Pain and bloating after a Trans Vaginal Ultrasound



Haven’t posted here in a while as I’ve been doing well for a year now since I’ve started on Noriday (Progesterone Only) Contraceptive Pill. I had a routine internal ultrasound on Wed where she spotted a polyp in my uterus and a 2cm cyst on my ovary. I have had no symptoms the past year although I do a get a period each month on this pill which is painful but not in the way it used to be prior to the pill.

However, shortly after getting the scan I felt I’d been punched in the abdomen and back. My bowel feels blocked and I’ve been passing loose stools. I feel as if I have organs stuck together. I had a Hysteroscopy in 2018 (due to endometrial thickening and bleeding) and I felt the exact same (feeling like my insides were bruised with bloating and bowel issues) for nearly a month and I couldn’t move. In 2011 I had a colonoscopy which also gave me the severe pains and bloating for a month after too.

I’m no doctor but I must have endometriosis or something and have adhesions as I actually don’t know of anyone else who gets these complaints after internals. I haven’t had a relationship in a few years so I’m not able to answer if sex hurts. Doctors keep fobbing me off saying I’ve IBS.

Just wondering if anyone had had similar symptoms after internal exams?

Hiya, sorry to hear you’ve not been feeling well. I had a transvaginal ultrasound in June and I felt similar to you for about a week after. Had really bad cramps and was really sore in my abdomen. Also really bloated. I had really bad heartburn which felt like chest pain. I have endometriosis and the nurse said she had to find my one of my ovaries during the scan as it had hidden behind my bowels! So I think it was partly this poking around that caused the pain. Hope you feel better soon xx
