Pelvic Ultrasound Q&A

What is pelvic ultrasound?

The expert team at Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC offers in-office, state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to ensure you receive optimal care.

It’s also accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Why might I need a pelvic ultrasound?

Your OB/GYN specialist might recommend pelvic ultrasound if you’re pregnant, think you might be pregnant or experience unusual signs or symptoms of a women’s health problem, such as:

  • Heavy uterine bleeding
  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular periods
  • Fibroids
  • Cysts
  • Uterus abnormalities
  • Post-menopausal bleeding
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Infertility

They might use ultrasound to detect the presence or position of an intrauterine device (IUD) or evaluate the health of your fetus during pregnancy.

What is pelvic ultrasound used for?

Your OB/GYN team uses ultrasound to view the position, shape, and size of your ovaries and uterus. They might evaluate the thickness of or detect masses in your uterus or fallopian tubes. 

Your provider may also measure the thickness and length of your cervix, blood flow through pelvic organs, and changes in the shape of your bladder.

What should I expect during an ultrasound?

During a pelvic ultrasound at Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, you can expect the following:

Transvaginal ultrasound

During a transvaginal ultrasound, your OB/GYN specialist places a thin transducer coated with conducting gel through your vagina to view pelvic organs and tissues.

Transabdominal ultrasound

With transabdominal ultrasound, your provider places gel on your abdomen and moves a transducer slowly over the area to view organs inside your pelvis.

What happens after pelvic ultrasound?

Pelvic ultrasound is fast, painless, and noninvasive. There’s no downtime after the procedure, so you can resume your regular routine immediately. 

After your Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, provider evaluates your results, reviews them with you and may recommend specific treatments. Examples include lifestyle changes, mediations, or minimally invasive surgery.
