Uncovering your pelvic health through Ultrasound!

Ultrasounds are crucial in identifying any concern affecting your reproductive well-being. Whether seeking insights into your menstrual cycle, evaluating your reproductive organs, or exploring potential concerns, our advanced ultrasound technology offers a peek into your body’s intricacies. We empower you with the information necessary to make informed decisions about your reproductive health. Our approach to pelvic ultrasounds encompasses two distinct methods:

Transabdominal Method - Gaining Insights Through the Abdomen

The transabdominal method involves placing a specialized transducer on the abdomen. This transducer emits sound waves, penetrating the skin and tissue to capture detailed images of your pelvic organs.

A conductive gel is applied, ensuring optimal sound wave transmission. This method is particularly effective for capturing an overall view of the pelvic region.

Transvaginal Method - A Closer Examination from Within

The transvaginal approach takes us one step closer to your pelvic health. A slim and elongated transducer, enveloped in a protective sheath, is gently inserted into the vagina. The transducer, covered in conducting gel, captures high-resolution images of your reproductive organs and surrounding structures. The proximity of this method allows for more intricate details to be revealed, making it particularly valuable for specific diagnostic purposes.

How to Prepare for Your Pelvic Ultrasound?

Preparing for a pelvic ultrasound is simple, ensuring you have the most effective and comfortable experience. Before the test, make sure you are properly hydrated. At least one hour before your appointment, consume a minimum of 24 ounces of clear fluids. Water, herbal tea, and clear fruit juices are good options. This helps in ensuring a clearer image during the Ultrasound. However, avoid excessive fluid intake, as it might lead to discomfort. Avoid urinating before the test, as It’s important not to empty your bladder until after the Ultrasound, especially for a transabdominal ultrasound. 


A partially full bladder provides a better acoustic window for capturing images of your pelvic organs. For most pelvic ultrasounds, no fasting or sedation is required. However, if your Ultrasound is part of another procedure that involves anesthesia, follow the instructions given by your doctor. If you’re having a transvaginal ultrasound, empty your bladder right before the procedure. This enhances comfort during the examination.

At Balaji Horizon, we discuss the procedure with you, answering any questions you might have. Feel free to inquire about the process, its duration, and what to expect during and after the Ultrasound.

Why might a pelvic ultrasound be recommended?

Pelvic Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that provides a wealth of information, aiding in the measurement, evaluation, and diagnosis of various conditions.

Assessment of Pelvic Organs: Size, Shape, and Position

Pelvic Ultrasound goes beyond the surface, offering insights into the anatomy of the uterus and ovaries.

Exploring Tissue Characteristics and Fluid Presence

The Ultrasound's echogenicity reveals tissue density, highlighting the presence of fluids or masses within the endometrium, myometrium, fallopian tubes, and even the bladder.

Measuring Cervical Length and Thickness

The length and thickness of the cervix can be measured accurately. Changes in these parameters signal specific conditions or provide insights into your reproductive health.

Detecting Changes in Bladder Shape

The shape of the bladder can be monitored for any changes that might indicate underlying issues.

Visualizing Blood Flow

Pelvic Ultrasound extends its reach to assessing blood flow through pelvic organs, enhancing our understanding of circulation within the reproductive system.

Diagnosis and Monitoring

Pelvic Ultrasound serves as an invaluable diagnostic tool for a variety of conditions, such as Uterine Anomalies, Growth Assessment, Contraceptive Device Placement, Infection and Inflammation, Postmenopausal Bleeding, Fertility Evaluation, Ectopic Pregnancy Detection, and Pregnancy Monitoring.

Assisting with Procedures

Beyond diagnosis, pelvic Ultrasound assists in procedures like endometrial biopsy and sonohysterography. The latter involves filling the uterus with fluid for enhanced imaging.
