Ultrasound for Women
Ultrasound is an examination that has a particularly high diagnostic value in relation to the female internal organs. Even a slight deviation in their work can lead to serious consequences up to infertility. In this regard, ultrasound of the internal female organs is recommended, even as a preventive examination. This allows our specialists to detect even the most serious pathologies at an early stage.
Indications for ultrasound of female internal organs
Ultrasound is a simple, informative and completely safe examination technique. That is why this procedure is prescribed in the first place when there are signs of diseases of the female reproductive system. Thus, ultrasound of the internal female organs is necessary when a patient complains of the following symptoms:
- pain or burning feeling in the urethra, including during urination;
- pain of an aching nature in the lower abdomen;
- heavy or inconsistent menstruation;
- menstrual irregularities;
- complete absence of menstruation;
- blood in the urine;
- abnormal vaginal discharge.
Ultrasound is also on the list of examinations for pregnancy planning and post-operative check-ups. This examination can detect such pathologies as uterine myoma, endometriosis and endometriosis polyps, ovarian cysts and many others.
Ultrasounds of internal organs are completely harmless, so there are no contraindications to them. The only restriction is the period of menstruation. Ultrasound is recommended during the first 3-5 days after the end of the menstrual period and no later than day 8-10 of the cycle. During this period, the density of the endometrium is minimal, which allows it to be visualised more accurately. During menstruation, ultrasound is performed only in case of emergency.
If it is a transvaginal ultrasound, i.e. through the vagina, the last meal should be taken 8 hours before the examination. The bowel and bladder must be empty before the procedure. It is equally important to avoid foods that cause gassiness. With the transabdominal method (through the abdominal wall), the bladder should, on the contrary, be full. For this purpose, it is recommended to drink about 1 litre of water half an hour before the examination. This is important to ensure a high informative value of the examination.
During a transabdominal ultrasound, a doctor applies a special gel to the abdomen and then moves the transducer along the abdominal wall. This method of examination is acceptable for carrying out during menstruation. In the case of a transvaginal ultrasound, the transducer is inserted into the vagina, which provides even clearer visualisation of all parts of the area being examined. A special condom is put on the transducer beforehand and conductive gel is applied. There is no pain in either case. Some patients feel only mild discomfort.
Even during the examination process, the specialist can explain to the woman some of the changes he or she has found in the structure of the organs. At the end of the procedure, all patients are given a report describing the results obtained during the examination. Also, if necessary, an image of the area of interest in the female organs is given, both in printed and electronic forms. Ultrasound scans are also available in your personal account on our website and in our mobile app.
