Prob. Calcification: I don't know of a dystrophic classification. It is probably dystrophic calcification. Sometimes benign uterine tumors called fibroids or leiomyomas grow and then wither. If they wither they may calcify. These are usually benign, but check with your doctor.

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

What do I need to do to have better chances of conceiving? I had an ultrasound on uterus. Perfectly fine.....its just backwards.

Patience: It can take a normal couple up the 18 months to achieve a conception - so in most cases patience and regular sexual relations is all that is required. If you have been trying for over a year and have not conceived then you should see your gynecologist to see if there is a specific problem that needs to be addressed to improve your fertility. When TTC you should be taking folic acid. Good luck.

Based on ultrasound, the uterus is anteverted measuring 5.5 x 3.0 x 3.9cm the endometrial echo measures 0.5 cm in thickness. Is it normal?

Based on ultrasound, the uterus is anteverted measuring 5.5 x 3.0 x 3.9cm the endometrial echo measures 0.5 cm in thickness. Is it normal?

Was this ultrasound: Done for routine pregnancy? IF so, you are probably early on in your pregnancy. If it was done for GYN reasons, e.g. irregular bleeding or untimely bleeding, then it depends on what your normal situation is. Are you on birth control pills or implants? Do you have an IUD or planning on one? These measurements can be normal in the right setting, or not.

Color Flow Doppler: Shows moving blood as various shades of red or blue depending on the speed, quantity & direction of cell (blood) motion relative to the ultrasound probe. In the 2D echo image selected, notice the color bar at the left top indicating speed toward vs. Away. Get & study a copy of the actual video images to better understand. It is your body, your right to a copy of the records & you can understand.

I am 51 yrs old. My doctor found a 5mm fibroid on ultrasound. My uterus is also mildly enlarged. Do I need surgery for this?

I am 51 yrs old. My doctor found a 5mm fibroid on ultrasound. My uterus is also mildly enlarged. Do I need surgery for this?

Fibroids: Uterine fibroids are extremely common. Treatment is based on the size of the fibroid, the location of the fibroid, the symptoms present and the fertility plans of the patient. A 5 millimeter fibroid is very tiny. Typically that would not require treatment but your doctor will need to advise you on your specific case.

Normal: From what you say, this sounds like a normal study. Of course you didn't say why you had the study in the first place. That might change things. Best wishes

On July 22 I had an ultrasound & my uterus measured 10.4x6.7x7.3cm sac size 3.4cm crown-rump length 1.7cm EDD 2/26/16 When did I concieve? Was it before June 11? LMP was May 20 Please help.

Likely before 6/11: Conception takes place about 14 days before the date of the next period that a woman misses. If you were having regular cycles, you likely conceived on or about, June 5, I trust that you are under the care of a doctor for the sake of your and your baby's health. Wish you good health and a healthy baby.

Some free fluid on ultrasound of uterus. Endometrial 8 mm, d&c 4 weeks ago, 8 weeks postpartum. Likelihood of more retained products of conception?

Some free fluid on ultrasound of uterus. Endometrial 8 mm, d&c 4 weeks ago, 8 weeks postpartum. Likelihood of more retained products of conception?

Retained: With an 8mm endometrial stripe and post D&C, I doubt any retained products or placenta. Pay attention to your bleeding though and if any changes notify your physician. Fluid in the endometrial cavity is common after a postpartum D&C. Hope this helps.

7 weeks pp with continuous vaginal bleeding. Ultrasound said uterus contains avascular heterogenous mass with bright echogenic component.?

7 weeks pp with continuous vaginal bleeding. Ultrasound said uterus contains avascular heterogenous mass with bright echogenic component.?

Uterus pp: After 7 weeks pp your uterus should be of normal size. I would definetly be worried about it and would perform an HCG quantitative to make sure its zero. There are serious pathologies that can ocurr pp or after any type of pregnancy. Also placenta might be retained inside the uterus. Please follow up with your doctor.

My doc has recommended an endometrial ablation for heavy bleeding. By exam and ultrasound my uterus is healthy. What tests could show me the cause?

My doc has recommended an endometrial ablation for heavy bleeding. By exam and ultrasound my uterus is healthy. What tests could show me the cause?

Endometrial biopsy: An endometrial biopsy and a thyroid test could be done to look for additional causes of your heavy bleeding. In many cases no cause can be readily identified. An endometrial ablation may solve your bleeding problem even when the cause remains unknown.

P.Amenorrhea, ultrasound:small uterus & ovaries. Gyne didn't talk abt streak gonads? Small breast. Period after estrogen pill. Want to conceive. Help?

You need to see: A reproductive endocrinologist or an endocrinologist very soon for help. Primary amenorrhea is a specialist's area only, though if you had spontaneous periods for 2 years, this is definitely not primary amenorrhea. Make an appointment or get a referral; get the help you need.

What are the indications, signs of a tilted uterus and how can it be corrected? Does ultrasound shows when uterus is tilted?

What are the indications, signs of a tilted uterus and how can it be corrected? Does ultrasound shows when uterus is tilted?

A uterine "tilt": Is relatively common, and usually of no significance. A tilted uterus per se is not an abnormal situation, but a normal anatomic variation. That said, in a minority of cases there may be associated pain with intercourse or menstruation. If that is the case, there are procedures to treat it. Ultrasound is the simplest way to assess the orientation of the uterus.
