What Is a Transvaginal Ultrasound?
A transvaginal ultrasound, often referred to as an endo-vaginal ultrasound, is a type of pelvic ultrasound that is used to detect abnormalities in the female reproductive organs. The vagina, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries are among these organs. Traditional abdominal or pelvic ultrasounds, which use a transducer outside the pelvis, are not the same as this type of ultrasound.
Because this is an internal exam designed to offer doctors a very clear look within the vaginal canal, at the internal organs, and at all other locations within the pelvic region, the term "transvaginal" implies "through the vagina."
This method does not necessitate any extra preparation. You may be asked to drink water to fill your bladder before the test. Wear loose, comfy clothing and leave your jewels at home. It's possible that you'll be requested to put on a robe.
