Failure to Conceive
An gynecological ultrasound scan is a good first step to investigating why you’re not getting pregnant which is why pregnancy scans are essential. When it is performed at the right time in the menstrual cycle it can check for abnormalities in the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. It also provides information about the function of the ovaries and womb lining (endometrium).
If the problem is due to a failure to ovulate regularly, medication such as Clomid can help stimulate the ovaries.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
Heavy Periods (Menorrhagia)
Ultrasound can help investigation into the cause of heavy periods as it can detect fibroids in the uterus, polyps or thickened womb lining.
Ultrasound can help indicate not just that a cyst exists, but also the type of the cyst. Many common cysts are completely benign – cancerous cysts are detected only occasionally. For those with a family history of ovarian cancer, pelvic ultrasound can be a useful diagnostic tool in addition to ovarian cancer screening. Should you wish to see a gynaecologist or get a blood test for cancer markers, we can help organise that.
Gynaecological ultrasound scan can be very helpful when looking into pelvic problems. It can help detect uterine fibroids, endometriosis within the ovary and swelling of the ovary due to infection or fluid collection (hydrosalpinges).
A normal ultrasound result means it’s unlikely there is a significant underlying problem causing the pain. If you are experiencing issues like those described above, please call us now for a free consultation.
Bleeding After Menopause
Ultrasound can be used to measure the lining of the womb (endometrium). If the lining is thicker than normal, further investigation may be required in the form of hysteroscopy and biopsy.
Less commonly, bleeding may be as a result of ovarian cysts or disease of the fallopian tubes which can be detected via ultrasound.
