A transvaginal ultrasound is a medical imaging procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of the pelvic organs, including the uterus, ovaries, and cervix. It involves inserting a specially designed ultrasound probe into the vagina for a close-up view.
Transvaginal ultrasound is often used to diagnose and monitor conditions related to the female reproductive system, such as infertility, pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, ovarian cysts, and early pregnancy evaluation.
Most women do not find these ultrasounds painful. While there may be some discomfort due to the probe’s insertion, the procedure is typically well-tolerated.
This ultrasound provides a closer and more detailed view of the pelvic organs compared to a regular pelvic ultrasound, which is performed externally on the abdomen.
Depending on the specific exam, you may be asked to have a full bladder or an empty bladder before the procedure. It’s essential to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions for preparation.
The procedure typically takes about 15-30 minutes, but the duration may vary depending on the specific goals of the examination.
While transvaginal ultrasounds are primarily used for gynaecological and obstetric purposes, they can sometimes provide useful information about nearby structures and conditions.
You will need a referral from your GP Consultant to then be able to book an appointment for a transvaginal ultrasound.
