Ultrasound Q & A

Arbor OB/GYN

What is an ultrasound?

An ultrasound is a painless test that the doctors at Arbor Obstetrics & Gynecology use on a daily basis to take pictures of your cervix, vulva, uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. The state-of-the-art technology deploys sound waves that computer software converts to images. The pictures help your doctor pinpoint possible problems like fibroids, tumors, ovarian cysts, blockages, and abscesses.

What are fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are non-malignant growths on the wall of your uterus. They can vary dramatically in size and be as small as a grain of sand or as large as a baseball. Fibroids don’t often cause any symptoms, so most women don’t even know they have them until undergoing a routine pelvic exam.

Most fibroids don’t require any treatment, but Arbor Obstetrics & Gynecology offers plenty of options if they cause problems.

What are the symptoms of an ovarian cyst?

Ovarian cysts are fluid-filled sacs on your ovaries, and are quite common. They usually come and go with your menstrual cycle and don’t cause any problems.

Ever so often, a cyst causes pain or won’t go away on its own and requires medical intervention. Symptoms of problematic ovarian cysts are:

  • Pain during your period
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Increased urination
  • Backache
  • Insufficient emptying of your bladder
  • Pain during intercourse

Talk to your doctor at Arbor Obstetrics & Gynecology if you have a cyst that’s giving you trouble. She’ll use an ultrasound to monitor its size, shape, location, and changes.

What’s causing my irregular menstrual bleeding?

If you have too heavy, too light, irregular, or otherwise abnormal menstrual bleeding, your doctor at Arbor Obstetrics & Gynecology uses an ultrasound to view your internal organs and structures to help determine what’s causing it.

Prior to an ultrasound, your doctor performs a thorough pelvic exam to look closely at your female organs. She may also recommend urine and stool samples, as well as blood tests.
