Does your hymen tear from getting a vaginal ultrasound?

Does your hymen tear from getting a vaginal ultrasound?

Unlikely: The normal hymen is a circle of elastic tissue around the vagina opening, like a stretchy bracelet or collar. It's not a solid layer of skin except for the rare condition of imperforate hymen where there's no opening and no way for menstrual blood to leave the body. A normal hymen stretches and doesn't usually tear during a vaginal ultrasound ...Read more

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

Hey I had an ultrasound a couple weeks ago and when she put it in it was very bad pain. I am a virgin. Could she have broke my hymen?

Ultrasound exam: What were you being examined for and by whom? An ultrasound probe is about the size of a package of cigarettes and is gently rubbed over your abdomen if your uterus (womb) is being examined. That would not affect your hymen. ...Read more

Can ultrasound tests show the doctor if a woman is virgin? I have heard that the answer is yes, since it depends on having an intact hymen or not...

No: An ultrasound can not show such a thing. If the hymen is intact this can be seen during a physical exam. The problem is many virgins do not have an intact hymen. Physical activity can open it. If a doctor wanted to know if a patient was a virgin he or she would simply ask them. ...Read more

I have been spotting for 5 days after my vaginal ultrasound.isthis normal when isit going to stop spotting?

Could be: An irregular period at that level of bleeding. Pain/fever/clots would be BAD sign. And... without an exam, I can only give general information, and whatever reason you got the ultrasound FOR changes the situation drastically.

From a conception (sex)from December 31 is it possible that on Feb. 13 the trans vaginal ultrasound not to see a sac?

Probably not: A transvaginal sonogram should be able to see a gestational sac by 6 weeks of pregnancy. What you describe seems unlikely but without knowing what the future sonograms showed or when your due date was it is hard to comment further ...Read more

Lmp and early vaginal ultrasound matched @ 6 weeks 5 days matched exactly. Does that mean I ovulated on cd14? 28 day cycles!

Lmp and early vaginal ultrasound matched @ 6 weeks 5 days matched exactly. Does that mean I ovulated on cd14? 28 day cycles!

Likely so, but...: Life is not exact, no matter what the numbers show. A woman with 28-day cycles ovulates on day 14, but that means the same thing as ovulating on day 13 or 15. Dates and numbers are estimates, not to be thought of as "exact". For example, the due date is usually not the day the baby gets born, because babies are also born a day or a few days sooner or later. ...Read more

It depends on LMP: The ultrasound measurement will be reported in gestational week from the day of conception. When conception took place is impossible to tell by the information provided. It is on or around the ovulation day that usually falls on the middle of the period.

My 13 year old daughter is having a vaginal ultrasound and she is very nervous will I be able to be with her and what should I tell her to expect?

Intravaginal U/S: Chances are she will have a female technician. You will be with her in the room while the study is performed. A small instrument covered by plastic changed between patients will be inserted with lubrication jelly that is warmed ahead of time. It may not be comfortable and it may be embarrassing, but it should not be painful. I hope this helps somewhat. Rare for a 13-year old to have this study. ...Read more

According to IUI I should be 6.5 weeks along but vaginal ultrasound measured sac at 5 w 1 d....confused?

Repeat US in 1 week: Ultrasound assessment at this early stage is accurate in defining several important things, including fetal pole, fetal cardiac activity, heart rate, the presents of a yolk sac, and the shape of the gestational sac that contains the fetus. It can be somewhat inaccurate for the gestational age. A follow up ultrasound in 1-2 weeks and checking blood b-hcg levels would help. ...Read more
