Gynaecological ultrasounds

We also provide gynaecological ultrasounds.

A gynaecological ultrasound can be requested by your general practitioner if you experience:

  • Pain in the lower abdomen
  • Disorders of the menstrual cycle such as bleeding between periods, no menstrual bleeding or increase in bleeding during a period

Other reasons for a gynaecological ultrasound:

  • IUD check-up
  • Follicular tracking ultrasound or various ultrasounds as part of a fertility treatment

What can you expect?

Our ultrasound technician will use a small elongated ultrasound probe to assess the uterus, ovaries and lower abdomen internally.
For optimal imaging during the ultrasound examination, your bladder should be empty. If necessary, you can use the toilet in the examination room. In general, an internal ultrasound examination is not painful.

Our ultrasound technician will put you at ease before she starts the examination and she will always explain what she is doing and tell you what she is seeing.

After the examination we will either give a letter with the results to you or send it to your general practitioner.

Your general practitioner will discuss the results of the examination with you and decide whether a follow-up examination is necessary.

Only experienced, female ultrasound technicians work at Echo Amsterdam. We do not have any doctors in training or interns.

Please note: You need to pay for this examination (50 euros) yourself; no tariff has (yet) been defined by the insurance companies. If you wish, we can issue an invoice and you can try to submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Beste cliënt,

Vanaf heden mag er bij naast de zwangere maximaal 1 persoon meekomen naar de echo. Neem dus geen kinderen mee! Wij vragen jullie om niet te vroeg te komen zodat er niet teveel mensen tegelijk in de wachtkamer zitten. Ook mogen wij weer echo's op verzoek inplannen.

Bij klachten als hoesten, niezen, koorts en neusverkoudheid vragen wij je om je afspraak telefonisch te verzetten. Een partner met klachten mag niet mee naar binnen.

Alvast bedankt voor jullie medewerking.
met vriendelijke groet,
medewerkers van Echo Amsterdam

 

Dear cliënt,

From now on you are allowed to bring maximum one extra person besides yourself to your scan. You are not allowed to bring your children.

We can also plan in your ultrasound upon request.

Please don't arrive too early to prevent too many people in the waiting room at the same time.
When you or your partner are coughing, sneezing or having a fever, we ask you to reschedule your appointment by telephone.

Thanks for your coöperation,
best regards,
the team of Echo Amsterdam
