A pelvic or vaginal ultrasound is the first diagnostic test.
This examination makes it possible to explore the organs and tissues of the pelvic cavity formed by the bladder, the uterus and its cervix, the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, the serous wall, the mucous wall, the endometrium…
A pelvic ultrasound is used to locate the fibroid (s). Following the ultrasound, a report is sent to the gynecologist or doctor who will then discuss with the patient the most suitable therapeutic strategy for her case.
To perform a pelvic ultrasound, the patient must have a full bladder. To do this, it is recommended that she drink about a liter of clear fluid an hour before the exam (and not urinate) so that the bladder fills.
