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

My wife had a 12 week ultrasound today and everything was normal. She had vaginal bleeding a few hours later. What could cause this?

Soundwaves: Ultrasound simply uses sound waves to generate an image so it would not directly causes bleeding. If this was a transvaginal sonogram then lubricant is applied and any blood in the back of the vagina already might come out and be visualized. You could contact the Obgyn who did the sonogram to see if any abnormalities were seen in the sono that would explain irregular bleeding. ...Read more

Fetal heart beat: You may see the fetal heart beat as early as 6 weeks, but you should see it by 7 1/2 weeks. Your doctor probably says 8 weeks because 1st trimester us can be off a few days. It may be of value to check your Progesterone level as well. Very low levels are associated with non viable gestations. ...Read more

Had a vaginal ultrasound done yesterday, started spotting afterwards, no blood in toilet but light pink when I wipe is that normal?

Ultrasound: I would want to know the reason you had the sonogram. If it was for irregular bleeding or spotting then this is not surprising. Sonograms don't cause spotting but if there was done blood in the back of the vagina then when mixed with the sono gel it would loosen up and come out. ...Read more

Lui?: What's lui? Anyway, at 5-6 weeks menstrual age there is frequently only a yolk sac seen within the gestational sac. On vaginal imaging, fetal heart activity will usually be seen between 6-7 weeks. Try not to get too nervous but do bear in mind that up to 50% of all fertilized eggs fail to advance beyond the first trimester. If fetal heart is seen at 8 weeks there is a 98-99% success probability. ...Read more

Is it normal to not see the fetal pole at 6w2d in a vaginal ultrasound? There's a healthy yolk sac but we wouldn't find the baby.

Fetal pole: 6 weeks is then pivotal point. Usually we do see a pole at 6 weeks but there isn't one seen, a repeat u/s in 1 weeks would certainly solve the question. It's a horrible emotional place to be but 1 more week will solve it most likely. ...Read more
