The TUSHY Method: "U"

By Dr. Aimee Eyvazzadeh, aka The Egg Whisperer, board certified OBGYN, specializing in infertility and reproductive endocrinology

“U” in TUSHY stands for ultrasound of uterus. A pelvic ultrasound is an important first test for any woman having trouble conceiving.

Why you should get one:

The ultrasound will verify if there are any anatomic issues affecting your fertility. It will help a doctor determine the size, shape, and position of the uterus, as well as determine the number of follicles present (Antral Follicle Count), which is a good indicator of a patient’s ovarian reserve. The ultrasound can also detect whether a patient has fibroids or ovarian cysts, which most often are evidence of a growing egg or recent ovulation. On occasion, however, a cyst may represent an abnormality such as endometriosis.

How to get one done:

A pelvic exam by your doctor could miss many common reasons for uterine causes of fertility issues such as a fibroid in the middle of your uterus. A pelvic ultrasound is pretty simple, non-invasive and it’s also more detailed, giving you a better assessment.
