I'm not positive, but I don't think that weight would affect a vaginal ultrasound. the only kind of ultrasound that weight would affect would be abdominal (external).
I agree with Ashelen. I'm not sure how weight would have effect a vaginal ultrasound. Especially if they also gave you pictures of your uterus and there is nothing there.
Thank you both for your answers but this http://journals.lww.com/greenjournal/Fulltext/2004/09000/Accuracy_of_Transvaginal_Ultrasonography_in.23.aspx has me a bit worried :S
that study is not referring to pregnancy but something entirely different, i don't think you have anything to worry about :) you said you bled for a month? you are not pregnant. even IF you were (which i HIGHLY doubt) then your not anymore after bleeding for a month.
lol...I'm still feeling flutters though.
I did pass some rather giant clots too.
I agree with mom2ariana that the study refers to something else...and even if the endometrial thickness could affect early ultrasound results, there would be no hiding a fetus by now..especially if you're far enough to be feeling flutters caused by a fetus. large clots passed during pregnancy are 9 times out of 10 a bad sign and would not generally result in a term pregnancy.
I also wanted to add that after reading up about duphaston, I do not think that the thickness of the endometrium would affect your results...because duphaston is used to regulate endometrium growth and shedding, and is often used to MINIMIZE overgrowth of the lining so it's unlikely that a patient on duphaston would have an endometrium thick enough to hide a pregnancy (especially on vaginal ultrasound) for long, if at all.
if they can clearly see your uterus and it's empty, you are not pregnant. if the image was unclear, fuzzy, or otherwise leaves you in doubt that what they were seeing was in fact the whole picture, request another ultrasound. that's the only thing I can recommend...good luck
I can't anymore. I've already seen two gynecologists and gotten two vaginal ultrasounds a month apart. One at what would have been five months pregnancy and the other last month and two pelvic ultrasounds :S
Because I got a negative HPT in December, negative blood test in January and another negative in March i can't get an ultrasound :S
I dunno what to say then..maybe call your doctor and tell them how concerned you are? Ultrasounds are really accurate, especially if you would have been 5 months at your last one...
By "obese" how much overweight are you meaning? Judging from what you have posted it does NOT sound like you are pregnant. If you were given a good picture of your reproductive organs including the uterus and it showed no fetus then you are not pregnant. If the ultrasound was having trouble due to weight it would also have trouble detecting the uterus and other reproductive organs as well. As for the "flutters" it could be a number of things...gas possibly, or you could have yourself so convinced that there is a possibility of pregnancy that you are imagining these feelings. PLease don't take that the wrong way. Women all over the world have had whats called a hysterical pregnancy. Hopefully you will get some answers soon one way or the other.
Flutterings are most likely bowel movements/gas. That is what baby movements feel like in early pregnancy.
A vaginal sonogram, no matter your weight, would see a fetus. I do not think you are pregnant. Consult a professional for a second opinion but you might just be throwing money away.
Getting your weight under control most likely will help regulate your periods and help you conceive, too. Good luck!
