Transvaginal ultrasound for Endo
Hi Doc

How good is this transvaginal ultrasound in detecting endometriosis? 2 years back my Gynae suspected i had endo, he did a laporoscopy & it didn't show anything. I'm still suffering from the same pain & u its becoming worse. I was referred to a Surgeon & all X-Rays came negative. So the problem boils back to the Uterus.
I've been doing some research on the internet & i came across this Transvaginal ultrasound. I want to ask my Gynae to try it out, but i don't want to go there for nothing, which seems to be the issue now.
