ?

Is a beta of 1684 okay for a 4 week 2 day pregnancy saw gestational sac just on transvaginal ultrasound ?

Maybe.: It sounds within the normal range but their are charts to compare age and normal bHCG levels that I don't currently have reference to. If your doctor or US tech wasn't concerned then you shouldn't be either. If you are bleeding or concerned about miscarriage, see your doctor/provider immediately. ...Read more

6 weeks 2days per transvaginal ultrasound today. Progestrone week and half ago was 14.6. Hcg today 16k.Gest. Sac, yolk sac, cr embro flicker? No hb.?

Concerning: you should see a heartbeat at an HCG of 16k. Repeat the HCG and ultrasound in 36-48 hours for appropriate rise and re-attempt at seeing cardiac activity. If the HCG is not rising appropriately, then unfortunately it's a miscarriage. ...Read more

I am 6 weeks 1 day pregnant, i went to the doctor to get an transvaginal ultrasound but there was nothing but a yolk sac (4.5mm). Is this normal?

I am 6 weeks 1 day pregnant, i went to the doctor to get an transvaginal ultrasound but there was nothing but a yolk sac (4.5mm). Is this normal?

Yes it can be: An ultrasound at 6 weeks that shows a yolk sac is pretty good. I have my patients in this situation repeat an ultrasound in a week to see if an embryo can be seen. Since no embryo was seen there is some chance of having a miscarriage. ...Read more

What does it mean if you go for a transvaginal ultrasound the crown to rump length is 6 weeks on target and a week later measuring 6w2d. Is that normal? Positive hb at both ultrasounds.

What does it mean if you  go for a transvaginal ultrasound the crown to rump length is 6 weeks on target and a week later measuring 6w2d. Is that normal? Positive hb at both ultrasounds.

Possibly: The fetal heart tone (fht) should be well above 100 at that stage of pregnancy. If the exam was performed on different machines and by different technologists, there may be some variation in the measurements. The time interval between scans is too short to make meaningful comment about the significance of the difference.Discuss with your obstetrician regarding the need for further testing. ...Read more
