Pelvic ultrasound

Pelvic Ultrasound

A pelvic ultrasound looks at your uterus , cervix,  ovaries and surrounding areas. 

Transabdominal Ultrasound

An ultrasound probe is placed on your lower abdomen with some ultrasound gel. The uterus and ovaries are examined. 

Transvaginal Ultrasound

A long thin transvaginal ultrasound probe is inserted into the vaginal canal. This  is the preferred method of assessment as it gives a better, clearer “zoomed in” picture as the probe is closer to the uterus and ovaries  than a transabdominal probe.

Do I have to have a transvaginal ultrasound?

You will always be given the choice whether you would like this performed. It will be clearly explained to you and your privacy will always be respected. 

Do I need a full bladder?

If you are happy to have a transvaginal ultrasound there is no need to have a full bladder.
