Get an ultrasound on your first appointment specially for pregnant patients
If you are experiencing abdominal or pelvic pain, uncontrollable vaginal bleeding, or other problems in your reproductive organs or pregnancy, you may need a pelvic ultrasound. Dr. Madhav has the technology and experience to provide in-office pelvic ultrasounds. Learn more about this technique prior to your next appointment.
A pelvic ultrasound provides an internal image of your reproductive organs without exposing you to harmful x-rays or radiation. The procedure for a pelvic ultrasound is painless and noninvasive, meaning that you do not need anesthesia or surgery in order to complete the imaging. During the exam your OBGYN gets a visualization of your pelvic structures and organs (and your baby in case you are pregnant), which include your ovaries, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, and vagina. The ultrasound is a quick procedure that provides your doctor with a detailed visual of your internal system.
As a pelvic ultrasound is able to provide a visual image of your organs within your pelvis it is a great tool for gynecological issues. For women who are suffering from abnormal vaginal bleeding, heavy pain during periods, or severe pelvic pain, a pelvic ultrasound is ideal. It allows the OBGYN to get a detailed look without performing exploratory surgery. By getting a pelvic ultrasound of your reproductive organs, Dr. Madhav can have a more information to determine a diagnosis and treatment for your gynecological concerns.
If you are going to Dr. Madhav for a pelvic ultrasound you will need to follow certain precautions to ensure the viability of the screening. Dr. Madhav’s staff will provide you with detailed instructions prior to your pelvic ultrasound. However, in general you will not eat anything heavy before your exam. You will be required to drink approximately 40 ounces of water within an hour prior to your appointment. Having a full bladder displaces the loops of intestine away from your reproductive organs and helps to make them more visible during the ultrasound. You’ll likely be asked not to use the restroom until after your exam is complete.
If Dr. Madhav suspects that you are pregnant, it is very important to find out if the pregnancy is in the right place in the uterus and to rule out ectopic pregnancy which can be a life threatening condition. The ultrasound helps in determining early pregnancy location and can be a life saving examination.
