Sonographers are spoiling my chances?

So I’m in the middle of stims of my first round of IVF. I’m on the standard long protocol and currently being monitored every other day with ultrasounds and blood tests.

Last June I had an open myomectomy to remove multiple large fibroids. Which I told my fertility clinic about at my consultation. At my first scan at the fertility clinic the sonographer said the lining of my womb was fine apart from a little adenomyosis, ovaries looked good too. Which was fabulous, great results considering everything.

Fast forward to my second ultrasound, a different sonographer said my ovary looks a little polycystic, I thought err since when did this occur?! 🤷🏾‍♀️

Now to my third ultrasound Monday gone, another sonographer noticed that I have scare tissue in the cavity of my womb. I never said a word. I’m thinking why the hell wasnt these things picked up at the first ultrasound sound?

Your opinions please, how mad? Ok scrap that. How concerned should I be about the skills of the sonographers at this clinic?... my chances are looking much slimmer than what I first thought. What would you do in this situation?

Im not happy at all. I have another ultrasound appointment today and I’m wondering what they’ll find next.

I’m starting to think this was a huge waste of time and money.

Sorry for the long rant!

Hi. Just wondered if they are scanning you at different times of the cycle and that’s why it’s different information?

Also which sonographer was more experienced/senior?

I’d be annoyed aswell but ask the questions at the next appointment and hopefully get a true picture of what’s going on.

I’ve had scans for endo where one persons said I’ve got a 5cm mass and another has seen nothing. I guess it’s open to interpretation of the sonographer and hopefully you can get someone who has a lot of experience to give you the answers x


Hi Emmab178,

Yes they are scanning me at different times of my cycle. I’ll ask how this effects what they see.

The last sonographer I saw was a mature lady so it’s possible that she has more experience. I don’t see the same person at these scans, I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.

I have an appointment this morning so I’ll be more inquisitive.

Thank you x
