You probably are suffering from chronic appendicitis/ ureteric stone/ PID, for which your doctor may have advised you ultraound abdomen..

There is no contraindication for it during menses.. You can surely get it done now..

Hope this helps you doubts.. Feel free to ask any more query you have..
Wishing you a speedy recovery..
