What Are The Blue Red Spots On A Transvaginal Ultrasound
Doppler: Images of the blood moving in your arteries and veins. ...Read more
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
Blood flow: What you saw was likely the appearance of blood flow within the ovaries on color doppler. This flow is usually depicted on the study with the colors of red and blue. The red generally means the flow is directed towards the transducer (device that the sonographer holds to do the exam) and blue codes for flow away from the transducer. Typically both kinds of flow are seen during the exam. ...Read more

I am 48, perimenopause, and I think I had 1 mid-cycle spot. My dr. Wants a transvaginal ultrasound. Is this necessary?
Yes: Probably. If you end up having a problem with the uterus it is much better to catch it early rather than later. If that's the result of the ultrasound then you will be extremely grateful that it was done. One of the signs of a potential problem is abnormal bleeding in your age group (possibly with some other risk factors). Get it done. ...Read more
Usually blood flow: Most u/s images are not done with the 'doppler' probe turned on and are a 'black and white' image. The doppler allows the detection of movements toward or away from the probe (like blood coming into the area in an atery, or leavbing in a vein) these areas are coded red and blue by the computer processing the signal. ...Read more
Hello I wanted to know why my vaginal wall has red spots on it I'm not sure if it's from the friction after intercourse?
Most likely: If the red spots appeared soon after vaginal intercourse, it might be due to friction to the area. If you see these persist or change in appearance like become more like bumps, these should be examined for any infection and other cysts common in vaginal region and require separate treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to measure close to 3 weeks behind on transvaginal ultrasound? U/s showed fetal pole measuring 6 weeks w/ no heartbeat yet.
Transvaginal USG: Transvaginal ultrasound is most accurate duringvthe first trimester by 5-7 days. If >than 1 week off then your dating may be off because of ovulation etc. Your period also plays a role in this. If your cycles are irregular then ultrasound dates may be off.

Normally: One would see the uterus, ovaries, and whether or not there is excessive fluid in the pelvis. Normal fallopian tubes are not visible. ...Read more
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
No: Probe is lubricated and only inside for a few minutes ...Read more
See below: A transvaginal transducer is, as the name implies, designed to be inserted vaginally allowing much closer access to the uterus and ovaries. The patient is positioned similarly to a pelvic exam (though usually no stirrups). The sonographer gently positions the probe and takes pictures of the uterus and ovaries. Occasionally there may be minimal discomfort, but usually only takes a few minutes. ...Read more
Many Things...: Ultrasound is used for many things related to fertility. Initially it is used to scan for normal anatomy. Later, for example, your doc might do scan every day or so to measure the size of a follicle on your ovary. Its much easier to see your ovaries and uterus with a transvaginal ultrasound compared to an abdominal ultrasound. Its certainly my preference. Best wishes! ...Read more
Usually around: Typically something is showing up around 51/2 to 6 weeks after LMP or 3 1/2-4 weeks post conception. However, this varies so if nothing shows up initially and your hcg levels are still rising make sure a follow up ultrasound is done ...Read more
If I had a transvaginal ultrasound and they said I am 7 weeks and 1 day, does that mean that I conceived 7 wk 1 d ago? Or 2 weeks after that?
Not always: A transvaginal ultrasound will be able to identify hydrosalpinx, which is when the tubes fill up with fluid and get dilated or enlarged. This often happens when there is a blockage. Ultrasound could miss a blockage if the tube is not dilated or only mildly dilated. Hysterosalpingogram (injection of dye into the uterine cavity) can identify blockages even when ultrasound can not. ...Read more
Transvaginal US: If your vagina is too tight to allow passage of the ultrasound probe, it may be necessary to do a transabdominal view of your pelvis. ...Read more
Hi, My ovaries are hurting had a ultrasound and the the transvaginal ultrasound came back normal but im still in pain why?
Source Presumptive: & visualized in mind. Imaging exams do Not show pain or origin. However, ovaries are cystic (eggs develop in & are shed from cysts) & if no cysts (not likely age 19 if menstruating) then unlikely pain from ovaries. Could be related to any of many sources in area, including: small bowel, colon, appendix, bladder, endometriosis, etc. Emotions & past experiences commonly play a big yet hidden role. ...Read more
Transvaginal ultrasound is not designed to detect endocervical cancer. An early lesion may not produce enough structural change to be picked up ultrasound. If there is any reason to suspect endocervical cancer, curettings, or biopsy of the canal should be tested by a pathologist.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
Several inches: This can be a useful medical technique for diagnosis. The probe can penetrate for 3-5 inches but will never be inserted to the point of discomfort. It has become a political issue and may be used as a means to support and anti-abortion agenda - which sensible people consider an invasion of privacy bordering upon rape. ...Read more
