Re: why do intestines show on ovaries on an ultrasound

Hello, it is common not to see an ovary clearly on ultrasound, especially if you just have an abdominal scan and not a vaginal one as well.( I had both and one of my ovaries didnt show up well either!) A scan looks at how sound waves pass through tissue- often other structures such as intestines, or in my case fibroids, get in the way and cause a fuzzy scan. This does not mean that there is anything wrong- its just that the ultrasound scan didnt show everything clearly. Why dont you go back to your doctor and ask his to explain the results more clearly, as you really shouldnt be worried. All the best, Angela
