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
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
None: The examiner should have an order for the test being performed and should not need anything specific from you other than any pertinent history relating to the reason for the test. If you have had organs removed (ovary, uterus, kidney, gall bladder, etc) the sonographer will want to know. ...Read more
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
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
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
She have been transabdominal ultrasound, thefindings are non-visualized ovaries and having only a size of uterus 1.40cmx1.11cm x w0.88 is this harmful?
Not sure: What symptoms are occurring that required the ultrasound? Was there bleeding, pain or just curious? I wish I could give you a better answer, however, sizing alone without other information to assess the situation is useless. ...Read more

How accurate is a transabdominal ultrasound in assessing an ovarian cyst? Had to stop transvagingal ultrasound, extremely painful
Do I need transvirginal ultrasound, not transabdominal? Have irregular bleeding but it could be caused by pill. How do you know?
Why do you need US?: If you have irregular bleeding caused by pill (birth control pills), that does not usually warrant an ultrasound. Unless there is another reason that you need an ultrasound, then I am not sure that either is necessary. If irregular bleeding is caused by pill, perhaps you need to be off that pill and perhaps try a different BCP. In a nonpregnant woman, a transvaginal US is often needed. ...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

49 yrs f, MRI & ultrasound show 2 small fibroids & cervical polyp. Dr. Sez hvy pain bleeding is caused by hormone flux. Could it b endometriosis?
Can be from hormones: As a woman gets older, the hormone regulation gets out of balance, and can cause these things. This can influence endometrium growth, and thus result in relative endometriosis, and heavy periods. But this should be limited to your cycle. It is when/if you have spotting and discharge between periods that is more cause for concern, as this is the kind that is more associated with abnormal issues. ...Read more
My doc has recommended an endometrial ablation for heavy bleeding. By exam and ultrasound my uterus is healthy. What tests could show me the cause?

Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results
Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is. ...Read more
Hi, is it normal to have continuous bleeding 9 weeks after D&C? Ultrasound showed no retained tissue (only fibroid). HSG levels below 5 since 3 weeks ago. The bleeding has been continuous and ranges from heavy/chunky to light.
A little unusual: It may be due to the fibroid, or just very slow healing, but bleeding for this long after a D&C is unusual. So I would probably check for infection with a cervical culture, to rule out a mild case of endometritis. If you don't have an infection, your doctor may consider a short course of hormones to control the bleeding. ...Read more
I assume you have: Uterine bleeding. The usual cause is a result of irregular ovulation prior to menopause creating more estrogen and bleeding. Do not be afraid. They will want to make sure it's not uterine cancer. It hardly ever is but don't wanna miss it. You may be easily treated by an outpatient endometrial ablation or low dose oral contraceptives. Use iron replacent, your gonna be fine, write back 4 probs. ...Read more

Common finding: Subchorionic hemorrhages are commonly seen in early gestations. As long as they stay small and don't continue to bleed, then you and your baby will be fine. Take it easy and follow the instructions of your OB. Fingers crossed that on your next ultrasound, everything will be right as rain. Good luck to you! ...Read more
4 disorders: An pelvic ultrasound may show 1)a pregnancy that is in the wrong place (ectopic) or that is miscarrying, 2) fibroids (benign growths coming from the wall of the uterus, 3) a thickened lining of the uterine cavity from a polyp or overgrowth of the endometrial cells, 4)ovarian cysts or masses and 5) adenomyosis. ...Read more

Any US this preg?:
Please see your doctor regarding your abdominal pain asap since it concerns you. Do not wait for bleeding. You could have an ectopic pregnancy.
If no prior ultrasound this pregnancy, then early OB ultrasound should be performed now to look for an intrauterine pregnancy versus ectopic. ...Read more
Can late implantation bleeding make measuring from ultrasound 1 - 2 weeks younger than measuring from LMP?
Ultrasound: Implantation bleeding first of all is not a very common event. Ultrasounds by their very nature have a built in error factor depending on when they were preformed of plus or minus days to weeks. They are more accurate early in pregnancy but still are not accurate to the day. So if you are trying to determine paternity, you generally can only do that with blood testing after birth. ...Read more
I got an ultrasound on cd18 due to bleeding. Results=endo 13mm, many small follicles (4-6mm). Confused... What does this mean?
Probably normal: The endometrium can normally be up to about 16 mm premenopausal females, especially in the secretory phase which is when your exam was done. It is also normal to have multiple small follicles. The imaging findings alone are not concerning. However, if you have abnormal bleeding or pain then see a gynecologist who determine next best step to find cause. ...Read more

I'm not sure: I completely understand the question. Where is the bleeding? ...Read more
Does an ultrasound confuse breakthrough bleeding with LMP bleeding? Do ultrasound consider breakthrough bleeding as LMP when determining due date
Ultrasound dates: Bleeding is really immaterial as the ultrasound measures the gestation to determine dates. The ultrasound will measure the gestational sac and the length of the fetal pole and with those measurements calculate a due date. If the fetus is larger it will measure the long bone of the leg, the circumference of the abdomen and the diameter of two points in the head. The three are averaged to get a date ...Read more
I am 8 weeks and 4 days I have been spotting /bleeding for 11 days my ultrasound was at 7 weeks 5 days hb was 150 but my sac is measuring 5 weeks?
At Risk: You are at risk for a miscarriage. The very small sac size along with 11 days of bleeding are rather ominous signs. You should be closely followed to verify that there is still fetal heart activity. You should get another sono asap. If the fetus is dead then you may require a d;c. ...Read more
