Ultrasound

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of internal organs on a monitor. This test helps a doctor monitor a patient’s ovulation, diagnose conditions such as pelvic masses and early pregnancy and examine the thickness and pattern of the uterine lining. Ultrasound is also used to monitor cycles during which a patient is taking drugs to stimulate the follicles in the ovaries to produce multiple eggs. It is also used during In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to help the doctor guide a needle into the follicles to retrieve eggs.

What to Expect

Interpreting Results

Should the doctor notice any abnormalities, such as fibroids or unusual growths, he or she may order additional testing or recommend a procedure for addressing these conditions, before moving forward with fertility treatment. But in most cases, this test simply confirms that conditions are healthy, assuring the patient and doctor that steps toward treatment can continue.
