Hello. What does this mean in the transvaginal exam? Walled off rupture ectopic pregnanct?

Ectopics can kill: I am assuming that you are referring to a transvaginal ultrasound. If you (or someone you know) has a positive pregnancy test, and an ultrasound has been done (presumably for pain) and the findings are that of a "walled off ruptured ectopic", then hopefully this person has already been to the or to have this treated.

At my transvaginal u/s on july 29th i was told that i was 7 5/7 by my ob does that mean i conceived 7 5/7 days before july 29th?

NO: Embryological age is different than gestational age. Doctors use gestational age which starts at the 1st day of the last normal menstrual period. Embryological age starts at the time of conception. 7 5/7 gestation means the embryo is 5 5/7. You likely conceived 5 5/7 before july 29th (plus or minus 5 or so days due to the inaccuracy of the us ).You are 2 weeks "gestational age" when you conceive. ...Read more

Repeat level: I trust you are talking about HCG level. In a normal pregnancy HCG values should double in two days. If the rise is less than 50%, it may be due to ectopic pregnancy. You should be under the care of a doctor for the sake of your and your baby's health and you should discuss it with her/him. ...Read more

I am going through fertility treatments so I have had many transvaginal ultrasounds lately. It seems there is always free fluid in the right and left adexa, culdasac, and endocervical fluid; what could this mean?

I am going through fertility treatments so I have had many transvaginal ultrasounds lately. It seems there is always free fluid in the right and left adexa, culdasac, and endocervical  fluid; what could this mean?

Not sure - unusual: There really should not be a lot of free fluid unless it is around the time of ovulation. So the question is whether you had a ruptured cyst or one of the fallopian tubes is full of fluid (hydrosalpinx). A little fluid is normal but anything significant is unusual. If it is in the uterus itself, then a uterine polyp is a possible explanation. ...Read more
