Transvaginal scan

Hey all,

I have been recently diagnosed with PCOS.

Started Metformin last week. The hospital called me yesterday booking me in for an ultrasound scan, now in the past i have had two of these both of which have been inconclusive as i am a larger lady and carry most of my weight on my tummy area. ( weightloss mission well underway)
Anyway I explained this to the clerk that called and she said that they where going to try to do an ultrasound and if not possible they then would do the transvaginal scan.

I asked if there was a reason for this ie any complications from doing a transvaginal and she said no. I asked therefore if I caould have the transvaginal straight away to save time and she said no. She told me to drink lots of water and booked me in.

I felt a bit annoyed at this and contact the Bupa hospital where I once had a private consulation and hey guess what I am booked in this friday 9.15 for a transvaginal scan which will take approx 10/15 mins and i will be able to chat to the Dr afterwards and get my results there and then to take with me.

I am going to complain to the NHS as I dont understand why i could not have just had the scan there.

So I will be paying £255.50 for this scan on Friday but if it will be carried out in a dignified manner with a consultant who actually looks at you and introduces themselves i would have paid more.

Why is the NHS so poorly managed???

Rant over.

Thanks Hayl x

PS will this scan hurt?????

Hi Haylz,

Thats terrible. I think the NHS say whatever they want coz they know they can get away with it. They have the monopoly because a lot of people cant afford to go private.

I have never had a trans scan thingy, just the regular gel on the belly thing and trying to hold your pee in so that they can get a clear pic of your insides.

I would imagine it wouldnt be sore. Probably just uncomfortable same as a smear. Anyway, there are probably other people that know better than me. I also was diagnosed with PCOS and have 48lbs to lose. How are getting on?
