Hey. I was booked in for this scan a while ago, before PG, to check for cysts. Is it still safe to do? Trying to contact the hospital atm but unfortunately i dont have the privacy to make the call... Im at work and its too early to inform them.
Your very early, don't dream of telling work yet. I'm not one of those crazy-wait-till-it's-allowed-to-tell, tell when you want, but it's defo too early now. Re scan, it's the exact same as an ultrasound on your belly. Most pregnancy ultrasounds before 12 weeks will be transvaginal.
Transvaginal US in early pregnancy are completely safe - I had three sub 12 weeks PG to monitor the embryo/pregnancy development. I would just make sure you tell them when you go in s the aren't alarmed if they see something attached to your uterus wall! Also as it may well affect the course of treatment offered re cyst.
3w+6 would be approx 10dpo so I think your dates may be wrong? I wouldn't think you would know you are pregnant any earlier than that yet you do, when is the scan booked for? And to answer your question yes it's perfectly safe. Exactly the same equipment they would use for an early pregnancy scan.
It's fine, perfectly safe. No need to ring them before just tell them when you go for the scan, the sonographer will have done a million of these on women in early pregnancy. Don't worry, will be fine.
