When you attend a Gynaecologist you will require an examination of your abdomen (tummy) and pelvis (vaginal examination) This will assess if the womb (uterus) is enlarged.
You will also have an ultrasound scan. This may be performed through your tummy (transabdominal) or through the vagina (transvaginal). A transvaginal scan uses a narrow probe placed in your vagina. It may cause a little discomfort but should not cause pain.
You will have a blood test checked to make sure your blood count is not low.
Depending on the findings of the vaginal examination and ultrasound scan you may need to have a Hysteroscopy.
