Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a GYN ultrasound?

There are many reasons that ultrasounds can be beneficial outside of pregnancy. If you’re experiencing concerns like abnormal bleeding, cysts, fibroids, or pelvic pain, your gynecologist may recommend further assessment with a high-frequency ultrasound.

Do gynecological ultrasounds hurt?

Ultrasounds can be performed either transabdominally or transvaginally. Some women experience discomfort during a transvaginal ultrasound, so make sure to communicate any pain or discomfort to your technician.

What does a gynecological ultrasound show?

A gynecological ultrasound is an effective way to map your pelvic organs like the uterus, cervix, vagina, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. This can help your gynecologist get a better idea of your anatomy if they believe something may be abnormal during a regular appointment.
