Questions about u/s

I am having a pelvic ultrasound tomorrow morning. My last couple periods have been VERY heavy and last month I had to go to ER because I was bleeding alot and had pretty large clots. Also, 7-10 days before my period I have this very strange bloated feeling along with abdominal pain. My grandmother died of ovarian cancer. So, I worry about this. I am 31 and had a baby 13 months ago. Anyway, my period is due Mon or you think this will make it more difficult to see anything on the u/s??

Re: Questions about u/s

Having a period doesn't affect the ultrasound. If you are also having a transvaginal ultrasound (which doesn't hurt, by the way) it might be a little messy, but the probe is covered (of course) with plastic and I'm sure they will give you something extra to lie on.

This is what I was told.

Take care.

Re: Questions about u/s

Hi Cheers44,

I have had a vaginal ultrasound when I was bleeding. They had not problem with it. I would guess that they do them a lot with bleeding, because that is one of the main symptoms in post menopausal women. They will just either put a towel under you or give you one afterwards. I even had a physical with my gyno, when I was bleeding heavily. It does not bother them.

Good Luck.
