Transvaginal Ultrasound

Philippines
September 27, 2012 1:00am CST
Yesterday, I was able to talk to a colleague of mine who was recently married. She asked if I am already pregnant since I was married months before her. I said No and she asked me if I have already consulted an OB Gyne about it because she has recently visited and have undergone a Transvaginal Ultrasound. She suggested that I would do the same. I have called my health provider and said that the consultation and test are covered if the doctor requires it. I will schedule for a visit this Saturday but honestly, I feel so nervous of what the outcome/result would be. Actually, I am afraid that the doctor would say I have problems down there and I am not capable of having a child. Any thoughts about it?

Hi Paper_Doll! Its normal to be anxious and nervous but really there's nothing to be scared or get worried of. The Ob-gynes are experts in their fields and they will ask for your medical history. Don't be hesitant to tell her everything you feel that the doctor needs to know. And you can also say it;s you first time and really its not painful (at least in my experiences with transvi). Whatever the result is, you really have to face it sooner or later, so why postpone it? Your colleague is right, you need to see one so you can rule out whatever problem there is. And, for every problem, there are solutions to it. So the OB will be there to explain everything to you, the pros and cons. The key is don't be shy or afraid to ask questions. Most OBs are really kind and patient to answer our concerns.

Thank you for your response Ysabel. You really have a point there. I just felt that I have been postponing this thing for quite a while now. I really need to visit the OB gyne to know my real situation and so as to know the solutions for it. I do hope they are kind enough to answer my questions.

I have tried Trans V when for my first month of pregnancy. And I even feel anxious. Its just a fear of the unknown. Well, you just might feel uncomfortable during the procedure. I guess you know how will they do Trans V. You can have your husband with you to give you support.

Thank you for your response. I already have an idea how this is being performed since my colleague has told me a bit about it. I actually went to the OB gyne yesterday after work. I was scheduled to undergo Trans V this morning but I said I have work so they moved it tomorrow morning. I actually went alone and planning to go tomorrow alone as well. I do not really want my husband to be there since I get really emotional every time my OB gyne would mention the word 'infertility'. I wanted to be the first to know if there is anything wrong with me.

actually I also have no idea about this, I am also married and I am not pregnant also so I guess i have to visit a gyne too. I too get scared when to comes to going to a doctor. We are in the same boat and i wish all good happens to us and we have positive results. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

hi Paper--doll do not borrow trouble just get looked at and know yo you are fine and then you can rest comfortably knowing you are healthy .If you do have problems they can be treated and you will be okay again so do no fret it.I advise a woman gyn ob as she is much gentler when examining us in those tender areas. lol and your health provider covers it so go do it.

OMG! I haven't think about that and it was never crossed my mind that an ob gyne could not only be a woman but a man as well. The OB gyne I consulted yesterday is a woman but I learned that she is not the one who would perform the Trans V ultrasound tomorrow. Oh no, I don't think I am still going for it if a man would be there to check on me. I will give the clinic a call to ask about it.
