Ultrasound Fibroid Vs Pregnancy

2 Replies
bz - December 6

This is probably going to sound really dumb, but here goes anyway: My last period started over 6 weeks ago. An HPT at 25 days after a possible conception mishap (about 5 weeks and 5 days after my last period) was negative. It was the 3rd test I had taken - all negative. I have had various "symptoms" of pregnancy (nausea, pms-y, belly button pain, tired) that may very well be psychosematic paranoia and too much internet. At this point given the negative tests, I am fairly well convinced that I'm not pregnant. Yesterday (about 6 weeks, 2 days after my last period) I had a gynochological ultrasound as part of a non-pregnancy-related physical. The ultrasound was done by a doctor who I don't think knew I was late. (Err, long story short - It was a "station" type of clinic, I live in a foreign country and don't speak the language very well). The ultrasound showed a "suspicious 1.5 cm mass" that the doctor suspected was myoma (fibroid). He gave me the printout but I can't really see said mass, though I think he pointed to an area sort of next to my bladder. Is it at all possible that the mass is instead indicating a pregnancy? Or is it completely absurd to think that a gyno wouldn't know 6 week pregnancy from fibroid, even if he weren't anticipating the former? Anyone out there with medical knowledge that could ease my concerns? (We are not TTC, I haven't been taking the best care of myself, etc...)

I'm dismayed that nobody answered! It's been some 5 hours! :-) Haha. The waiting is killing me (just like waiting for the mornings I've allocated for HPTs...)! I guess a simpler way to ask my question is - Would an ultrasound at 6 weeks pregnant show up as a definitive pregnancy?

Hi bz, probably the only one who can give you the real answer to that is the doc that did the u/s... my guess would be that it would be possible to make a mistake if for some reason he would have had to use some other kind of equipment to zoom in further for a pregnancy. But I have no idea if that's true... give them a call. Good luck! :o)
