Question: Would a sonographer know if my lmp had been implantation. And if so would they have changed my due date. Ultrasound is dating back to lmp.
Answered by Dr. S Patra 30 minutes later
Implantation occurs 7-9 days after ovulation and at that time i.e on D21-D23 of cycle,the predominant morphologic feature is edema of the endometrial stroma.It can be seen/evaluated on USG/TVS (Trans Vaginal Sonography) scan.So in this state, sonographer may know whether implantation occurs or not in the last cycle by complete follow through the sonography/report.
Your due date will be as usual and not changed if implantation does not take place.
For evaluation of implantation,it is needed to do USG/TVS scan back to LMP as on D21-D23 of cycle. Consult with your sonologist.
TVS scan gives 2 wk earlier details about Feto Placental Profile (FPP) than USG scan if you have conceived.Gestational sac is viewed on 4wks with TVS scan.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wish your better health.

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,
