Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Ultrasound is just used for monitoring the follicle size and if ovulation is occurring.

There is no harm in not going for ultrasound in your second cycle.

If you will ovulate and you have the timely intercourse then you would conceive.

So the outcome of treatment will not differ with ultrasound tests.

Take care.

Hello there.

Thanks for writing back.

If you do not wish to have midcycle ultrasounds then I must say you should only if you got a pretreatment ultrasound to rule out possibility of ovarian cysts where such treatment are contraindicated.
The other advantage of having the midcyle ultrasound is to time your intercourse and visualize proper growth of follicles which would enhance the positive outcome of your treatment.

Intercourse is advised as per ovulation seen on ultrasounds. However usually intercourse between day 10 to day 16 is done.

To avoid miscarriage, your doctor would prescribe you progesterone supplement and folic acid tablet in the later half of cycle.

This is the importance of following as your doctor says and checking regularly with her when on treatment for pregnancy.

Kindly visit your gynecologist for the same.

Take care.

Thanks for reply,

i got ur advice,but the thing is my family is planning to go out for a trip in next week for 15 days where it will be difficult for me to go for scans.Last time when i used siphene 150mg ,i didn't go for scans due to outdoor works but we are sexually active ,hence conceived but had miscarriage.

So my concern here is to know whether scan is necessary to give birth to healthy baby without miscarriage.If it so,then i plan accordingly.

My doctor is out of station to seek her advice,and she 'll be available only at month ending.So please help me doctor.

Thanks in advance, XXXXXXX

Hello there.

No getting an ultrasound wont prevent the risk of miscarriage.

It would only help you in knowing if you are likely to conceiving by depicting the follicle size and intercourse timing.

To prevent miscarriage, firstly you should avoid physical stress. Long journeys which cause exertion should be avoided.

Secondly you ask your doctor to prescribe you progesterone containing tablets which you have to use in the later half of your cycle.

Thirdly use of folic acid tablet is beneficial when you are trying to conceive and definitely avoids miscarriage.

You need to get the above medication by prescription from a gynecologist.

Take care.

Hello, I m 26 and had a surgical abortion on December 5th 2013, I was 6 weeks pregnant. I had the contraceptive implant fitted at the same time. An ultrasound later that day showed some retained tissue and on the 7th I was given a half dose of the abortion pill to flush the remainder out. I had heavy bleeding and pain for a few days but it settled. However, 5 months down the line I am still having very spotty bleeding, no pain and very light but probably on average 4 days out of 7 every week. I know the implant can cause irregular bleeding but I also notice on a regular basis, tiny scraps of tissue after I pass urine, there is no blood, just a number of pieces of tissue ranging from 2-15mm long. Can you offer any advice? Thank you.
