    @Mrs Grape:  Cupcakes sounds good!

    I’ve had both vaginal and abdominal ultrasounds.  I always seem to see dark blotchy unidentifiable things in them.  I have no idea what they are.  I’ve given up trying to see for myself and decide what’s going on because I always think I see things and find out later there’s nothing out of the ordinary.

    I’d not stress about the results.  Besides, maybe the blotches are the bad things are making you hurt and are easily treatable by ingesting more cupcakes.

    Going through fertility treatments, I get about 2 of these ultrasounds a week!  I can try to help, but I am no technician!

    Where were the dark spots?  Was she looking at ovaries or uterus?  If she was looking at your ovaries, then black circles could be follicles that contain eggs.  If there were a bunch of little ones, then you may have PCOS.  Don’t get worried…I am not a doctor and really can’t read ultrasounds.  If there was one or two big ones, you may be about to ovulate, or just recently ovulated.  If you have a huge one, it could be a cyst that needs draining.

    If she was looking at your uterus and you saw something weird, it could also be your bladder (if it is full I think it looks real dark) or bowel. 

    Don’t worry!!  In general, I think black spots are normal.

    ETA:  I hope it means puppies!!

    If you don’t ovulate, then they could just be cysts.  Not all cysts are bad.  I have a lot of small ones generally and I don’t ovulate.  I can even have big ones that my body won’t drop, and they hurt.  My hormone levels won’t let me ovulate.  They just get smaller on their own.

    I hope everything is okay. I’ve had two pelvic ultrasounds and I saw black spots. I was nervous, but it was nothing serious. The results came back normal. I was worried about a cyst that I had, but it was harmless.

    I agree it could be a cyst but it also could be your actual ovary.  Its surprising how large they can look on screen.

    I’ve had similar ultrasounds – they started with an abdominal ultrasound but couldn’t see enough, so then went for the pelvic/transvag. The spots you see may be cysts – that’s what they discovered with mine & that along with blood tests & hormone levels resulted in my PCOS diagnosis. I have lots of small follicles and they just.. stay there. Unless they start to get bigger or multiply greatly, there’s not a lot they’ll do for them.

    Good luck with your results!

    @Mrs Grape: Even if the ultrasound was negative, the black splodges could still be cysts… I have PCOS and I had “pearl-necklaced” ovaries (sounds so much prettier that way) but my cysts don’t generally hurt unless one has burst. Given that they’ve said that the ultrasound was negative, I would say the doctor’s surgery thinks that they are nothing to be concerned about 🙂

    it all looks dark and splotchy to me. the first time, i could read the ultrasound tech’s face better than the ultrasound itself. poorly disguised pity is easier to decipher than medical imaging, haha.

    The answer is puppies. Because they are cute and fluffy and adorable. But then cupcakes because they are cute and yummy and adorable. Well, maybe they are tied.
