A transvaginal ultrasound is one of the most common types of ultrasound and has a variety of uses including cancer screening, fertility screening and diagnosis of conditions such as endometriosis and fibroids

There are several conditions that require a transvaginal and/or pelvic ultrasound for diagnosis. Many gynaecological conditions such as PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), fibroids and endometriosis require a transvaginal ultrasound.

This ultrasound is also very helpful for the investigation of:

  • Heavy periods
  • Painful periods
  • Irregular periods
  • Lower abdominal pain

A transvaginal ultrasound is also used to check for ovarian cancer and is a preventative tool in the fight against gynaecological cancers.

When will I know my results?

Your sonographer will usually talk to you during the procedure to let you know what they see. However, the images go to a specialist radiologist for reporting and this can usually take around 24 hours. When we receive the report from the specialist radiologist, one of our GPs will give you a call to talk you through your results and any next steps.

What if I need a referral to a gynaecologist?

This can be easily arranged privately through our fast-track referral system. We can also take your report to your NHS GP to request a referral if you prefer to.

FAQs

Does a transvaginal ultrasound hurt?

Most women who have had sexual intercourse do not experience any pain, as the probe is inserted into the vagina. There can be some discomfort for some women but the investigation is usually very brief and the sonographer highly experienced. 

Will I feel the sound waves from the ultrasound?

No, the only thing you will feel is the probe making contact with your skin.

Do ultrasounds have any side effects from radiation?

No, ultrasounds do not create any radiation that can be harmful.

Will I have to wear a hospital gown?

You will usually have to remove some clothing and depending on the area you are having scanned, you may be given a hospital gown to wear.

Can I ask for a female sonographer?

You absolutely can. This may mean slight less appointment availability but female sonographers are regularly available.
