Ultrasound techs need to learn to STFU! When I was pregnant, one tech said a bunch of shit that got me worried & stressed out over nothing. Unless she has M.D. after her name, her mouth needs to stay shut!!!

I've seen that before working in an odgyn clinic. That woman had no idea either. it's uncommon but not terribly uncommon. There is a lot of harmless variety in internal organs. BTW the woman I examined had two vaginas also.

@#5, you're right. My aunt had that, and got it fixed before she got pregnant. ...Of course, my aunt also has FOUR kidneys. And her first baby had none. That whole bloodline is kinda F'd up in the organ department.

It's uncommon, like 0.5% if I remember right? Basically there is another uterus wall down the middle of one uterus (not two separate organs, but one organ sectioned into two) each side has one Fallopian tube, so it's uncommon that you can get pregnant in both sides unless both tubes release an egg that month. Also sometimes the vagina can also be split and there will be two separate cervix. It's called Uterus Didelphys. And no I'm not an obgyn, I'm not pretending to be one and I don't have Uter

#73, if you're referring to #69's comment, he meant 'you' as a general statement. like, why would anyone put it on the Internet if they didn't want jokes to be made. stupid.

65, It's not as rare as you're making it sound. And there's nothing wrong with jokes. You can go ahead and be sympathetic to the OP, but there's no reason in attacking others over their fun. It's not hurting the OP in any way. I wish I had two uteruses. Then I could get rid of the one that's giving me problems. Well, with the assumption that both of them wouldn't have the same problem. I'd also love to have twins. But I suppose they're not technically twins if they're in separate uteruses... A

1/100-1/200 women isn't that rare, and it's not serious, it doesn't affect having kids, it doesn't hurt, unless the Didelphys also affects their vagina most of the time they don't notice. Generally both sides can't get pregnant as the Fallopian tubes behave normally in that only one releases per month (usually). Though it can happen, and there have been cases, it is very very rare (probably as common as a woman with a normal uterus having both sides release). There is a higher risk of difficulti

Absolutely. A lot of clinics have a policy that the tech can not comment on the tests they perform for exactly this reason. It may be frustrating for many patients, who normally wouldn't be having tests taken unless there was a potential for something serious to be wrong with them, but it's been proven over and over than lab techs running their mouths cause more anguish and problems than if they just realized that it takes more than a lab coat to be a doctor.

Ultrasound tech: "Everything looks pretty normal to me, except for the fact that the baby is currently in breach position, don't worry though. They usually change around closer to the due date." You: "YOU DUMBASS IGNORANT BITCH, IS THERE A F*CKING PROBLEM?!!! WHAT THE HELL DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ANYTHING YOU AREN'T A DOCTOR YOU CAN'T TELL ME IF THERE'S A PROBLEM!!!12!!!ONE" Ultrasound tech: "ma'am, I've been doing this for 30 years. Honestly, this is not a serious issue, an

home* Also a sonographer requires a lot of medical training, they can often interpret the sonogram better than the doctor, the doctor also heavily relies on their input for the official diagnosis. I think you undervalue the amount of training on anatomy and all the rest is needed, that's like saying the guy who teaches the doctors anatomy doesn't know shit about the human body because he wanted to teach it instead of practise it. Honestly, there should be an IQ test before being allowed Intern
