What is Transvaginal Ultrasound?
It’s a pelvic ultrasound, which is a more efficient way to look at the female reproductive track or the uterus, tubes, ovaries and cervix.

Why is a Transvaginal Ultrasound performed?
A transvaginal ultrasound is performed for many different reasons. It’s used to evaluate abnormal bleeding or abnormal findings on an exam. It can also be used for infertility issues, chronic pelvic pain, or to diagnose an ectopic pregnancy. During pregnancy it’s used to date a first trimester ultrasound and to evaluate bleeding.

What should I expect from a Transvaginal Ultrasound?
You will start with an empty bladder. You will undress from the waist down and then lay on the table. A cover will be placed over the probe or the wand and then inserted into the vagina. A series of pictures or images will be taken. From those images we can determine if there is an abnormality with the uterus, tubes, ovaries, or cervix. The procedure takes about 10 minutes. You will feel some mild pressure but no pain — and the results are immediate.

What are the risks of a Transvaginal Ultrasound?
There is minimal risk with this procedure and no exposure to radiation.

Why would someone need this done? I haven't had a pap in a few years and the last one I had, they scheduled me for an ultrasound but I don't know why. I never got the results because I was too scared as I've had abnormal paps in the past. Now that I'm back on track and not homeless or messed up, I'm scared to even go to a pap for fear of something being horribly wrong.

Had this done today. Haven't had my period since March (today is June 11th) and since pregnancy test are all negative including blood tests, my doctor ordered both abdominal & pelvic ultrasound.. I wasn't told anything after the procedure other than "the results will be sent to your doctor"… The waiting game is torture
