Endometriosis is a condition where cells that are traditionally located within the womb cavity are located outside. This condition affects about 10% of the female population and is usually found in women in their thirties or forties. However, it can also be found in teens and young women.

Our endometriosis scan investigates the womb area and checks whether this condition appears within the patient. It will look for these cells outside of the womb using ultrasound scanning.

What does an endometriosis scan include?

Our endometriosis scan includes:
Detailed report and images
May involve a transvaginal/internal scan
30 minute appointment

What is the purpose of an endometriosis scan?

The purpose of an endometriosis scan is to determine whether the patient is experiencing symptoms such as lower abdominal pain, painful periods, infertility or irregular periods due to endometriosis. The scan will investigate whether these cells appear outside of the womb.

Endometriosis Scan FAQs

Do I need to drink water before my scan appointment?

Our guidance is to drink approximately 1 litre of water, at least 20 minutes prior to the scan.

Can I eat and drink before my scan?

There are no restrictions that you cannot eat or drink before your endometriosis scan.

Who will perform the endometriosis scan?

All of our sonographers are qualified with diagnostic gynaecology ultrasound scanning experience and are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council or Society of Radiographers and also work within the NHS alongside their role within Ultrasound Plus.

Does an internal scan always need to be performed?

No, each scan is dependent on each individual’s examination. However, an internal investigation can provide clearer views and will be discussed with you by the Sonographer before proceeding with the internal examination and obtain your consent.

What do I need to wear for the scan?

We advise that you wear something light, airy and baggy. Otherwise, you may need to change into a gown if necessary.

What do I need to bring to my endometriosis scan?

Please bring along your hospital notes (if you have been given them) and reports to assist out Sonographers if a referral is required.

Will you advise me of any abnormalities?

Please note, our scans do not replace any of your NHS scans. During your appointment, in any event of a medical referral being required, we will discuss this with you and provide a full report for you to forward on to your health practitioner.

Do I still need to visit the NHS if I had a scan with you?

Yes, our services are a complementary service, which works alongside the NHS.

What happens in terms of referrals?

We advise all of our customers to advise their GP/Healthcare provider know of their intention to have a scan with us. On arrival at Ultrasound Plus we will ask you to complete a registration form, where your GP/Healthcare provider details will be requested. If from the endometriosis scan there shows a need to contact or share any information regarding your scan, you are responsible for providing the report to your GP/Healthcare provider.

I have medical insurance; can I claim for my scans?

We will provide you with an invoice after you pay Ultrasound Plus directly for your endometriosis scan. This can be used to make a claim with your insurance company, but this is between you and the insurance company. We would advise you check this prior to your scan to avoid disappointment.

How many guests/children can come with me?

We are happy for family and friends to attend and we are able to accommodate up to 5 people with the patient. Children are welcome too.
