According to Fox News.com, a woman has filed a lawsuit against Advocate Condell
in Libertyville, Ill., claiming that a transvaginal
ultrasound she received there made her feel like she "was being raped," Medical
Marianne Keith, 52, said she came to the medical center in February with
severe stomach pain, and the doctors recommended she have the procedure done in
order to look for potential abnormalities in her pelvic organs. Transvaginal
ultrasounds are frequently utilized during a woman's pregnancy but can also be
used for diagnostic purposes.
According to Medical Daily, Keith claimed that the ultrasound turned into an
hour of physical abuse and that the hospital technician "repeatedly jammed the
probe into various internal portions of [her] vagina, include her cervix."
"After I left the hospital, I knew by how much pain I was in that
something was done to me," Keith told reporters.
Keith said that she has had several transvaginal ultrasounds in the past
during fertility treatments, but none of those procedures compared to the
incident in February. She says she now has recurring nightmares of being
trapped and having to go through the procedure again
"My husband and I don't have any type of intimacy, because I don't want
anybody touching me. I have physical things that are the matter with me, and I
can't even go to the doctor anymore," Keith said.
Advocate Condell Medical Center has not commented on the incident, according to
