Ultrasound - Pelvic - via Vagina

This test uses sound waves from a probe inserted in the vagina to create images of the female reproductive organs.

This test uses sound waves from a probe inserted in the vagina to create images of the female reproductive organs.

A transvaginal ultrasound uses sound waves sent by a probe inserted in your vagina to create detailed images of the female reproductive organs (uterus, ovaries, tubes, cervix and vagina). Your healthcare provider may order this for a number of reasons, including exploring abnormal bleeding, menstrual problems, infertility or pain in the lower abdomen.

Your healthcare provider can tell you how to prepare.

  • You may want to wear a loose two-piece outfit so you can remove just the bottom for the exam.
  • Only the end of the probe will be put into the vagina.
  • The test usually takes about 30 minutes.
  • The costs for this test include the charge for the test (facility charge) and physician charges (for performing or interpreting the test). You may get separate bills from the facility and the physician's office.

What should I ask my healthcare provider before having this test?

  • Is there any special preparation for the test? (If so, get clear instructions on what you need to do.)
  • Why are you ordering this test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, why do I need the test?
