This is a transvaginal scan and requires no preparation other than an empty bladder.
What should I expect during the transvaginal scan?
After you empty your bladder, you will be asked to remove your trousers/skirt and your underwear. You will lie on the examination couch, cover yourself with the cover provided, and a small transducer will be inserted into the vagina. This internal ultrasound scan is similar to a gynaecology exam, but the ultrasonic transducer is however significant smaller than a speculum used in a Pap test.
The transducer will be covered with a protective cover a small amount of gel will be placed on the tip and will be inserted into the vagina. Only a few inches of the transducer will be inserted into the vagina. The transducer will be moved in different directions to obtain the best images.
What will I experience during and after the TV ultrasound scan procedure?
Although the transvaginal/internal examination is usually performed to find a cause for pelvic pain, the sonogram itself should not be painful, but you might feel a tiny amount of discomfort and pressure. An internal ultrasound scan is usually more comfortable and better tolerated than a gynaecological examination.
These ultrasound scan examinations are usually completed within 10 minutes.
After an ultrasound scan examination, you should be able to resume your normal activities immediately.
