A transvaginal ultrasound helps check your uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, and pelvic area. This specific kind of ultrasound is done by placing a probe directly into the vagina to better view the anatomy and condition of the uterus and ovaries. The uterus is checked for structural abnormalities, and the ovaries are checked for cysts.

A hysteroscopy helps your fertility specialist better see the uterine cavity to diagnose or treat any problems of the uterus.
