A transvaginal ultrasound(TVS), also known as a pelvic ultrasound, is an imaging procedure that allows fertility experts to inspect the pelvic cavity, such as the cervix, the uterus, the fallopian tubes, and the ovaries.
A transvaginal ultrasound can detect abnormal growths or structures in the pelvic region that could be signs of disease or illness. Additionally, doctors may prescribe transvaginal ultrasounds to confirm pregnancy, examine the ovaries, follicular monitoring and estimate the number of eggs still left in the ovaries (antral follicle count).
Transvaginal ultrasound also helps in
- Confirm pregnancy.
- Identify the patient’s pregnancy stage.
- Monitor the baby’s heartbeat.
- Early pregnancy or miscarriage warning signs.
- Determine whether any conditions will affect the pregnancy, such as a low-lying placenta (placenta previa).
