Transvaginal Ultrasound And Miscarriage Cause
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
Strong hb 142 at 7 weeks on transvaginal ultrasound. Does risk of miscarriage drop now? Had recent loss and am nervous. Thank you in advance.
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 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
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?
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.
Of What?: Of a tight, intact hymen? Yes it can. The vagina? If the examiner suddenly thought she or he was churning butter, or had a severe seizure during the exam then it might happen but I never saw such an occurrence. ...Read more
I had a transvaginal ultrasound and it was painful... What could be the cause? It hurt while checking my left ovary
Variety of things: A variety of things could cause it. Vaginal dryness, lack of lubricant on the sonogram, placing too much pressure on the probe, a problem in the bladder, rectum, uterus or ovaries are all a few of the possibilities. Finding out if anything abnormal was found on the sonogram is the next step. ...Read more
I was told that it is normal for a transvaginal ultrasound to cause light spotting, even two or three days after the procedure. Why does this happen?
Think of dental work:
Vaginal mucosal tissue is similar to that within your mouth -- so, think of what might happen after a dentist works. Occasionally there is some blood that you spit out.
Probably there won't be any spotting, but there is the chance with a probe's manipulating against this soft tissue of a minor bleed. ...Read more
If done improperly, can a Transvaginal Ultrasound cause a perforation which could result in free-air in the abdomen?
What could cause a "fullness" in the right ovary region. Was told this during pap. Will have a transvaginal ultrasound later this month.?
Usually cyclic cyst: The most common reason for fullness in the right adnexae for someone your age would be a cyclic cyst that is part of your menstrual cycle. These cyst usually rupture when the ovary releases an egg in mid cycle. Other things to consider are infection, endometriosis, ectopic pregnancy, and tumor. If you are otherwise free of symptoms if might well disappear by the time you get the sono. ...Read more
How long can a transvaginal ultrasound wand be in a vagina before it causes cavitation or heating?
See answer: As a diagnostic procedure, ultrasound is a safe and painless procedure that uses sound waves to "see" inside your body and create detailed images. The wand, aka "transducer", used for diagnostic purposes does not emit heat or cause cavitation. When used as a therapeutic or treatment procedure, such as with liposuction, more powerful transducers are used which do emit heat and can cause cavitation. ...Read more
Can transvaginal ultrasound cause Hiv or any other infections if the ultrasound procedure is done without using a condom?
Possible: It is possible even if risk is indeed very low because of the use of a disinfecting wipe and a condom. But risk exists since studies show that condom + wipes is not sufficient. That is why CDC, FDA, AIUM, etc. Insist that you must do a [HLD] High-Level Disinfection (chemical soaking) of these probes between patients even if using a probe cover. AIUM does not not give accreditation without HLD. ...Read more

Can a transvaginal ultrasound cause cancer from the cavitation and heating it can cause? Is it dangerous to do one 4.5 weeks after giving birth?
No: There is no link whatsoever to ultrasound and pelvic organ prolapse. ...Read more
No it does not: It is a common procedure and does not cause miscarriage. ...Read more
Are vaginal ultrasounds safe during early pregnancy? Can they cause miscarriage? Had mild cramping for a day after getting one done and it scared me.
I had a transvaginal ultrasound on 14 sept 2012. The doctor told me I am 7 weeks 1 d. Based off of this when is my most likely date of conception?
Part of complete u/s: Routine female pelvic ultrasound has two portions to the exam. The exam starts with a full bladder and scanning with a fan shaped ultrasound (u/s) probe over the lower abdomen and pubic area. Then the pt is asked to empty her bladder and then a thin long u/s probe is inserted into the vagina for additional pictures. This portion is important and significantly improves parts of the evaluation. ...Read more
Ultrasound: An ultrasound is an imaging study in which a probe emits and receives sound waves which rebound off of internal organs in order to visualize them. For a transvaginal ultrasound a specially designed probe is lubricated and placed into the vagina in order to better visualize pelvic organs/ structures. ...Read more
Yes: The earlier ultrasounds are more accurate than the later ones. 7 weeks is probably correct. ...Read more
It depends: Transvag us exam is an excellent tool to examine pelvic and lower abdonimal organs. Depends on the target of interest (ovary, appendix...) and the disease being investigated (mass, abscess...) it can at times be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid of the instrument. If you use tampon, you can handle the probe. ...Read more
