This is a method of looking at your womb and ovaries using sound waves. During the scan the size and lining of the womb and the ovaries are checked. This investigation can tell us if there is any enlargement or disturbance of the lining of your womb (the source of your bleeding)


Sometimes during the ultrasound scan there could a need to visualise the lining of the womb more clearly. This is achieved by inserting a very fine catheter through the neck of the womb and the instillation of a small amount of fluid into the uterus whilst having the internal scan. This procedure will allow better images of the lining of the womb to be obtained and a more accurate diagnosis of the problem. It is a well-tolerated procedure that can be performed in the clinic during the same consultation.
