What would cause bleeding after a transabdominal ultrasound for previa?

See doctor: Did the ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of placenta previa? If so, the bleeding is most likely due to the previa itself since the ultrasound was a transabdominal one and not transvaginal. If you have placenta previa and are having vaginal bleeding, please see or call your doctor immediately, as it may progress to preterm labor, and you will need a c-section and other emergent medical care. ...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

Can a transabdominal ultrasound at 13 weeks be wrong by 2 weeks?

Can a transabdominal ultrasound at 13 weeks be wrong by 2 weeks?

Not likely: Ultrasound dating is quite accurate in the earlier part of pregnancy. While it may be off by 2-3 days it would be highly unlikely to be "wrong" by 2 weeks. Keep in mind that the ultrasound age indicates the number of weeks since the first day of the last menstrual period, not the date of conception. This may explain a two week difference if you arethinking about date of conception. ...Read more

How early can you see a fetal heartbeat on a transabdominal ultrasound?

How early can you see a fetal heartbeat on a transabdominal ultrasound?

6-7 weeks from LMP: Transvaginal ultrasound can detect fetal heartbeat earlier than transabdominal ultrasound (5-6 weeks after lmp). Transabdominal ultrasound varies a bit more primarily due to differences in maternal size. In general, the fetal heartbeat should be visible transabdominally by 7 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. ...Read more

What's the difference between transvaginal & transabdominal ultrasound?

What's the difference between transvaginal & transabdominal ultrasound?

Access point.: Both transabdominal and transvaginal sonogram are useful and may even be complementary in imaging the pregnant uterus or non-pregnant pelvis. Different probes are used for each type and the transvaginal approach is clearly less comfortable, however it has the advantage of improved imaging in obese women, in early pregnancy and in fetal brain lesions in late pregnancy. ...Read more
