Transvaginal Ultrasonography

Transvaginal Ultrasonography

Transvaginal ultrasound is a test used to look at a woman’s uterus, ovaries, tubes, cervix and pelvic area. Transvaginal means across or through the vagina. The ultrasound probe will be placed inside the vagina during the test.

How the Test is Performed?

You will lie down on your back on a table with your knees bent. Your feet may be held in stirrups.
The ultrasound technician or doctor will introduce a probe into the vagina. It may be mildly uncomfortable, but will not hurt. The probe is covered with a condom and a gel.
The probe transmits sound waves and records the reflections of those waves off body structures. The ultrasound machine creates an image of the body part.
The image is displayed on the ultrasound machine. In many offices, the patient can see the image also.
The provider will gently move the probe around the area to see the pelvic organs.
In some cases, a special transvaginal ultrasound method called saline infusion sonography (SIS) may be needed to more clearly view the uterus.

What are the risk factors with this procedure?
There are no known risk factors associated with transvaginal ultrasound.
Performing transvaginal ultrasounds on pregnant women is also safe, for both mother and fetus. This is because no radiation is used in this imaging technique.
When the transducer is inserted into your vagina, you’ll feel pressure and in some cases discomfort. The discomfort should be minimal and should go away once the procedure is complete.
If something is extremely uncomfortable during the exam, be sure to let the doctor or technician know.
