Naboth bladder in pregnancy
- I'm pregnant in 7 weeks. Yesterday I went to the gynecologist and after the internal ultrasound he did, the doctor gave a diagnosis not too happy. He said that "the Naboth vesicle is not round as it should be but oval." He said this shows that it is not a "good job". He told me that there are 3 options: to lose the pregnancy, to recover this "Naboth bladder" or to form a child with malformations. I am desperate. What can you tell me? He is a good doctor but I don't trust him very much, because another neighbor of mine was his patient and he also said: the child does not have a hand, he does not know what format and he always called to control the cabinet .Answer:
Interpretation of the shape of the bladder Naboth is made taking into account the evolution in the dynamics of this bladder. In general, the shape of the Naboth vesicle visualized ultrasound has many aspects, of which the most prone to error is the incidence under which it is visualized, the incidence which holds in turn not only by how we position the transducer (ultrasound probe), but also by the changes of its position, even within the same ultrasound examination; Therefore, I consider it more important to evaluate the regularity of the shape (ie a regular contour), even if this vesicle is slightly oval. Repeat ultrasound would be useful in the dynamic tracking of the Naboth vesicle shape.
Also, it is very important the collaboration between you and the obstetrician doctor that will monitor the good performance of the pregnancy, this collaboration depending on how to prevent any problems during a pregnancy. In this sense, if you fail to give her full confidence, try to find out the opinion of another doctor, because, regardless of the doctor you choose for pregnancy, it is good to listen to her advice. Good health!
