Ultrasounds are an excellent tool to help your caregiver evaluate the pelvic anatomy to agree that cannot be assessed by an exam alone. While they are a key part of monitoring your pregnancy, ultrasounds are also helpful in the evaluation of gynecologic problems. You may have in-office ultrasounds when ordered by your caregiver, whether you are pregnant or not. At Clinic Sofia, your doctors are AIUM certified, which means they are able to interpret your ultrasound images and discuss your results immediately after your ultrasound.


In a normal healthy pregnancy, the average person has two ultrasounds. The first time you might have an ultrasound is around weeks 7 – 12. This helps to establish if there will be just one baby (or more!), when the estimated due date will be, and if the pregnancy is developing appropriately. Later in the pregnancy, around week 20, you will have an ultrasound to thoroughly evaluate the growth and development of the baby. You’ll be able to see your baby’s movement and heartbeat as well, and you can find out the sex of the baby if you haven’t already. Depending on your unique circumstances, your caregiver may order additional ultrasounds to monitor the growth and anatomy of your baby or check on the baby’s wellbeing.


When a patient might have pain or other gynecological problems, ultrasound can diagnose conditions such as ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, or uterine polyps. A special type of ultrasound during which saline is placed in the uterus can help us evaluate for any abnormalities to the inside cavity of your uterus. Your caregiver will analyze these images and suggest treatment options for you.
