A gynaecological transvaginal ultrasound is a scan that looks at your reproductive organs and the surrounding pelvic area. At The Portland Manchester we can use it to examine your uterus, womb lining also called the endometrial cavity, ovaries and follicles. During the ultrasound scan we can look for any abnormal appearances that may account for any specific symptoms you’ve been experiencing.
Please note that our Sonographer is responsible for providing a detailed ultrasound report and images but is not responsible for the interpretation of ultrasound findings. These findings are to be discussed with your referring physician.
Our Sonographers may ask questions about your fertility treatment and current treatment plan to assist with performing an ultrasound scan and report best suited to your needs.
We understand this information can be sensitive in nature. Please let your Sonographer know if you would prefer not to discuss these matters.
Gynaecological ultrasound scans are routinely performed using a transvaginal probe technique. This technique is used to view the pelvic anatomy optimally, as the ultrasound probe can transmit safe ultrasound waves more directly to the pelvic area.
There is no clinical risk associated with performing a transvaginal ultrasound scan. Transvaginal ultrasound scans can safely be performed during menstruation and episodes of vaginal bleeding.
It is important that you understand the procedure that is associated with this examination.

During a gynaecological ultrasound scan, our sonographer will examine the shape and condition of your whole reproductive system.

If you are a virgin (Virgo intacta; hymen intact), guidance determines that transvaginal ultrasound scans are clinically contraindicated. If you have discussed this concern with your referrer and wish to proceed with a transvaginal ultrasound scan, this type of examination can be performed.
