Ultrasound Q & A
What is an ultrasound?
An ultrasound uses sound waves to create pictures of your internal organs or unborn baby. The procedure uses no radiation, so it’s completely safe.
An ultrasound is a routine screening test, but your doctor may recommend one if you have symptoms that suggest an ovarian cyst or uterine fibroids.
The doctors use ultrasound to assess your:
- Fallopian tubes
Diagnostic ultrasounds may be performed transabdominally — in which the wand glides over your belly and pelvic region — or transvaginally — during which the wand is inserted into your vagina to get a better look at your uterus.
What symptoms indicate the need for a gynecological ultrasound?
If you have symptoms such as severe bloating, pelvic pain, or pain during intercourse, your doctor may order an ultrasound. You may also need an ultrasound in the following cases:
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Irregular menses
- Suspected ovarian or uterine cancer
- For examination of the endometrium, or uterine lining
If the doctors detect unusual tissue during a pelvic exam, they may also order an ultrasound to get a better look.
