Abdominal ultrasounds are generally very effective after 8 weeks gestation.Therefore, if you are having an ultrasound prior to 8 weeks from your last menstrual period, it will most likely be a transvaginal ultrasound.
I was told by the ultrasound technician that my uterus was tilted/tipped/kattywhompkus. I went back to the doc's office after the tech reviewed my ultrasound with the radiologist in the bowels of the hospital somewhere (I did not witness this, I was "toweling off" and getting dressed while she was away). She then said that the "baby measured 6 weeks 5 days" and there "was no fetal heartbeat detected by ultrasound." She went on to add that "the baby stopped developing at 6 weeks 5 days" and that she was "95% sure that the pregnancy was no longer viable." She left my husband and I alone at this time and I completely broke down, he did to in his own way. I am going back in 5 extremely long days to get another vaginal ultrasound and meet with my doctor afterwards. The doctor was not able to find a fetal heartbeat using 4 different handheld dopplers on me so I was whisked away for a transvaginal ultrasound.Transvaginal ultrasounds produce clear images of the fetus and uterus and surrounding structures that help doctors confirm the presence of a pregnancy, establish a pregnancy timeline, and gain insight into the health of the pregnancy.While not all women will have an early pregnancy ultrasound, some are more likely to be referred for one than others.They can rule out problems, such as ectopic pregnancies. The technician will insert a small, lubricated probe into your vagina.
They also show problems with the cervix -- such as "short cervix" -- that raise your risk of early labor. (If it makes you more comfortable, ask if you can do it yourself.) It shouldn't hurt, but you may feel uncomfortable pressure.i had my last ultrasound March 2-13 and it says im already 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant... im very confused with who the father of my child is and it makes me a lot more confuse by the ovulation day.... The vaginal ultrasounds are more accurate then judging by the first day of your last period. my obgyne says that my boyfriend is much possible to be the father of my baby... my boyfriend didnt go inside of me when we had contact last dec 29 but he got inside of me last Jan. The only sure way is to have a DNA test because you were sexually active with 2 different partners in the same 7 day period.But unfortunately it's impossible to pinpoint the actual date of conception , you can get an amniocentesis done, it has risks including a small chance of miscarriage like everything else that has to do with pregnancy but you can get a paternity test done through that... Talk to your doc about it more but if you had sex with both men around the same time a paternity test is the only way to know The vaginal ultrasounds are more accurate then judging by the first day of your last period. im so confused with the ovulation day some ovulation calculator says that i ovulated Jan 3... Hope you get the result you are looking for Sperm can live 5 days inside the female reproductive tract.Many women get a transvaginal ultrasound in their first trimester.At this stage of your pregnancy, they're more accurate than abdominal ultrasounds.With a transvaginal ultrasound, a technician inserts a small probe into your vagina to get a clearer image of your tiny baby.
