An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the patient’s internal organs. An ultrasound is an important tool to assist the physician in monitoring the patients’ ovulation, diagnosing uterine pathology (fibroids, polyps, uterine malformations) or ovarian cysts, assessment of the ovarian follicle count (marker for one’s ovarian reserve), and monitoring of early pregnancy).
During treatment, our sonographers use a transvaginal (internal) ultrasound to monitor your cycle if you are taking medications to stimulate the follicles in your ovaries to produce multiple eggs. Using the ultrasound, your physician can also examine the thickness and pattern of your uterine lining. A transvaginal ultrasound is a probe that is inserted into the vagina covered with lubricant and a condom. The ultrasonographer will be able to see the uterus, ovaries, and sometimes the fallopian tubes. The procedure is not painful, and many women prefer it to an abdominal ultrasound for which the bladder must be full.
