Our practitioner in Rochester may recommend a GYN pelvic ultrasound for you for a variety of reasons. If you have never experienced one before, you may feel stressed out, wondering what to expect. However, once you learn more about pelvic ultrasounds, you will discover that they are nothing to worry about, but are instead designed to help our team more thoroughly diagnose your condition and provide accurate treatment.
GYN pelvic ultrasounds can be used to see many structures within the area. Most of the important parts of the internal female anatomy can be easily visualized with a transabdominal or transvaginal ultrasound. The technician will be able to get pictures of the bladder, uterus, ovaries, cervix, vagina and fallopian tubes.
There are many reasons why our doctor may want to schedule a pelvic ultrasound. If you have been complaining of unexplained pelvic pain or have been having increased bleeding or problems with your menstrual cycle, our doctor may order this ultrasound. It can also be used to confirm the presence of uterine issues, such as anomalies, scars, fibroid masses, polyps and tumors. If you use an IUD, you will need consistent ultrasounds to ensure that the IUD remains in the correct position. Additionally, GYN pelvic ultrasounds are used during pregnancy to check on fetal growth and at any other time to check for pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.
A pelvic ultrasound at our office in Rochester is safe and straightforward. In fact, it is completely non-invasive. Whether you have a transabdominal or transvaginal ultrasound will be up to our practitioner, who will determine the best way to see the internal structures. After your GYN pelvic ultrasound, you will not have to worry about recovery. Because it is non-invasive, there are very few, if any, side effects to consider.
