Gynaecological/Pelvic Scan

One of our many gynaecological services at the Merrylands location is our pelvic scan. This looks at your uterus and ovaries to help investigate the cause of pain or abnormal bleeding. This can be done either by taking images through your stomach, but in sexually active women, a transvaginal scan can be done to get a high-quality image. A Merrylands transvaginal scan involves placing a sterilised ultrasound probe, covered in a disposable sheath inside the vagina.

If the lining cannot be seen in the transvaginal scan, then a saline sonogram (sonohysterogram) may be used.

What Should I Know Before My Appointment?

Before you go for your Merrylands Pelvic Scan, it’s important to remember:

  • Try to book this scan in the first half of your menstrual cycle
  • Drinking prior to the scan is not generally necessary
  • Transvaginal scan is not necessary if you are not sexually active or if your doctor has requested us not to do it
  • If you specifically want a female to do your examination, let us know at the time of your booking
Sonohysterogram Merrylands

Sonohysterogram

A Merrylands Sonohysterogram is similar to a transvaginal scan but is used to examine the endometrial lining of the womb.

This process is similar to a pap smear where the doctor passes a fine tube and saline solution into the cervix. When this happens, the internal wall of the womb slightly separates, making it easier to see polyps and fibroids which may be growing. It may also help to identify any unusual womb shapes that may increase the risk of pregnancy complications and miscarriages in the future.

Tubal Patency Scan

If a woman is having problems falling pregnant, a tubal patency scan Merrylands is used in combination with an ovulation test and a sperm analysis can be done to determine what the causes of infertility are, if any.

Similar to a pap smear, a fine plastic tube is passed through the cervix and scanned with a sterile probe covered in a disposable sheath. After, a fluid solution is injected through the plastic tube. The doctor will then monitor the fluid in the ultrasound to see if there is any blockages.

What Should I Know Before My Appointment?

Before you go for your Merrylands Tubal Patency Scan, it’s important to remember:

  • Arrange help or time off work on the day of your test
  • We recommend taking Naprogesic or Ponstan tablets 1 hour before the scan as it can cause period-like pains
  • Book your test within 1 week of finishing your period
Ovarian Cancer Screening gynaecological services Merrylands

Ovarian Cancer Screening

An ovarian cancer screening at the Merrylands location is beneficial for women over the age of 50 who have a family history of breast and ovarian cancer to check for suspicious ovarian cysts. A transvaginal ultrasound combined with a doctor’s clinical assessment and blood tests can be used to track women at risk of ovarian cancer.

During the ultrasound, we can identify ovarian cysts that are a low chance of being cancerous, those that present a moderate risk and those that are high risk. Testing is recommended every year for high-risk women.

Endometriosis Screening

Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 young women and is caused by the growth of endometrial glands outside of the womb, usually on or in ovaries, the back of the uterus on the pelvic walls and on the bowel. A Merrylands endometriosis screening can help see the endometriotic cysts in the ovaries or look for deep infiltrative endometriosis.

Mirena IUCD Merrylands

Mirena IUCD

A Mirena IUCD is a contraceptive device that has a slow-release form of the progesterone hormone. It causes a thinning of the lining in the womb, reducing the number of periods and making it difficult to fall pregnant. One of our Mirena IUCD Merrylands Specialists is able to perform the procedure or replace your current Mirena IUCD.

Our team of highly trained and qualified staff are able to help you with any Gynaecology Services Merrylands you may need. Our Parramatta office is located at Level 4, 17 Macquarie Street Parramatta and is open Monday to Friday. Make an appointment with our team today!
